Well hellooooo!  Looks like you can mix up a mean batch of scones Rory!  (I like to think I am a bit of a scone whizz as well!) Sounds like the Bead lady did not have such a good day I hope she is okay.  Today I walked downtown before school pick up called into Mums shop then went to a meeting at the Kindergarten.  After the meeting Stella and I picked up the boys and we walked home in the chilly afternoon air.  Once home I couldnt find my house keys...ANYWHERE!  after a few stressful minutes I managed to track them down at the Kindy and the lovely Head Teacher (Heather) brought them up to me!  What a dingbat I am!!Kody and Ben thought it was pretty funny, I couldnt see the funny side.  Anyway its pretty cold here tonight, I hope you are nice and warm down there.....Home soon YIPPEE!!!!!! Lots of love The Johnstons xxxxxx

Hey there Rory, whoop whoop to the end of radiotherapy on Monday!  There is a huge picture of you and your dad in the Dargaville and Districts paper this morning and by the look on your face you were totally enjoying shaving his hair off!  Nice job!  It was cool to meet grannie Gardiner on Saturday, she is so lovely and I can see that she is a very special person in your lives.  Korie wished he got to play with you at his house after the shave off, but he had been invited to Caids for the afternoon.  Take care and 'hi' to mum love Kathryn xox

Hi Rory, what a lot of fun it must have been to see all that hair flying on Saturday.
Leigh, when i moved to Dargavliie in 1987 i had never heard of the place (being a Hawkes Bay chick) and when we had to leave for Bruce's work 12 years later it was very hard. The people are all amazing and my 2 oldest boys had fantastic years there supported by some of the same fantastic people now supporting you - and me again as it happens.
Thanks for your card and kind thoughts, we are struggling here with our lives but get warm fuzzies following your positive journey. Zane loves reading the updates and looking at the photos. Go Trudi
