On Monday Lois, Zoe and I went to Glastonbury to visit my Mum and to say farewell to the Parlours. My nephew James and his family Yvette, Griffin and Daithi were due to fly back to New Zealand after working in Ireland for a couple of years. It was sad to think we wouldn't see them for a while but we are thrilled for my sister Kate who is so excited that they are coming back to Kaitaia. She hasn't met her newest grandson, Daithi yet. He shares Irish citizenship with her in that they were both born in the republic.
Griffin had prepared a treasure hunt for us all. After finding the chocolate treasure we headed up the Tor where Lois took some great photos. At the end of the day they didn't say goodbye, just 'see you later', a great kiwi phrase that even complete strangers say to each other. Yvette said, 'we're just off to the shops' - in New Zealand!
