Where have you been?

Where have you been?

Where have YOU been? Where have I been?! Not on rivettingkatetaylor it seems 🙂

Life has been busy in the Taylor household – August and September are traditionally my busiest months of the year – both time and income wise – and you know what this silly tart did this year? Got another job! Starting date? Early August. Why? Because I could. But boy, it has been busy.

Roadsafe Hawke’s Bay is my new employer, via the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council.  I am based out of the Waipawa office working 10 hours a week (Monday and Tuesday). I work with stakeholders such as NZ Police, college (SADD), Epic Ministries, Land Transport, ACC…. to make our roads a safer place.

So everything I used to do in seven days, now I do in five. Today is Wednesday. I am not at golf and that’s why!

Lachlan, 10, coming first in the 10/11 year old boys age group

Sarah, 12, high fiving her mates as she comes in fourth in the Girls 12+ age group. The girl in the yellow is friend Rebecca who finished about half an hour before everyone else and wasn’t even puffing (slight exaggeration!)

Sarah and her best friend Kate, 11, who came third in the age goup below

Both Taylor children are running in interschool cross country at Flemington tomorrow and both are also busy practising for Ngati Whai – a large Maori kapa haka festival hosted by Takapau School and Te Kura Kaupapa O Takapau every year. Sarah the redhead looks right at home in the front row of the senior group and my skinny little white boy is leading the junior haka. Can’t wait to see it!

Snow on the ranges this morning and slightly less on the front lawn til the sun came up. Sun is coming and going, as is the rain. Four seasons in one day around here.
