Abacus and I had a weekend to ourselves while Danielle went for a 3 day seminar in Kaikoura. I went to pick her up from creche at 2, having left work early to do so, only to find she'd gone to sleep at 1:50, and didn't wake up again until 3:40! cheeky girl. Fortunately I had a long book to pass the time with(McCarthy's Border Trilogy - it's  hella good!). We had a great weekend, despite having to negotiate a bus to go to Karori, two things I vowed never to do again, but Abacus needed to go to the doctor. Doctors by the way can be waaaaaay nicer than their secretaries! We did a lot of walking around which Abacus seemed to enjoy. I noticed everyone giggling at her and looked down to find she was smiling at everyone with her cheeky grin. 

She's started to roll around a lot to get to things, she rolled to a chair and lay there talking to it for a long time. She also loves rolling uner the clothes horse and playing with the drying clothes. Like all babies she's much more interested in such things than her toys. She's still balancing for a few seconds sitting up, she tries to push herself up into a sitting position and puts her arms in the right place, but they are just that bit too shortt that she can't get up all the way! 

It's almost been a year since we met here face to face. Hard to believe, in many ways it seems like it wasn't long ago, and in many it seems like all this couldn't have fit into a year.
