We've been down in Auckland for a couple of nights and boy is it good to be back home. As nice as it is to visit friends and family, and we also had some fireworks with some friends last night, it's always good to get back to the peace and quiet of the farm. No bright street lights, noisy cars, planes, trains (well maybe the occasional one), dogs, sirens etc.
Life seems noticeably hectic in the city, everyone rushing around in a hurry. We don't miss it at all.
The first thing I did after getting home was collect the eggs and then go into the vege garden to collect a large head of broccoli for dinner. G picked some ripe strawberries for us to munch on. Yum.
