3 months ago today
we flew out of the old
and into the new.

So much significant has happened in that short time
not the least being that we have met some extraordinary people.

Last night we were invited to an Expataversary
by this lovely family, to celebrate their first year in Singapore.

It was a beautiful outdoor dining experience
table under lamplit trees
with exquisite food and merry company.

How we laughed.

And it was so good to be a part of other people's lives and raise a glass to their journey.
It has to be said that kiwis cop a bit of flak here, as we are such a minority and the larger ranks of Aussies (esp armed with rugby results) take chortling delight in rubbing in our proud heritage.

Good to peel off tight heels and tiptoe down puddly pavements
to share a taxi to retrieve sleepy babes from friend's beds and couches
and drive quiet warm streets home...
I said home....
It is becoming.

Thanks Barronskis for a great night, and congrats.
And thanks to the Bozzies for being heart friends and letting our girls crash at theirs.
And thanks to Jojo & Pipsqueak who infect us all with their fizzing humour.
