I'm sitting on a very comfortable leather settee looking out of massive sliding glass doors over the trees of the domain to the beautifully lit up skyline of Auckland at night. These must be million dollar views yet because we're in Ronald McDonald house we're not paying anything.
We even got a lovely cooked tea for free, when members of the ASB bank came and cooked an enormous barbecue followed by yummy cheesecake from the cheesecake factory shop. Noah has been in the Ronald McDonald house school and taken part in "stretch and grow" movement class and tomorrow we should get a free trip to Auckland zoo.
All of this makes us feel a bit of a fraud as we are basically now here on holiday while we wait for Friday morning surgery for Isaac.
Both boys are pretty overexcited and out of routine but we have finally (been trying since 11am for Isaac) got them to sleep.
Paul managed to do a bit of work on his hospital computer - thus justifying it being here with us - not just for my blogging and I caught the bus to Newmarket for an hours shopping. Tomorrow morning we plan to put Noah in the school again then visit Middle Earth tiles and Freedom furniture to get some ideas for the new house.
Joyful and Triumphant
