After an enjoyable morning observing a child with global developmental delay in the Middle Years Programme at the Champion Centre, I set about celebrating my birthday on the other side of the world.
Flowers arrived from the three wonderful men in my life
And birthday cards from friends and colleagues.
Today I explored another part of the City of Christchurch where the cathedral ruins sit amongst new shopping arcades and monuments.
And the botanical gardens
A glass of wine in the early spring sunshine finished the afternoon off nicely.
