Happy Holidays At Home
By Lee-Anne Waho
My holiday was one of rest, sleep, relaxation and Netflix.
Term Two was quite busy so when it came to the holidays I was ready to sleep…and sleep I did. Some days I didn’t get out of bed until after lunchtime. Those days went very quickly once I was finally up.
I found some really interesting documentaries on Netflix that I just couldn’t stop watching because they were so intriguing they were about people who were convicted of crimes that they didn’t actually commit. Watching them made me feel very grateful that we live in Aotearoa New Zealand.
I had two road trips to Ashburton. On one of these visits, I meet up with Mrs Duthie and some other staff who have been at our school for years and years and years. We had lunch at quite a nice place and caught up on what everybody had been doing. It had been raining quite a lot and the flooding on the streets was a bit of a worry.
On my second trip to Ashburton, I took my mum for lunch and to a wool shop. She’s a really good knitter and likes looking at different types and colours of wool. (It’s not really my thing but I was glad Mum enjoyed it).
The holidays are now over and we are back to school. Although I miss the lazy days, I am happy to be back with Te Ara Angitu.
