There must have been a power surge in Petone last night at around 6.30. Cos all us mums were getting ready for the annual "We made it through another year" get together at a pub in Petone. Hair was straightened. Hair was curled. Lipgloss applied. Fancy pants tops and dresses and heels were chucked on. Because when do we get the chance to do that? Hardly ever right?
There were maybe 30 of us Petone mums there last night. Beautiful, beautiful women. With one thing in common. The ability to laugh at ourselves.
It was run day yesterday. I loved it. A zip down the esplanade and back with Mumford's Below My Feet carrying me home.
