Happy Easter or whatever it is you're meant to say today! I personally have been in the garden, playing my guitar, chucking out old clothes that live in the bottom of my dresser draws because I don't like/wear them and I have eaten one whole chocolate egg and I plan on attacking another one before the day is through. Completely eventful day today! You??
So remember my post a month ago??? About wanting my Dad to give up smoking.
Well fingers crossed - he's been smoke free for 1 month on Tuesday 10th April. I don't know what done it - I still don't know if he read the blog (fairly certain he did) but who cares what it was that finally made him decide enough is enough - it's freakn AMAZING!
For those of you who don't know I work with my parents and every morning I use to walk in the door and my hayfever would start up straight away because of the smoke. Now though I haven't even had to take any pills so that's a big plus for me. Plus side for Dad is he's looking healthier and smelling better (aka not like a dirty smokey unloved person). He won't talk much about it but he does seem happier too - I am so proud of him. It can't be easy giving up something you've done for around 30 years of your life.
Thank you to everyone who left their comments publicly or privately. It was supportive and sad in some cases to see what you have been through either yourself or with a family member.
Music wise . . . I'm just getting songs sorted for the South Island tour that is coming around super fast. Even considering buying a pretty little light to make me blue (or red) while singing - I think I will!
Hmmm ok better go hunt down that bunny and make him hand over the egg!
