My day today

My Mummy brain got a bit of a work out. Early childhood curriculum and assessment of learning!!

Every good day includes some knitting (of course).

Harvest time.

The outcome won't be a wonderfully historic moment like the US election this week but it will be a close race and will be interesting to see which way it goes in the end. I found myself feeling lucky to live in a society where I can participate in a democratic process to decide who governs the country. Did you know New Zealand was the first country in the world to allow women the vote?

Yes, do you know today when I went to vote I found myself feeling very grateful and quite moved by the significance of what I was doing as I considered how we have it compared to so many others. I noticed that I could go in peace to make my vote. I wasn't coerced, I wasn't intimidated, I wasn't threatened. The process is unlikely to be rigged. Although NZ isn't perfect, I'm so grateful for our democratic process and we shouldn't take it for granted.
