whatever you do, dont panic!
The girls are with their dad this weekend. he's flown down for 3 nights and they're all bunkered down in a hotel in town but B2 came back for the day yesterday to babysit an 8 month old for friends. They're mad kiwis; shes had hypothermia three times from engaging in extreme sports, been airlifted off Mt Cook and her partner almost died from renal failure from running a 52 km trail run in 38 degreee temps. That was last year. This year they decided to walk it, only taking 12hours; he hydrated well and she wasn't 30 weeks pregnant. Nuts. So they paid B1 $100 bucks for a 12 hour day. not bad for a 13 yo in my book. she loves babies and the day went really well; we took the 2 beans for walks and she fed, changed and put 'her' bean to bed. then she came out to join me in the garden while they were both inside sleeping AND SHE SHUT THE DOOR. a pizza oven brick came in handy. We now have a spare key somewhere.
