Girl from NZ (Week 10 – My Sunday Photo)

 A Girl From NZ

By Donna-Louise Bishop

There was a girl who moved to New Zealand,

When she left for new seas and sand,

Her friends and family missed her lots,

She hadn’t even met their tots!

But nearly three years on and the reunion was grand.


This week’s My Sunday Photo was inspired by my friend Leanne, which in turn inspired me to write a little limerick.

Hopefully you get the gist of it but basically my friend of more than 15 years moved to New Zealand three years ago.

She moved about a month before my eldest was due and although we’ve always chatted on Skype – with my babies – this photo shows the first time she met them in person (this week).

It’s not easy to maintain any relationship long distance and it’s even harder to make-up if arguments happen. The best thing to do is to grow together, not apart, and cherish the few moments you have together.

So here you have it; it’s been three years in the making but this is #MySundayPhoto this week.

Thanks to OneDad3Girls for hosting.
