Even though we live in suburbia in a single story house, I still have some favourite windows I love to look out. One of those is from the spare bedroom. If I look past the house across the road, I can see the beautiful hills. On a clear day, they remind me a bit of back home, in Havelock North, where my Granny lived and we would visit her for lunch each Sunday. She, like us, lived at the foot of the hills but was surrounded by their beauty.
