Catch up continued

Ok waking up to another glorious day here with not a cloud in the sky *sigh*. Kids are still on their summer break so have another 10 days before they go back to school. As I said we have been spending most of it at Mt Maunganui. Every day we always walk round or up the Mt as it is affectionately called. The photo is of grumpy tired kids who are hanging out for an ice cream! It's a 3.5 km walk around and there is always something different to see whether it be seals basking on the rocks, paragliders at the top, seagulls and their babies, fishermen, cruise or cargo ships coming in and out of the harbour......















We are getting a new family member as well. A little bichon frise. He is only 6 weeks old in this picture and we don't pick him up for another 3 weeks but the breeder sent us these piccies. Isn't he just adorable. With Tony's warped sense of humour, he wants to name him Sooty or Midnight!!!





I am not stitching at all and haven't for months and months. In fact it is probably about 18 months or so since I last picked up my cross stitch. However, I am spending lots of time with the family, I am in my garden and I spend a lot of time cooking and experimenting. I am continuing with my university studies this year as well as working so guess those needles will stay gathering dust for a bit longer!!

Catch up

Gosh hard to believe half a year has gone by since I last wrote. Along with laziness, an almost dead modem that has now been replaced and summer, computer time has been somewhat limited. So now with a renewed interest, I am posting again.

I am now an old married woman. We had a fantastic time in Rarotonga and the most amazing wedding. So glad we took the kids. I have a video of it to upload but for now photos will have to do. I loved Rarotonga. Tony and I both intend to go back soon sans children. The photos don't do it justice...it really is like something off a postcard. It was very relaxed and just me, Tony and the kids. We used a local photographer and wedding celebrant and got married on the beach.

Sarah...looks so angelic...if only you knew the truth!



In the photographer's garden



Been spending loads of time at the beach. We have had the most glorious summer. We have just had 32 days without rain and amazing cloudless days. Unfortunately the garden and lawn are suffering though.

Will be back later to update some more. Got some things to do now.
