flax flowers

Was up on the hill catching the sunset, and just having a romp around.... the blue sky just set these flowers off..... so New Zealand.


Yes... I think he's pretty damn cute!


5 weeks later, and I finally have my computer back, up and running!!! I actually got it back on Monday - alas.... plugged it in, and got all excited, only to discover that it wouldn't work. hahaha... the madness. How do these things happen to me - I ask you!
I was up in Wellington on Tuesday.... which was another crazy day too.... they had overbooked my flight, and tried to tell me that I was going to have to buy another plane ticket. Tried very hard to get my head around that one. Insanity! :)
Anyway.... on Wednesday I called the computer place to see what was going on, only to be told that it hadn't even been looked at yet. ARHG! I was beginning to loose my patience... what little I have!
From there on, I was calling every 3 hours to check in. Classic really. Picked it up this morning.... only to discover there was one more bug to be sorted... so in I went again. This time I got to hang around to watch as they fixed it.

Anyway... here I sit.... keyboard in hand, and feeling much better... knowing I can once again communicate with the wild and wacky world!

Not only that.... but I've just downloaded all the pics that I've taken on my new camera! Watch out world!!!

So.... for your viewing pleasure..

Smile guys.

Just got home to the farm.... ahhhhhh, the smell of the green grass, the dog, the meowing cats, the bleeting goats, and the galloping horses.....followed by manic sneezing! :)
Loving it..... plus the belly shaking laughter from hanging out with my crazy brothers, sisters-in law, and parents. It is such a funny family to be part of, and one that seems to be growing at a rapid rate. Mind you, I'm also the only single one amongst the lot! :) Joys!

So.... will try and get some pics up here while I have a computer to use. Crazy trying to catch up on emails - so just not going to try.... 6thousand sitting there waiting for my attention. hahahahaha. I don't think so.

very quickly before I crash..... most important thing.... my nephew is so super cute, and well behaved with the cutest smile and laugh.....

Life is good!

Be blessed.

a little nuts

actually.... that's a complete lie. I was more than a little nuts over the weekend.

I still haven't got my computer back, which is driving me crazy.... this poor little laptop of mine just can't cope with being online, and writing is such a slow long process. Shouldn't complain, because it is still better than nothing! :)

So... this weekend you might think that I would think about a new computer, which has gone through my head a few times, but instead... it was a new camera that grabbed my attention! I've been wiaiting for ever to get one, and it took much to decide whether I would go for a digital or get a trusty old 35mm? I ended up going for a nice Nikon SLR, which I've had fun playing with today. Went up the hill yesterday to try and catch a sunset. Today it was off to the beach, which wasn't exceptional stuff, but got one of a couple of kids that I do like.
So - will have to wait for the computer to come back, and then I can get them up and on here! :)

That's it from me.... hope everyone is well. I'll hopefully be back up this week?! Heading to the farm on Friday to meet my nephew, and play with the horses. I've been promised a ride on Tui. Can't wait!! :)
