High Tea....

men at work?

This was at this very cool little spot called "Water Works" on Road 309. Translated - middle of nowhere.

You get to play with lots of different things.... most things run by water. It's cool! And very pretty little area to wander.

a while.....

Life has been crazy busy, and there is so much to catch up on......

My friend Jilyjane from Christchurch came up to visit a couple of weeks ago. It was so nice to catch up with her! We went and stayed at a little township in the Coromandel and explored by day - which even included some lovely lazing in the sun at Hot Water Beach.

We had two days up there, which was perfect.

Now we're busy plotting where we can run away to next...... Australia is looking good. :)

Guy Fawkes

Seems like a truly bizarre thing to celebrate... someone trying to blow up Parliament in London.

Still..... while the weather was miserable on Wednesday 5th November, we'll be having a big bonfire this weekend with sparklers for the kids (myself included) this weekend.

Instead of celebrating Guy Fawkes we'll be celebrating my oldest brother's birthday, as well as just having the chance to hang out as a family.

Tessa is due in just over a week... so soon the family will have one more. Exciting times! I've even been asked if I would like to be there for the big moment. I'm not sure how my boss is going to react to that, but I would love to be around. :) Tessa is such a sweetie always thinking about including her family. Love her to bits. Such an absolute blessing!!!

Hope everyone else is finding time for their family....

Be blessed. xxx
