ah the joy of seeing yourself in film as it of these days I might even have legs in it!
this was one day at the weekend....going to church? I think....

black leggings = farmers
cute ballet flats = warehouse
cardi = glassons
tunic thingy whatsit = House of W (er thats warhouse for those who are wondering - hehe, sounds classier!)...not that impressed with the 'foofiness' of it and lack of shaping ..but do like the pattern

check out our lovely other wednesday wardrobe ladies....and have yourself a great day xx

miss daisy brown

we are loving having the opportunity to rear this sweet girl...and to be able to take her to calf day is supercool....I grew up on various types of farms - and we would all love to be living on one now for the kids (and me!!)...but that isn't gonna happen anytime soon - so this is the perfect compromise....all the kids love going down the road to this wonderful spot....where in a few weeks we'll been 'raisin our corn and planting our taters' too ....part-time faux farming is fun!

jungle fever

Schools out and we sent off the term in style!
I love family nights...which come in all shapes and styles round these parts...and to be honest, sometimes don't happen for a week or 2- but I'm super glad when I do make the effort - doesn't cost anything/much and memories are made - WHOOP!!
Jungle fever hit our place...and hey presto before you know it, we have the menu, the decor and the costumes .... jungle music and BAD jungle jokes....a bit off face paint and everyone gets a bit silly - tis fun eh?!....introducing....
the asian rastafarian bongo playing elephant, the girl kitty black panther, the terrifying t-rex, the wild 'pippy' dog, the waterfall man and the butterfly.... waterfall man took out the prize at the end of the night - I suspect bribery and self promotion had ALOT to do with that!....
...a movie with intermission (little boys put to bed), and a wee relax - ahhhh; totally LOVE school holidays!

happy weekend

Lemon Honey drop cookies - mmmmmmmm...
hope y`all get to do some of this over the weekend....we had a lovely picnic in Rotorus planned, with fly fishing for the kids and a visit with my Nana....but given the sky has opened up....I think I'll do this, and perhaps try an convince Rhyley the cat the blanket I'm working on isn't for him - silly kitty.

FATHER's DAY-late eek!

i am week late posting these pics - for shame!...needless to say we had a wonderful Father's Day celebrating the Dad at our place, and all that he is and does!
Church, followed by a picnic morning tea (with blueberry apple muffin cake - yum!)...running races, swing challenges (I won the wheeeeeeeeee side of things, the Man won the make- the- swing- double- back- on- itself- scare -your -wife thing). Handstand competitions, and piggy back rides ....then home for a steak sandwich lunch, with all the trimmings....grunt grunt....a rugby game was viewed and the BBQ fired up for the first time of the season to come .... a good day in a man's book - no?
We love you - man of ours - you rock as a bloke, a hubby and a Dad.
