When holidays go wrong

Its not just about craft.  There’s movies, books, food, friends, family and more food!

So last week I was supposed to have the week off work and hang with my daughter.  Well that didn’t work.  Guilt made me not take it so all last weeks plans ended with me at my desk doing my work thing.

Oh well, lifes like that.

All in all it wasn’t a bad week considering.  In-Laws were home so we had to visit them.  Always a pleasure and this one resulted in whitebait so I now have a very happy husband.

Because I was helping in the office I didn’t get to gym as much as I would like so a ran a little after work instead.  Man running on a road is way different from running on a treadmill.  I can run 40minutes on a treadmill without a drama.  I can run 500 meters on the road and I need a wee walk till my breath is back.  Still I’m running a road kilometre in 6 minutes so its not all bad.

Friday night saw the back neighbour come over for a drink with my daughter. A good night ensued and we threw extra on the BBQ and she wobbled home about 11ish.  It was nice getting to know her a little better 🙂

Saturday night was out to dinner night with the neighbours to our side.  We ended at The Social Club.  Man the food there is good! I will have to take K one night when she’s working again.  The had a live New Orleans styled jazz band going so we stayed there until 11 after dinner and just enjoyed them.

Visually we watched the new version of Rocky Horror Picture Show.  Wowzers it’s bad.  I am going to have to watch the original this weekend just to get that out of my head.

Kayla emailed a complaint to the local cinema regarding the way we were treated last weekend.  When they hadn’t responded by Thursday she sent another more scathing email.  This gained some action and an apology, which was all she was after, as well as free tickets.  She has asked that we not go back to that cinema and use the other associated cinema nearby instead.  As we were the only people there during the issue she is fairly confident the guy would recognise us and spit in our popcorn.  She may have a point hahaha

I never even cooked anything interesting last week.  Kayla is still pretty fragile after having Shingles and tires really easily so we are not really doing too much because of that.  A trip to the supermarket is almost too much for her somedays but she is getting better so I might see if she wants to do a bit of a walk around the mount this weekend coming.

Cross fingers that we do some interesting stuff this week so I don’t bore all of you and myself with my life 😀



Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D
