Two weeks worth of stuff

Didn’t get a chance to add everything in last week so this will have two weeks worth of stuff in it 😀

So the boss left the office one afternoon and this happened 😉 We sent him this picture to show how hard we were working.


As you can see, he has good taste in whiskey 😀

On the Friday we had to make a rather lengthy detour through Rotorua to pick up a Trademe purchase. I got a 1930’s leadlight display cabinet almost identical to this one (forgot to get photo sorry) for $31.  The glass on right needs repair and the whole thing needs a light sand and clean up but what a bargin.


I’m going to turn it into a liqueur cabinet as it is in our downstairs games room 😀 I already have a similar one upstairs that we inherited.

On the way home we made a pitstop at Okere Falls for a wee Chardonnay as one does.  Had to get a photo of the sign as Rocket my daughers nickname while she was at Trout Lodge in Missouri.  I’m pretty sure that they called her this as she does everything, including speaking, at lightning speed haha She now has a wee rocket tattood on her foot


We had a lot on last week with a friends 50th birthday and our first Christmas function (NZ doesn’t have Thanksgiving so Christmas starts last week of November) so movies for last week were only 2.


Loved it!!! Seriously enjoyed watching this 😀 Totally laughed my butt off 🙂 a strong 4.5/5 stars

and then this


It was so bad it was hilarious 😀 Again I laughed my butt off but not for the right reasons.  Truly epicly bad.  The lackings of the script were only surpassed by the awful acting.  If you are a fan of the B grade horror, as I am, then you will love this 😀 1/5 stars on the real movie system but a 3.5/5 on the B grade horror gradient 😀

The family christmas function that we went to was really not Chritmassy at all and just an excuse for my husbands extended family to gather.  It used to be Christmas eve at Gran’s house but with her passing a few years ago its been pushed out the the last week of November so that more can make it.  It was earlier again this year, I’m not sure why.  Anyway we had a wee disaster driving in.  This happened:

If you look closely you can see that there is a metal bar sticking up.  This attached itself to our under carriage and we had to get the car jacked up and used scaffolding planks to drive off it.  We now have a ventilated muffler that requires repair.  Found out we are the third car, worst damage, to have this happen to and they have had 2 punctures off it in the last 2 weeks! I was not a happy camper we I found that out.  Up until then I had been all ‘stuff happens’ but that irked me.  Made the car sound rather grunty though haha



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
