Weekly round up

This week was a busy one, but then I am beginning to wonder when don’t we have a busy one. This weekend seems to have gone in a flash and I pretty much got no time to myself and the next weekend looks to be the same.

This past week I visited a client and found an unusual fence adornment


I’m not 100% sure what this was about but it made me laugh so I took a photo 🙂

Our beautiful eldest went out so we got to play in the downstairs lounge for a bit 😀


And I stole some Gladdies from my brothers garden


In our quest for a stronger cardio system we once again tackled that big hill at the end of the road and this time took an old friend with us

That view really is stunning and well worth the hike 😀 As a bit of a treat I introduced Tina to Chia Lattes when we came down 🙂

Sunday was roast night and we had both my mum and my niece around for the meal 🙂 I impressed myself with my decorating skills and we had a pav


A bloody tasty one it was too.

Dinner didn’t go completely to plan.  Darling husband put beautiful eldest’s car through a compression test as its been running a bit rough and somehow managed to break it completely.  Beautiful eldest then did her best she demon impression and we all hid from her.  Ralph worked on that car for 3 hours with multiple phone calls to friends before admitting defeat.  Luckily my cousins husband is an auto electrician so he came to our rescue after dinner and fixed it, thank heavens.  I swear I was pretty close to drawing a devils trap and sticking she demon in it until we could get an exorcist around.  All is well now and the she demon is back under control.  We have promised babysitting services in the not too distant future to my cousin for late night Sunday rescue services.  The kids are gorgeous so I am sure it won’t be a major chore 😀










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
