Seriously telling the man in red exactly what she wants. Yeah, its not even december yet, I know. But we were in town, early in the morning and getting the visit done before the crowds set in was very appealing!

Looking very small in the big hall where she did her ballet recital. She did so well. And enjoyed it, which was the very most important part.

A walk this week, a sunny period between rain. Warm and delightful and very abundantly green. Lots to see and appreciate.

Christmas clothes, christmas ornaments. A little pattern testing that ive combined into Christmas clothes making. Her own ornaments. The easiest, fastest most fuss free pizza Ive ever made. Seriously. I make pizza pretty often and make the dough myself. Im no novice in that respect. But. This. Was live changing.

Two ingredients. No rise! And yes I will share. 2 cups of self raising flour + 2 cups of natural or greek yoghurt. Mix into a very wet and sticky dough. divide into 4 (or 3 in our case) and plop onto floured baking parchment. Sprinkle with flour and flatten. beware its *sticky*. Add topping. Slide onto a preheated tray. Cook. I did mine at 250 (or the hottest my oven would go – so probably a bit above 250) for about 10 mins or until it looked cooked.

The kid decorated hers herself. Child cooking for a win.

Thank me later 😉

Nutella down her chin. Sunday pancakes, our ritual.

The Hororata highland games. The kid even had a go at a few things. Good weather, good waffles, a few stalls to look round and activities for everyone.

She has a purposeful walk that belies the timid natures she nurtures inside. She is strong minded and chatty yet a sensitive wee soul, easily offended and hurt. Staunch we call her.

Its that time of year again. The sprinklers are out. Water punctuates our days and is the perfect way to unwind and decompress after a hot day.

The local 4×4 mud plug was cancelled due to excess water last year so it was with great delight we saw that this year was a go! 4×4 trucks, mud, gumboots, hot chips and sunshine = a great sunday! It was an inauspicious start. We arrived and the kid declared she wanted to go home as the cars were too loud. In fairness to her there was one backfiring every 20 seconds or so at the dart which was pretty loud and a couple of beefy grindy engines!

After a little while and walking to find some good holes with lots of mud spraying up and a few rescues needed she got into it. We ended up meeting friends so the kids played and watched and squealed as mud got flung about. Even more of the kids buddies were discovered and in the end she didn’t want to leave.  It was a great day of classic kiwi fun.
