Weekending

We had a lovely weekend, hubby was able to ditch work (mostly) and despite rain on both days – yeah, really, torrential rain. Nasty. Saturday we were going to local town but due to the weather we about turned and headed to the covered play areas of town – or McDonalds as its also called!…

All in our week

This week is another that has flown by. With me meaning to wrote long and wordy blog entries full of thought provoking insights on life and witty musings on life. Quite obviously this isn’t that post, it’s likely to be a dry photo predominant post with no wit to speak of and even less insight….

We have been fighting colds and coughs recently, quite probably a side effect of the local public pool. Moo is doing better than me but is still a bit fragile at times. Could be her age tho! Ha. I have found myself relying on a fair bit of iPad and dvd entertainment, simultaneously enjoying the…

Days of Grace

I am discovering every day with a toddler is an adventure. Not the ‘Exploring Disneyland Florida’ type of adventure either. The swing on a 25kg backpack, jump on a crowded bus next to locals, goats and chickens, end up sitting on the floor – for 16 hours. Get lost, have stuff stolen. Climb a huge mountain, in…

This weekend it rained, and rained, and rained, and just for fun, it rained some more, right into Monday too. Saturday we went into the city to get our new glasses, run errands and pop to the market. By the afternoon the rain has started so after a abortive attempt to get a coffee (all…

A few little images from our weekend. Hubby at the start of his half marathon, he come in on his target time sub 1.35 (1.34.44) but rolled his ankle at 19km so looked pretty grim coming over the finish line! Said it was good though, rather windy and warmer than anticipated. Nim and I had…

Achieving

I don’t write about hubby much on these pages, he has his own place to put his words and thoughts (when he finishes building it) but sometimes he deserves a mention. Mostly he gets mentioned for his great pressie buying skills, or the fact Moose is a total daddy’s girl, or because he has bought/build/made/said/done…
