Good Intentions

I was so full of good intentions for the school holidays. However, not only have those two weeks gone by, but it is now Saturday afternoon following the first week back at school! To be fair, I did actually get a lot done. The problem is that I didn’t spend much time at all catching… Continue reading Good Intentions

Moving Forward

It may not be full steam ahead, but I am moving forward. In January 2018 I published the post “Changes Afoot”. I wrote this after changing to WordPress as my hosting provider. The change was actually made in December 2017, so it is not too far off two years ago. When I changed over I… Continue reading Moving Forward

Whoops – There Was A Wool Store!

It was good to have a break away for a few days last week. The trip up was a bit wet in places, but not too bad. Coming back home was another story, however.

South Island Trip (the final leg) – Heading Home

It is always hard saying goodbye to your children and their families. All too soon it was time to start heading home. It was a little easier for me this time, though, as I knew I would be back down in six weeks. We headed north through Dunedin and stopped for a lovely leisurely lunch… Continue reading South Island Trip (the final leg) – Heading Home

South Island Trip (part two)

Gosh, it’s now over a month since we got back from our South Island trip! No wonder I’m struggling a bit to remember what I need to write down. To be fair, there has been, and continues to be, quite a lot going on. The most important thing hanging over me at the moment is… Continue reading South Island Trip (part two)

South Island Trip (part one)

You may have noticed that I have been very quiet for the last three weeks. We were lucky enough to get away for a two week road trip around our lovely South Island. I can’t believe that it is actually a whole week since we got back! While we were away we often had limited… Continue reading South Island Trip (part one)

Kia Kaha Christchurch

You may have heard of the tragedy which has struck New Zealand. Two days ago, early in the afternoon of Friday March 15th, a gunman opened fire on Muslim worshipers who were praying in one of the central city mosques in Christchurch. He then drove to another mosque close by and shot more people who… Continue reading Kia Kaha Christchurch
