Well,it's been a while!I am now back in Oz(almost a week-where does the time go?) after having spent 2 weeks in NZ-was meant to be a week,but decided to stay another week for various reasons & was glad to have the extra time.Not least of all as Mum ended up in hospital with a severe lung infection,but thankfully is now on the mend.Also we were able to have darling little Casper for 24 hours,which was an absolute joy.I got to spend some time with my sister Jo,nieces Jenny and Fran & great nieces & nephew as well,which was lovely, & a little more time for catching up with friends.And of course more time with my dear boys.
It was lovely to stay & spend time with Mum & Dad,& was so pleased to see Dad recovering well from his heart surgery.It is a blessing to have them as parents.
This little man is a treasure too.
Love them all to bits & feel so torn at times between being home in NZ & here- makes time spent together all the more special.
I found a few material treasures while home too....
Also in Sumner visited this shop-still my favourite shop ever I think.
Complete with these....
Since coming home,I have found these....
A wooden jig-saw puzzle
Two old woollen blankets-the pink & blue for chopping up for craft(watch this space) & the other for keeping as it is truly lovely,its colours so rich(photos don't really do it justice)
Plus more-have yet to take photos....next time.
I have also been making these....
Apricot & walnut muffins-yummyyy!
Was meant to be doing the craft market on Saturday,but due to no-one being able to swap a shift with me I have to work.Nevermind-have plenty of time to get lots together before the next one!And am doing the flea market on Sunday,which means just one early morning!
