Well, while I'm not that keen to be on the road on a holiday weekend, we are heading down to Hamilton for the day.
Steve and Bex have a friend's birthday party to attend, so we are going to meet them down there for a family lunch.
Stew, Brylee, Griffin, Keera and I will then head out to the Cemetery to visit Stew's Mum and Dad's grave, and make sure their headstone is all tidy.
After that we might do some shopping, I certainly want to visit the Hamilton Spotlight shop. Who knows, they might have some different wools/fabric? Oh, and I hope we can visit the Patchwork shop at Gordonton too!
Even if I 'just look'... I don't have to purchase every time I visit a fabric shop I suppose.
It's not like I don't have a fairly healthy 'stash' of fabric.
I'm hoping the next block I make is lovely, cos I've now done a couple that sucked.
HI! We have had a really lovely day out in Hamilton. Lunch at Chartwell Square, some shopping, spending time with the kids.
The roads were very busy, but not too many traffic jams to contend with.
I didn't take any photos as the weather was rather crappy.
Once home again, we had a surprise at our 'back door'...
I am going to take photos of my knitted blocks and type out their instructions... then I will have them on hand for the next time I want to knit blocks... after I've done my secret project.
ABOVE: My wool 'stash'! I got about 8 balls of wool at Spotlight in Hamilton today. It was all 40% off. SCORE!
Now... time to have dinner, and relax for a while.
Dinner was Beef Spare Ribs cooked in a Sticky Rib Marinade, and we had potato wedges with them. It was delicious.
ANON: No name? Come on, I'd like to know who I'm thanking while I'm eating a chocolate egg!
I've plugged in me new printer and even printed a couple of photos. It works SO FAST! Literally in a couple of seconds the photo is printed.
Now I can send my Mum photos of the family.
End of Day: well a really cool day. Nice to leave Auckland for the day and do a little shopping too.
