Today is a fresh start.
I'm going to enjoy those around me, and move on with living LIFE for me and Stew.
This little man is what makes me smile EVERY SINGLE DAY, and I am so thankful for having him in our lives.
ABOVE: In his Mummy's glasses. He looks so adorable!
Today: the weather is utter crap, wind and rain, and FREEZING.
I feel so sorry for Griffin on his school camp. It does my head in knowing that a good proportion of the camp activities will NOT be experienced due to the dreadful weather.
Brylee had the same thing happen on her senior year camp too.
I hope he's not getting too wet or cold, and they feed him plenty. If he's hungry he's more grumpy than me!
Because Bex's brother Matt has not been to Auckland before, I am taking him for a jaunt over the harbour bridge today, and we will have lunch in Devonport. If the weather eases at all we will then go up Mt Victoria so Matt can see the view of the city.
Oh and Bex and I want to visit the local fabric and wool shops too. That's a given!
Matt can push Dante in the pushchair and do the 'bag boy' stuff! (as in, he gets to carry our bags!)
Right, better get moving...
Our new fridge just arrived! Yaaa... I will sort it out later.
The weather has OMG taken a complete 180! It's sunshine all over the place. Excellent.
Still freezing though... but that's OK, it helps with the hot flushes.
We have had the most lovely day! While the weather has been a bit hit 'n' miss, with frequent heavy showers, we've managed to dodge most of them.
ABOVE: Behind Matt is Rangitoto Island, and behind that is Mototapu Island, where Griffin is.
ABOVE: All those 'mushrooms' cover ventilation shafts from all the tunnels under Mt Victoria. Years ago they were used by the military.
Dante's stance. NO, I do not want to go back to the car.
Bex's stance. Dammit child, come on!
He just loved being up there running around.
ABOVE: Yes I got some fat quarters at Cushla's Fabric shop! And I used up all the spaces on their 'Loyalty Card' so next time I go I get a nice little discount on my next purchase. SCORE!
After our jaunt in Devonport I took them to Mission Bay for an ice cream at Movenpick.
Matt had never had a Movenpick ice cream EVER!
ABOVE: It would be safe to say he LOVED it! We all did.
After that, we came home ... and now I'm going to get my new fridge into my kitchen.... YAAAaaaa.
How weird is it with only two posts on my blog? It's creeping me out... I might have to put them back soon, even if that means some people who I DREAD seeing my blog/family life can see it.
End of Day: such a good day, I thoroughly enjoyed getting out and about and just having nothing to do but be with family.
Wow, it's 11.35 pm and we are having a massive hail storm! Talk about LOUD!
Oh well... I'm off to bed and looking forward to tomorrow.
