Well... this morning is going to be a bit busy.
First up, get the kids to school/kindy. Then take my Mum, sister and Brylee into Hamilton so they can get a hire car and go do their own thing for the day.
Then I will be coming home and getting all the washing done, tidy the house and so on.
So, I won't have much time right now to download all the photos and put some on here.
Not that I took many photos! Just a few of Mike and the mountains.
But, I will get around to them a bit later.
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE HOW OUR SON MIKE LOOKS NOW!
11.37 am: And I've finally got home after taking Mum, Lorraine and Brylee into Hamilton to pick up a hire car.
They have now left for Tokoroa, where Mum will be getting new flowers for our family graves and visiting a friend.
I am home alone... about to hang out a huge amount of washing.
ABOVE: Mike greeting his Dad, after not having seen him in over 3 years!
See the BEARD!!!
ABOVE: Hugs for his Dad.
ABOVE: Hmmmm.... what's under that beanie???
ABOVE: Brylee's reaction!
ABOVE: The BIG REVEAL !!!!!!! He looks a bit like a Viking?
NONE of us like the hair... but it's his hair.... and he can have it any way he wants of course. No hating on my boy.. OK?
ABOVE: We thought Griffin looked taller, but in hindsight, Mike has a tiny edge on him... even though Griffin's shoulders are higher. They are built differently... so Griffin appears taller. I think in another 6 months Griffin will surpass his Uncle Mike and catch up to Stew!
ABOVE: Mike and his Grandma. He looks way better without the beanie and without his hair out!
ABOVE: Russell and Mike, my eldest and youngest sons. Griffin is my youngest 'bonus' son.
ABOVE: Stew and I with our son Mike. We love him no matter how his hair looks, no matter how long the beard grows! *laughing*
ABOVE: Fresh snow on Mount Ruapehu...
ABOVE: And Mount Tongariro.
There was actually even more on Thursday when we travelled down to Palmerston North.
It was bloody cold too I might add.
ABOVE: Mum and Dante last night.
ABOVE: Me with Chris D and Sandra. It was lovely to catch up with them... I miss them dreadfully.
Now, I better get on with the freakin' washing.
Well... I've been busy as!
Masses of washing done, housework, tidying up.
I'm off to Weight Watchers shortly, leaving Griffin to mind Keera as the family isn't home yet.
I've got pork belly roasting in the oven for dinner... should be good!
Dinner was wonderful... both Mum and my sister thought it was anyway.
I LOST 3.8 kilos this week!
I wasn't even trying. I'm sure dropping the medication has helped tremendously.
Time for signing off now.
