This weekend was Labour Day weekend which normally signals Summer here in NZ... and it appeared right on time the weather was glorious and I have my first bit of colour, not looking quite so pale and pastie now, the 3/4 pants have come out of the wardrobe and also short sleeve tops, it is also lovely to be barefoot.
I spent most of the time with my Daughter and her family at their caravan doing absolutely nothing, well I did do a few bits of stitching. Oh! and we did take a half hour walk along the beach so the boys could paddle which of course ended up being a complete soaking in their clothes.
Now today I have to catch up at home, you know washing and cleaning and the sun has bought out the weeds in the garden so have managed a couple of hours trying to get rid of them.
I also deserve an award as I went swimming this morning at 8am, then treated myself to breakfast at a lovely French Cafe we have in Rotorua, they cook poached eggs like no one else.
Stay a while and browse I chat about all nature of things mainly quilting and embroidery,but also life around us the fields, the flowers and family
Copying things from my blog
I am quite happy for people to use anything that I publish on my blog, if you wish to copy that is just great by me, I would treat that as a compliment, if it goes to a good cause then that is a double bonus.
Me. I am 70 yrs young, I finally went to university when I was in my 40's and received my diploma the same year as my daughter received hers. So there was life in the old gal.
I have been a follower and followed my then husband around the world, he working and me..I had a wonderful time and would not have changed a thing the experiences are 100 fold, I really must get around to writing a book. We have lived in France, USA, UK, Spain, Kuwait, Jordan, Philippines, China, Bahrain, Dubai and NZ to name but a few.
My nomadic life began in 1977 when my then husband was offered a job in Kuwait / Dubai Our wanderings continued and finally we ended up again in Dubai in 2006/9.. 30yrs later, so life has been in a full circle.
Stitching and Quilting kept me sane in all these years and are now my best friends. 2013 now sees me at home in New Zealand with my children and grand children and my last move from these shores. Vacations apart of course.
