YES!! you did read that right ... we are still in Rotorua and we are so pleased we decided to stay at home.
The rain is still falling that is now 4 days of continuous showers and today torrential rain..
But guess what we did today... no you won't be able to so I will tell you.
We drove to Whakatane and Ohope Beach at 2pm this afternoon we were going a little stir crazy in the house and needed some fresh air... I suggested it just to go out may be just a drive there and back. We stopped for a late lunch at Julian's Berry Farm wee hee !! to die for... then a fresh strawberry frozen yogurt ... then on to the beach, the wind was blowing and the rain was really coming down
" How about a walk on the sand " said I. Paul thought I was off my rocker, then Penny agreed to come with me. So Paul stayed in the car and we headed off along the sand collecting shells ... in fact the wind dropped once we were on the sand and it was a really great stroll we took, we got wet ...so .. our skin is water proof, and I stood to close to the incoming tide and got wet, up past my knees.
But it was just like being kids again together.
The flooding on the way back was beginning to show and the drains were over flowing... hopefully it will ease tonight .. although the weatherman says not before Wednesday or Thursday ... Oh help!!.
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.
