before and after

Check out our paint job. What a difference. What a slum our house was. Lovely new weatherboards and ingenious shingles made by my dad.

Back to the beach

Well, I said I wasn't going to just bang on about beaches but I just can't help it. Last Sunday was an amazing day at Taylors. The water was calm and there was no wind. It was just like Totaranui and the water was warmer. We took the kayak and invited Paulette and Jonty to join us. My folks turned up too. What an amazing day...we were there for hours and had to drag ourselves home at tea time. It was also 'K' day too...major surf life saving event so all of Jonty's family were around the place too. We all spent hours in the water and barely had time to stop for lunch.

Here are some pics...

It has been a whole year...

since I started this little blog and checking in to a few months it looks like I have had a pretty good year. It was always meant to be a blog celebrating the good things in my life, reminding myself and sharing with others the happy, fun and inspirational. Having had some very flat and hard months I have always found something to celebrate or enjoy during those times. Having the blog has reminded me to look around.

Embarking on another year, I am keen to reflect some movement or growth in our life and not just replicate another year of beach and bike adventures. With Nicholas moving in to a new phase of his life, our world will change as we find ways to stimulate him and keep his world increasing.

I am off to the Gold Coast for work this week so there might be some interesting things to report on my return. I know I haven't been doing links and interesting things lately because I have been exhausted and my brain is full. However, after a lovely warm holiday in Able Tasman I am feeling more inspired and refreshed. I hope that is reflected in the pages of the blog.

Not sure what is in store this year but I am looking forward to moving on a bit. Some things I thought I might do
more art projects
more time with my friends whom I love
new experiences with Nicholas
save some money
finish our house improvements

that'll do... hope you will stay tuned
