It is really hard to get excited about a week under canvas when you are packing the car in the bloody rain. Just can't get myself excited about the whole thing. No Totaranui this year so the sun is not a sure thing. Lake Rotoiti will be lovely but not so much if the sun ain't shining. As I am finishing the clothes packing I have American Idol on and I just want to say WHAT THE F%&* is VICTORIA BECKHAM doing on the show?
1. She can't sing
2. She is really thick/vacuous/dense
3. She is too thin and makes my eyes hurt
She knows nothing about music....NOTHING. All she has said all night is 'you look lovely', 'I love your jeans and your hair' DUH! Honestly, I have never had an opinion about her other than TOO THIN and very very VAIN, however now as you can tell, I have a lot to say about her.
So, yeah, not around for a week or so. HAve fun without me. Ha ha.

I have started another blog. It is about random things from the visual world and it is where I am going to reveal my intense interest in every tiny detail of design in our next house plus other interesting things I find around the place. Click on the title of this post (above)and you will find it. I hope you enjoy it. I am still building it and trying to decide on the look and feel so I think it will evolve. Hope you like it

This is a sneaky holiday post from the bach using Jonty's new HP mini. So far eating too much chocolate and swimming for hours on end. Man it is hot and even at this time of the night there are at least 20 surfers still out there. The last two nights have seen a huge impressive swell coming in from the north. Nic has had two fab says on his boogie board and also had his first surfing lesson with Jonty. I think he stood on the board for about 1 second. I was impressed. This morning we started out with a 2 hour round trip walk up to the trig station at the top of the hill as it was cool and windy but by lunch the beach had started filling up and the surf was cranking. We pottered around int he surf until the family arrived for a bbq dinner. Delish. Julian and I polished off a nice bottle of wine and the night turned very mellow. Almost bed time.
