Utter Randomness...

By PaisleyJade - Monday, January 09, 2012

We're in cruise mode here at the moment... trying to have some family holiday time while also trying to get our house painted.  We always planned to get it done this Summer, but hello... it's pretty hard to paint your house when it's constantly raining!

Trying to paint over the previous colour: ghastly orange

So yeah, just doing the normal Kiwi things...

Like BBQs with family,

Buying up all the kid's school stationery for school this year.  Four kids = mega bucks worth of stationery!

Reading and playing games... family favourite at the moment would have to be Pictureka (cause all 6 of us can play it!).

And also, doing things like wearing gumboots while also wearing togs and jumping over the sprinkler.

Fun times.  Just your normal, everyday Summer here in The Land of the Long White Cloud.
