It's the school holidays here at the moment, and it's been raining quite a bit... so just imagine 6 people squashed in a smallish house along with a cat and dog and 4 rats.
It's been pretty rad, but we've also had our fair share squabbles and cabin fever as well.
Even Barney the cat has been struggling to get a bit of peace and quiet...
Thankfully, the rain has eased, the lawns have now been mowed, and I no longer fear losing a child in our 'thigh high' lawn as they go out to play.
Although a back shed clean out did bring other discoveries...
Also, hubby and I are off to Brisbane next weekend - all by ourselves!! Woohoo!! It's going to be my first time in Oz. Mega thanks to the amazing people who shouted us our plane tickets (you know who you are ;) and to our parents for minding our beautiful kiddies and menagerie of animals while we are gone.
We are going to catch up with family, friends, attend an amazing conference and hubby will be preaching at a fabulous church over there too. Really looking forward to it (and also secretly hoping I can check out the infamous IKEA while we are there as well).
We might even go out and about in matching checkered tops...
Loved catching up with some of the Whangarei bloggers today AND the amazing Stella from The Golden Adventures of a very dark horse. She's such a sweetie.
Anyway, this was just a super quick check in to say hi!
p.s. Look at what Liz gave me from her thrifting finds today!! Love!
Peace out (said in a Kip accent)
