It has been forever since I've shared a 'Things I've Loved Lately' post or aka 'What's been happening lately post'.

Ever since Instagram has arrived, Blogging has taken a back seat, apart from being the perfect place to post Renovation stories. But I'm determined to keep this digital diary semi updated, as I love looking back later at the highlights of life. 

So here are a few things that have been happening lately - like over the last part of this year!  Quick fire version because I haven't done this in a long while! 

Puzzle mania... and also discovering that good quality puzzles can be held up! 

Vegan cooking! I'm not plant based or vegan, but a friend gave my husband the most delicious cook book for Christmas that I've had heaps of fun experimenting with. My favourite have been trying the different curries! 

Walking with friends! Weekly fun... with a little bit of sweat. 

Mega McDonald's family meal to celebrate a family birthday. 

Captain Haddock aka Archi arrived, our daughter's Blue Tongue Lizard. 

And now a few months on he looks like this...

We had the best season hosting church in our home and other homes throughout our city. 

Mykah bought his first car! 

We got to see many of our gorgeous friends and family finally after being separated for so long with covid lockdowns! 

And church has been amazing as always!

We replaced our old leaky and rusty roof (cha ching)...

And have been invited to some great parties!

My and Symon had the sweetest little road trip away to Auckland for our 26th Wedding anniversary earlier this year! So much fun exploring the city and finding great cafes and food places! 

The annual Oscar watch party happened... And boy, what a watch it was. Wow. Just got to say, big shout out to Coda taking out so many awards! Such a great film. 

Wedding snaps with Symon - he officiated a wedding recently, so I had to grab some photos while we were dressed up. 

Just some photos of our four cats. Just for fun. 

We also had a murder mystery party to celebrate Monique's birthday earlier in the year! It was so much fun. 

Mother's Day celebrations! I got the privilege of talking to these amazing girls on Mother's Day as they shared their stories. There were a lot of tears and laughs! You can watch it here

Birthday celebrations for our girl turning 18 happened!!

We celebrated Monique's recent course completion (Certificate in Christian Ministry)! 

And I'm so happy my girls have all learnt to crochet! 

We also loved celebrating our eldest's birthday too! 

Last photo dumb below, then I'm gong to try so hard to keep this space updated more often!!

So thankful for so much!!
