Queen Elizabeth Park - Kapiti Coast
After another fast week - where are they going? we spent the weekend getting natural wool insulation in our loft - can you believe there was no insulation at all - combine that with a tin roof - no wonder we were warm at night in the summer!!!! We discovered another Regional Park - Queen Elizabeth park on the Kapiti Coast. Great views, bird life - including a Buzzard - beach and walks! We did a northern loop along the coast and back along the inland track - about 3.3kms in total. There was a lovely fresh breeze which cooled the warm day!
The Kittens are still growing well and are now allowed outside to run riot! We also discovered a nice garden center and my garden has now been added too! 2 Lime bushes, 1 Blueberry bush, various grasses and some pretty pink and red perennials for the retaining wall planting - just have to work on removing more of the Ivy now! Getting a Mandarin bush is another project!
Oh well Monday tomorrow - back to another week of work and India starts Morning Kindy tomorrow 2. She is very excited and I think she may be disappointed as she thinks it will be like Josh's school and she will learn to read, write and have homework. I will try and get a picture of her with her Charlie and Lola rucksac in the morning! Another week and a half before Josh goes back on the 7th Feb. Then Andy's Birthday the week after! Before I know it Easter will be upon us and we will be hunting nice cadburys chocolate eggs - Josh has already complained that everything is filed with marshmallow as the marshmallow filled eggs are now in the shops!
