Saffron's trapped finger she did Saturday night!

Winter Sun

A gorgeous sunny winter day - time to blow away the cobwebs and jet lag and head for the beach. We headed up the Kapiti coast again with Molly and enjoyed the sunshine chasing sea gulls, getting wet and thinking its summer! yes they wanted ice creams too... brghhhhh....

Saffron's photo taking was not bad, I am finally in front of the lens not behind!!! But I did get a gorgeous pic of a spiral shell.... and 3 monkeys we found! Hopefully we will all sleep well tonight.

Sunshine through the freezing fog....

after a few mornings of -2.3 and -2.7 degrees it was slightly warmer today, the sun soon burned through the heavy fog. We had plenty of visitors in the garden, as well as some locals!

School production

India and Saffron both finished the second school term with 3 showings of the junior school production. Saffron had a staring role in the opening act and led her class out to do their song. India was one of the dancers for her class. They were both real stars.

We are now into the school holidays and typically they are wet! They are all booked into holiday club one day a week and Catherine 2 days and one day each with both mum and dad! plenty of scrap paper from work and paper airplane making! baking and TV!!!
