Netball Saturday

A gorgeous sunny Saturday afternoon and we head to the courts, they had an awesome game winning 12-4.
Josh is off tramping with scouts this weekend, his mission to seek signs of volcanic activity !  Tongariro is having signs of unrest, early days but it has been rather sleepy for 115 year, so about time we had some excitment with volcanoes, after all NZ has kind of done earthquakes the last two years!
I am sure he will be having lots of fun on the 4 hr tramp to the hut, stay there overnight and then back home again tomorrow.

Snail pace

Progress is still being made, but at a snails pace.......  The curtains have now had to be postponed, as we are still waiting on decorator to finish wallpapering.  But the main feature wall is done and one of the other walls in the textured plain colour paper.

Saffron and JOsh have been practicing guitar today, and the chess set is out and the girls learning and Josh just getting caned (#3) by his mum!

Revovation update

Its been slow progress, the decorators have been in sparodically and this is delaying some aspects.  We are also waiting on the flooring, still havn't got a date for that!  They money is flying out the door though!!!!
The roof replacement has also started in earnest, chimney goes today!  The bomb site continues!!!  The exterior is too damp to pain till the weather warms up. The weather has been cool clear days, and the gorgeous flowers are out, hence the sneaky photo at the bottom!

Holiday activities

Between the rain and a stack of DVD's we did have a crafty morning, making cheesy vegimite bread rools and rainbow ribbon bean bags.  A fortuatuse short supply of split peas led to a bike and scooter outing round to NW before it started to rain again!
