Well, my summer holidays have nearly come to an end, its back to work on Monday for me. I can't believe how quickly this time off has whizzed on by, but it always does. Hannah and I have just returned home from a little time away staying with our relatives in Palmerston North. Its a little trip we take every year at this time. We spent our time catching up, visiting local parks and pools, and of course, shopping! Lots and lots of sales on at the moment. But of course it was nice to get home, and back to DH, after being away for five days.
During one of our visits to the park, I found Hannah hiding out in the flower garden, such vibrant colours :)
Glenn has been busy during his break and has been working on a new project, he's building us a green house on our back deck so we'll be able to grow our own vegetable and plant seedlings. I can't wait until its done to get some seedlings underway.
I mentionned in a previous post that I'd treated myself before Christmas to a few new goodies. I bought these JBW Design patterns to stitch this year:
Two new books, both of these I've read during my holidays - the Language of Flowers would be my favourite book that I read during 2012! Excellent! I've done alot of reading over the past few weeks - I'm onto my 5th book for the break.
I also picked up this crochet book, which I'm sure will come in handy this year as I'd like to extend my crocheting skills, lol.
I was very excited to find a NZ stockist for the Mollie Makes magazine recently - two issues arrived while I was away so I've been enjoying reading these over breakfast the past two mornings. Such fun projects to do!
That's the end of my catch up for this time. I'm off now to make a birthday cake for my Dad, who is 60 today. We're having a family bbq to celebrate tonight - can't wait!
Until next time, thanks for stopping by, see you soon x
