At the end of last week I received a gorgeous, squishy parcel of yarn, from up the road, ha ha, in Napier from Skeinz. They have recently relocated and I couldn't resist checking out their relocation sale. I can't wait to go and visit their new shop, it looks wonderful, and to see all of the gorgeous NZ yarn they stock.
Most of this yarn is intended for gift knitting, including several How Quiet Hat and mitts sets. This lovely pattern is by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade and is from the 2018 Knitvent series.
Cadbury released this limited edition chocolate last week and we gave it a try - pineapple lumps are a kiwi favourite. We gave it a thumbs up!
Miss H has been an extremely busy girl of late. She auditioned for her school's production show and was given a part in her class's version of Cinderella - Boogierella. Hannah's whole school performed in the show, 335 children, and they did 3 shows for the community last week. A great time commitment for the teachers, helpers and children, it was a wonderful show, great music and lots of laughs, they all did so well.
Hannah also recently competed in her school's annual cross country race and because of her placing, she was then selected for the inter school cross country race, featuring students from other schools in our community.
It's nearing the time of the year for her dancing exams, they are at the end of the month, so Hannah had a full on weekend of mock exams for jazz, tap and ballet.
She absolutely loves her dancing classes this year.
This week, she was away on her school camp for three days, and all the kids had a blast - mud run, raft building, bush walks, toasting marshmellows. It sounds like they had an awesome time.
We've enjoyed some sunny spring weather this week and I have two vases of beautiful spring flowers on my desk at work - daffodils and freesias, so pretty and such a lovely scent.
Being Downton Abbey fans from way back, the movie was so good. The costumes and jewellery were amazing, and we all enjoyed it. Are you a Downton Abbey fan?
See you soon xx
