AWWWW BYE BYE SANDRA, AND DAY 4 OF GIVEAWAY:

DAY FOUR OF THE GIVEAWAY:


ABOVE: today I am adding this neat dish! I made it a few years ago... but have never used it. Don't forget to LEAVE A COMMENT to be in to win EVERYTHING!!! (that is 10 days worth of Prizes!) How awesome is that then???

This morning we are taking Sandra to the bus stop to catch a bus back to Palmerston North... 12 hours on a bus!!! Rather her than me. It has been so lovely to have her to stay... she has been a really lovely visitor.

I am hoping to go down to Palmy before Christmas to catch up with our two youngest boys and my girlfriends.

ONWARD with today.... Sandra got away fine... she has to catch a train, to catch a bus.. to backtrack to her starting point ...to catch the 'right' bus.... so weird! Oh well... she's safely on her way home now.

We have done the housework... and plan on having a nice quiet day.

At some stage today I hope to catch up on some blog reading/commenting!



OH DEAR!!! I just got a text from Sandra.... it's snowing so bad they have closed the Desert Road... so her bus had to take the long way around the mountain... through National Park... AND NOW HER BUS IS STUCK IN THE SNOW!!! I am sure they will all be OK, and get home safe EVENTUALLY! Man oh man am I glad I don't have to cross that road nowdays!

Lacy and her mate 'CC' went up NORTH this weekend to visit Tim, her Fiance'... he moved up there about 2 weeks ago. Lacy is going to move up there to be with him in another 2 weeks. On their way back to Tauranga tonight they stopped in for dinner.


ABOVE: Lacy enjoying home cooked Roast Beef and veges... I'm happy to say Stew cooked it! I had a 'bitch' yesterday about how he never cooks anymore.... so now I am insisting he cooks at least ONCE on the weekend to give me a break. WORKS FOR ME!

End of Day: sheesh... I have been making spelling mistakes left right and centre! I been having a drinkee or three! LOL... thank god for Spell check eh? LOL..... nite nite. Oh and Sandra still isn't home! Poor girl.

Edit: Sandra finally got home safely!

  9. What a beautiful dish - I can't believe you haven't used it! It's gorgeous!!

    I hope Anne gets back safely. It's a rotten day here in Christchurch - sunny (yet cold) one minute and hailing or pouring with rain the next. I'm so confused about what to do - lol. Just when I think I can potter in the garden - down comes more hail!
