Sandra arrived in REAL STYLE last night! See:
She has a friend who travels the length of the North Island 3 times a week... so she just jumped on his truck yesterday and cadged a ride! It was VERY EASY to see them coming up the road! LOL

It looks like a great way to travel for free if ya ask me.

Today: I will probably take Sandra to the mall... have lunch out and about... and I MUST do some shopping!

YES I MUST! It's Brylee's 9th Birthday tomorrow and I haven't done any shopping for it yet! YIKES....


OK.. this is how it will work:

I am going to add one thing to the giveaway every day until the 10th of October, that is the 3rd Year Anniversary of me becoming a BLOGGER. You can enter on each and every day if you wish, that way you will end up with *10* chances to win everything!

If you 'advertise' my GIVEAWAY on your blog.. that will get you another entry... you will need to let me know if you do this... but you only need to do that once OK?

If you are not a 'Follower' and become one, that will get you ANOTHER chance to win! But again, you will need to let me know in a comment that you have become a follower!

I will draw the winner (only one!) on the 12th of October, that gives everyone on the other side of the world time to enter!

DAY ONE: this cute New Zealand carry bag :

PHEW! That took some time to set up! and NO .. I did not make that bag.

ONWARD with the day....

So far we have been out and about to the mall, had lunch, kids played with big balls (more on that tomorrow).... and now we are just killing time till Sandra catches a train to where she wants to go tonight.... and hopefully she will not get lost and we will find her at the train station again.....later on tonight.

End of day: I'm tired! Having a visitor all day... is tiring! I have had to talk... all day! LOL... and to think I was grizzling about being lonely! It's lovely having Sandra here though... and she's going to be here for a few more days yet! All good. nite nite.
