AUCKLAND BOUND...

Well we are heading off fairly early this morning for Auckland.
It was going to be a visit and shopping trip, but Bex needs some urgent dental treatment, so I will be taking her to the dentist and getting her home again once she's been seen to.

Brylee and Griffin will be babysitting the little kids while we are out.

As that won't take all day, I am sure I will be able to get to my favourite shops while up there.  *smiles*

The little bunny I made yesterday was annoying me, his ears just would not sit right, so last night I made another one to see if I could adjust the ears.  Same result.  So I had to take the ears off and make them smaller so they would not flop so much.



ABOVE:  They actually stay up now, which is a relief.  Nothing make me madder than something that doesn't work! OH, and I stayed up late making a third one to see how long it would take from start to finish, now that I know what I'm doing!  2 hours exactly to make one.

And that's about all I have for now... I will try to update during the day... it's going to be lovely to see our Miss Muppet and the boys again.

ONWARD...

Safely in Auckland.
Stopped in at Manukau Spotlight for some white felt for bunny ear dots. OMG that shop is immaculate compared to the dismal disarray in the Hamilton store!

6.37 pm:  And we just got home safely after a lovely day in Auckland.

Bex's dental appointment went as expected, she threw up mid way through!  At least she warned them it would happen!  lol

She had made a delicious banana and chocolate chip cake, which we all managed to devour!

I got the gardening bug and decided to trim a few things in her garden, it made a huge difference! Very proud of my efforts.  I wish I'd thought to take before and after photos!  It made such a difference to one area of the garden, once I'd cut and pulled out all the creeping vines.

I managed to pop into Spotlight twice at the end of the day, last time on our way home.

That shop makes Hamilton look so drab and dreary:


ABOVE:  Love Spotlight, Manukau!  The people who work there are always so happy and smiley too.  

The drive home took about 30 minutes longer than normal due to rush hour traffic.  But it was OK, I expected that.

Home now, and we beat Stew home by 15 minutes, he works in Rotorua on a Tuesday.

Dinner will be sausages and I don't know, something quick and easy.  I'm a bit head achy after driving and the heat of the day.

Ikkk, feeling rather exhausted now.  I wanted to do quite a bit this evening in the sewing room , but have done NOTHING!  Too tired.
So on that note, I'm off to bed.

  1. You could put a light iron on stiffening in the ears? They're so cut.
