ABOVE: here's me wearing my gorgeous new necklace! It is a PERFECT match with my earrings! I am in love with it! I can see me wearing it EVERY DAY.

Today we are going to Hamilton to see our Grandson Joel (oh yeah, AND his family)... cos it's his birthday, he is 6. Hopefully we will see Kelly and family too.

And here's hoping it isn't a dreadful wet day.

ABOVE: Jackie baking in my kitchen last night.. it was weird having someone else cooking in my kitchen! But...

ABOVE: ... the dessert she made was super yummy. Her hubby, Stew and I all had seconds.... poor Jackie wanted more too... but she was too late. lol

Our trip to Hamilton went well. It was a crap weather day as we expected... rain on/off all day... and when it did rain... it absolutely pissed down! Torrential!

I got a couple of photos of the flooded Waikato River:

ABOVE: The river is SUPPOSED to be beyond those trees in the distance!

ABOVE: Amanda eating cake. I did take some photos of the birthday boy and his mates.... but they all came out blurry... the little shits kept moving! Oh well, next time.
My daughters loved my new necklace too... Amanda tried to pinch it... nah aaa... ain't gunna happen!

End of Day: time to have dinner then pack Brylee's bags for her school trip tomorrow! Sheesh, I hope the weather picks up for them. It sure won't be much fun if it rains all the time. nite nite.
