Living with Steve can have it's moments....  both good and bad annoying.

ABOVE:  the whiteboard ... with his check box.  Every time I eat something he deems 'naughty' he's adding minutes, and they have to be exercise minutes used up by Sunday every week!  Cheeky little bugger.

ABOVE:  MY NEW DESKTOP background.  Hmmmm... can you tell I have a young, annoying man in the house?  Pffffft.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Lacy, she is 31 today.  Emily decided she didn't want to share her birthday with her. 

Today:  got a few jobs I want done around the house and some sewing needs to be done too.


Oh... we are going down to Hamilton tonight so Stew, Steve and the kids can see Emily.... and me of course!   I already miss holding her.

BLONDIE:  NO!  I ain't eaten 20 naughty things!  I ate a pie... and Steve thought it was worth 20 minutes on the treadmill or crosstrainer.  *sniff*

Steve and I went out and had morning tea with Stew, then wandered around DressMart in Onehunga... got some nice sensible knickers for Amanda to wear right now... she usually wears thongs and they certainly ain't quite 'right' for now!

ABOVE: Precious, brand spanking new ... and NOT crying at her Grandma.  

ANOTHER DREADFUL DAY IN CHRISTCHURCH... our southern city has suffered another devestating earthquake at midday today... only 5 months after the last one... this one today has done much more damage and there have been fatalities,  unlike the earlier one.  A sad day for many, many New Zealanders.

End of Day:  we went down to Hamilton this evening and visited Amanda, Andrew and baby Emily.  They are doing well... and Emily is still adorable... of course!  lol
DIET: so-so
nite nite.

    That is a brilliant idea! Eat something naughty, then exercise to pay for it.(common sense I know, but it sounds like a good idea when you put it that way.) I know I'd be eating good to get out of exercising. Congratulations grandma! WOMBAT

  7. Haha I have just noticed in the "naughty box" you have eaten 20 NORTY things!!!!!!!!!1 ummmmmmmmmm

  8. AWWWHHH! I have been out of commission for a week now. Looks like I am coming back just in time to see one of the most beautiful Grandmaws with a brand new beautiful grandbaby! Congrats to all of you!

  9. I just heard about the earthquake and came straight to you blog to see if you and your family were okay. Glad you're okay but what a sad day. Sending prayers to those impacted.

  10. PS Your grandbaby is absolutely gorgeous.
    xo jj

  11. awwwww so new!!!!


  12. Steve sounds like a trip and a hlf. I was going to ask if you are alright, but I see that Christchurch is on the South Island, and you are on the N. Island. I am so sorry, as I know how hard it must be for you all.

  13. We all need a Steve around. Last nite I ate an ice-cream and no one said anything. And I'm glad you're safe.

  14. I think you obviously don't give Steve enough whoopins!

    Could you feel the quake where you were?

  15. Same as Joanna. It's 7am and I just heard about earthquake. Came to see that you are okay. Phew. So happy you are okay.

  16. I just read about the earthquake, sounds horrible :(

  17. I was worried about you when I hear about the earthquake this am!

    Beautiful baby!

  18. Congrats! You're a grandmom again. I bet you can't wait until the baby moves in.
