...and I'm going to !

Brylee and Griffin don't have to be anywhere, I don't have to go out... so we will have a nice quiet day right here at home.

I am really looking forward to finally reading some blogs ... and catching up on who's doing what.

Yesterday in Pukekohe I found a few more boxes too...

ABOVE:  and I'm really liking most of them... particularly the pink one.  It's cute.

ABOVE: talking of pink... I found these three cute Tupperware containers at the Hospice Shop yesterday too... they will come in handy for small quantities of 'stuff' I'm sure.  *smiles*

Right... time to do the bare minimum of housework before I park me bum and read bloggity blogs...


After staying in bed until 9.30,  I finally made the kids get up and get moving....oh and me!  lol
It's cold and wet here today... perfect for being lazy inside.

Neraly finished the housework and ready to get down to blogging.... yaaa....

*****How many puppies, how many girls and how many boys??? Guess all correctly and I will GIVEAWAY a small bag, 6 cards and some Kiwi stuff inside to the winner. *****

What I am loving right now:

ABOVE:  I don't put the lounge fireplace on very often... but today I have as it's a shitty day out there and it's nice just sitting here looking at the flames... and enjoying the warmth.

I've done reading blogs... think I read about 170 of the 500+ updated.  I'm done.  It was nice to catch up a bit on what's been happening around your blogs. 

Now I need to feed Brylee and Griffin their lunch.... sheesh it's after 1pm!   Whoops!...

I did a bit of sewing this afternoon...making bedding for Coco's whelping box.... got one finished then my neighbour popped in for a visit.. she just left and it's almost 6pm... yikes I've done nothing about dinner yet... story of my day.

End of Day:  and I've decided it is NOT that relaxing sitting on ya bum for most of the day.  Just saying.
nite nite.


  1. Hi Chris

    Love your idea of using the boxes for projects.

    I was going to give you a call, I'm getting the shuttle to Whitianga but have about 3 spare hours in Auckland and was hoping if you're free I can spend them with you?

  2. Opposite over here. My cousin, his wife, and four kids are in town for a couple of weeks. They're from the other side of the country so there has been a lot of activities since they have arrived.

  3. 7 puppies... 4 girls 3 boys :)

  4. 4 puppies, 3 boys & 1 girl

  5. hey darlin.... I actually have 4 ... two step who are older and bradley and halo the 3 babes who came over today are a blogger friend of mines grand babies. I ambeing their surrogat grandma while they are stationed here in Ga for the next three years...

  6. i love the boxes,i used to work in a newsagency and we sold all those boxes, at xmas time they had xmas ones so i bought a few big ones to store all my xmas decorations

  7. sheesh it's after 1pm!
    AHHHH HAAAA! Finally someone else that sees time fly away! Have you noticed that we seem to just get older - faster -every day??? Or, maybe that is just me because you , my dear friend are just too lovely!
    : )

    I love that pink box too and of course the doggie boxes! I don't think I have seen any around here that cute!

  8. I'm still in denial abt coco's pregnancy. Wasn't she just a little pup not too long ago? Anyhoos, I'm gonna guess 3 puppies - 1 girl 2 boys.

  9. Mmmm, I'm so jealous of that beautiful fire! We have had three days of *continual* bucketing rain. Horrible!

  10. That box has magnadoodles on it!! Too cute.
    5 puppies, 2 boys and 3 girls.

  11. Love the box idea Chris. Gorgeous.. hmmmmm... My guess is Coco will have 2 boy puppies! Hmm what would I know. haha.

  12. Well for once we had no frost no fog but overcast and NOW the rain came at around 3pm.

  13. Flames and fishbowls are both very relaxing to watch.
    I will never take a day to relax for granted again

  14. hey Chris, i'm hearing you on the fruit thing, but i have to try to change!!! thanks for your comment, glad you had a relaxing day today. btw LOVE your little tupperware containers, they are cute and perfect!!!
