Today we remember those who died in World War 1 to defend our freedoms.  ANZAC stands for:  Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

There will be dawn services all over New Zealand and Australia today, to mark the day.

Meanwhile in this house... I will be doing more packing.

Steve will be coming back to finish working on his van.

Talking of Steve:

ABOVE:  Some family hilarity last night.  I won't explain what Steve had been doing to poor Bex... but it was grubby!  

ABOVE: Stew was TRYING to watch rugby on the telly, while Dante was trying to constantly get his attention... so Granddad would play with the cars with him.  This wasn't working too well for Dante, and he kept yelling at Stew, then he said :


It was hysterical!

So, I've got me camera out taking photos, next thing I know... I've got a small person at me side ...

ABOVE:  This little one LOVES the flash on my camera!  Weird baby.  But oh so cute.

***HAPPY BIRTHDAY*** SHELLY (my niece in Australia).

Right, time to get a move on and do something constructive with me day.

Catch ya later...


5.32 pm:  Whoops!  I have totally forgotten to update today.
Oh well... it's been a relatively quiet day for us.
Steve, Bex and the little boys came over in the morning so Steve could finish of his work van.

Then they left and we went down to the mall after lunch and Brylee got some Thermals.  She will need them in Hamilton!

I did a wee bit more packing, but not much.  I'm so tired I needed a break from it.

Stew is cooking dinner... sausages, hash browns, baked beans and eggs.  Yum!
