This is probably one of the last photos of Keera with her two front, (top), baby teeth:

 ABOVE:  They are BOTH super wiggly. Steve tried to pull the left one out yesterday, but failed.  

ABOVE:  These two scrap A LOT. ... so it was lovely to see them so happy with each other yesterday. 

Today while enjoying the kid's visit, I shall be packing.

Tomorrow I am heading down south to Palmerston North for 5 days.  Just taking some time out from the norm, and getting to spend some time with our son Mike, and my girlfriends down there.

So, I shall be getting all me stuff together, ready to set out bright and early in the morning.

I'm quite excited!  It's been bloody ages since I was down there last.  This time I am going in my own car, so I can take my time, stop and start, visit family on the way down and so on.

Back to today... if I get the chance I hope to do some sewing too. 

Right... catch ya later.


3.00 pm:  And as I haven't updated today, can ya tell I've been otherwise occupied?
Having the family here is lovely... playing with kids/puppies/yakking... it takes up time!

 ABOVE:  Brylee has a girlfriend over, they are eating popcorn and watching movies.

 ABOVE:  Bex has been helping me in the sewing room... well she was until her brother and sister-in-law arrived. Now she's yakking her head off.

 ABOVE:  The rabbit came back.  Steve tried to give it a carrot, it ran off.  Then came back.  I think he lives in our agapantha patch.

 ABOVE:  We now live in a 'Gate House'.  Steve just made another gate so we can keep the garage door open for good ventilation, but the dogs can't wreck havoc inside.  Until the little girls are house trained, they have to stay in the garage.
All 3 dogs sleep in the garage.

But I have a 'thing' about closed doors! So, a gate works for me.

ABOVE:  All done except for the top stitching, which I will get done shortly.
I've already 'pre-sold' a few!

And silence prevails again.  Steve, Bex and kids just left after a really lovely visit.
Stew is watching cricket (no surprises there)... and I am about to go and pack my bag for tomorrow.

Time to sign off for the day.
