OR IN OTHER WORDS... HAPPY NEW ZEALAND DAY!  It's a public holiday, so we get to enjoy the day with Stew home, and Steve and family too.

I reckon it's going to be a pool day ... all day!

My word, I can't believe how much use our little pool is getting!  But... that's awesome.

 ABOVE:  most of the girls/kids from Cards in the pool last night... it was so nice!

ABOVE:  The late arrivers for card night.

ABOVE:  I saw this on Facebook the other day... it's pretty accurate!  Made me smile if nothing else.

And that's all for now... I might just get in me togs and live in them today.


5.50 pm!!!!

Sorry... but I've been flat out all day long!
After getting outta bed, I had breakfast at 10 am, then got a message from a couple of girlfriends asking if I wanted to join then at the movies?

I immediately thought NO, cos the family were here.  But they (the family), said I should go, so I did.

We saw 'The Green Book'.  I enjoyed it, even though it was a bit slow.  It was a nice, thought provoking movie.

Once home at 1 pm, I joined everyone out the back, in the pool and just having fun.

Between me and Lacy 'n' Kelly, we took 341 photos!  I will share just a few today, and show you more tomorrow.

ABOVE:  Kelly and Rena came out for a catch up too... so we had a full pool... again!
Such fun.  So, so thankful for the pool.
I don't think I will ever stop saying it.

ABOVE: Dick of the day. 

I've got chicken pieces in the oven and rice on in the rice cooker for dinner.  Air con is ON.

So hot.  But it's been a fantastic day.

8 pm:  And it's been RAINING in Hamilton, which is only 15 minutes away from here.  And we have none.  That sucks... we could really do with some rain!

Signing off for the day... it's finally cooling down. I'm so tired... can hardly keep me eyes open!


  1. Love the fact you are having such fun times in the pool all ages n all,, doesn't seem to matter .. We all love a cool dip on a hot day/night.

    Enjoy the day and having a mid week holiday for Waitangi day well that's an extra bonus (smiles)

    Not sure why i thought about it but have you thought about making wheat packs for the markets - you know the new style hot water bottle thingys that you put in the microwave to heat up or the fridge to cool. Bee - Gold Coast (Cant remember my google password) :)

  3. Where have you been all day? Aren't you rather late for updating?

    1. I was busy having fun babe!

    2. Why don't I remember you having a cute hobbit house in the backyard? Looks like a fun filled day!

    Your family uses your pool so much maybe consider a under ground pool, you’d love it. Jo

    1. Sadly that is not in the budget.

  5. That pool as been a godsend this summer. Not hot enough down here.

    I have always been a "hater" only because of Lacy's actions and choices (and I'm still not a fan of her) but I love, really love the photos of you guys in the pool!
