Stew has a meeting up in Auckland today.  He's leaving at around 6.30 am.

I'm going with him... yep.  I am going hitch a ride and spend the day with Bex and the kids (once they are out of school).  

After his meeting has ended, Stew will join us for dinner.

Should be a nice day... provided the weather isn't too much like yesterday!  OMG yesterday was wild.

Last night I laid out the plans for two more 'Holiday Time' runners.

ABOVE:  Two on the go.  I will work on them tomorrow.  I'm not so sure about that motor home (top right), it might have a bit too much detail.  I will see how it goes.  These two might also have hills instead of trees... or maybe both?  Dunno yet.

Not sure what Bex and I will get up to while the kids are at school/kindy.  A visit to a fabric shop or two might be on the cards.  Who knows!


9 am: safely in Auckland.  Cold as f*@#. Blowing a gale. Perfect shopping weather! Lol

Just waiting for Bex to pick me up from the Hotel where Stews meeting is being held.

1 pm:  and we are home from shopping.
What fun!

 ABOVE... got this thingee from Ribbon Rose in Mt Wellington. Can't  rotate the photo! Derr.

 ABOVE: Tried to stop this baby bird from getting run over in the car park.

ABOVE: Got some fabric for Christmas decorations.... gunna try making some next week. 

Silly me packed up all my Christmas  fabric and put it in storage!

Time to chill out at the Kid's. 

So... a quiet afternoon, then off to the mall for dinner with the kids.
Then we headed home.

Got caught up in traffic due to an accident on the motorway... took an hour to cover a 5 km stretch of road!

But finally got home at 9.45 pm.

Now, catching up on stuff online before heading off to bed.  It's been a long day.
