how 2012 is keeping me on my toes

at this time every year, we'd normally be doing this


but for the first time in 10 years - we didn't.

we went here instead!








(fiji)


and it was gooooooood

because this child was going to be doing this


for 9 days (leaving on her birthday)

we had her birthday 3 days earlier




man overboard!!!


this was taken on her ACTUAL birthday
(at 6.50AM!!!!)

waiting to leave for summer rowing camp



 not camping has given us the opportunity to lots of different things in and around wellington that we wouldn't normally do

like winery days



and going to the RACES!

ok - we haven't actually BEEN yet, but come saturday - i'll be wearing this!!!


my first fascinator!  very exciting


oh, and this child is leaving home in 3 weeks


personally i think she's a little YOUNG to be leaving home, but that's how she looked to me yesterday, but then i blinked and...


she grew up

damn her



so she's moving out:

the younger 2 girls start their 2nd and 3rd years at college (high school)

there's major room swaps happening

furniture being purchased

carpets being cleaned

rooms being painted

trips to australia (me and miss 22)

weekends away

plus all the usual stuff that fills our weeks and weekends



like i said

The resort is looking a little more fab than the camping experience! Such gorgeous shots.

I can't imagine my girls moving out. Time really does go by in the blink of an eye doesn't it?
