i really never had any intention of abandoning my blog, but somehow it happened.
anyway, here's what you missed.
my beautiful eldest daughter graduated university (college)
with a Bachelor of Design majoring in Advertising (with Honours)
and they're only a couple of suburbs away. yay!
after the last lot of paint dried, we did this
while we didn't have a kitchen we camped out in the lounge
...watched the olympics
and all the while i was working FULL-TIME
AND flying to Christchurch in the weekends to see my dad who had open heart surgery
(he's recovering well, thank you) :)
and then we christened the kitchen
miss 16's bestie flew over from australia for 2 weeks
then miss 14, myself and miss bestie flew back for tara's birthday
somebody turned 23
then somebody else turned 16
of course there was zumba
zumba sentao - LOVE!
6 times a week when i'm not working and significantly less when i AM!
there were (and always are!) lots of zumba related fun times
like this PYJAMA party back in june
then there was the week we made 44 dozen cupcakes and raised $1280 for the SPCA
there was the night i got to be my friend's PLUS ONE at the Wellington on a Plate Bake Off
She placed in the TOP 5!!!
there was a steam train trip
a cake decorating class
my SIL's 60th birthday party
she does NOT look 60, does she?!
(that's her 3rd from the left)
another party (bastille)
another hair cut and colour
a high school ball
...and of course no winter is complete without a sports injury...
and that pretty much brings us up-to-date!
and then it'll be time to start CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!!!
TUNE IN TOMORROW for an extended before and after of the NEW KITCHEN!!!
