Spring is springing!

It is getting warmer and we just changed the clocks for daylight saving in the weekend, so it’s official – Winter is gone!

I finished my last assignment for the semester on Friday, so Ethan and I jumped into the car and headed for the garden centre.  We had so much fun, that boy can talk me into buying anything I tell you!  We returned home with vege garden compost, beans, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, watermelon, spinach, lettuce, zucchini and cucumber plus Ethan’s special sunflower pot.  Abby’s Mum already gave us our strawberries so hopefully we will have a bountiful summer growing season as winter was not very successful.  It was just too wet this year and I was too busy at Uni to really get going in the patch. 

Today is the first day of the school holidays, Ethan had his mate Isaac over to play and they had such a great morning,  They are both such typical boys all they wanted to do was water-play so that kept them busy for a couple of hours!

It’s not fair though, as I feel like I am on holiday too, but I’m not :  (

Late afternoon playtime;

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
