Sugar Skull Tattoo

Things I’m Loving

A wee bit late but better late than never right?

I am LOVING Dave’s tattoo.  The shading was finished last Tuesday so he is healing well and itching like mad!  These skulls are called Sugar Skulls and are common imagery used to honor the dead during the Mexican celebration Dia de la Muertos.  Dave and I were married in San Diego {Ethan was also born there} so we LOVE all things south of the border.

I am so loving porridge for breakfast {occasionally}.  I forgot my standard apple and cheese last week and remembered I had a box of  Pam’s Berry Porridge sachets stashed in the work kitchen.  What a treat, CARBS!

These winterey mornings can be quite brutal {for Auckland}, but the afternoon drive to pick up Ethan from school can be quietly stunning.  I drive 15km to work and 15km back along an open road, through farms, orchards and much roadkill but… the vista some days is so damn pretty I have to resist the urge to stop and snap pics every kilometre or so.

I am NOT loving adult onesies in public, but I am loving how ghetto fab my local Countdown is that someone would actually wear this shopping.  Westies rule.

Finally, Sunday breakfast in bed was SO perfect as I was feeling a little under the weather, ahem.  Saturday night at the rugby club watching the All Blacks narrowly beat the Irish was a bit too nerve-wracking for my liking!

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something you can be thankful for..no matter how simple it is.

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.
