Share the joy

Whittaker's Dark Ghana

I am loving dark chocolate {I keep a king sized block in my bedside cabinet and have a couple of squares each night before bed}. This is nothing new, and really, if i’m honest this photo is actually just a by-product of falling in love again with my DSLR.  Taking snaps with my iPhone is so handy and convenient and the pics go straight into my photo stream.  You can’t take photographs like this with your iPhone though……..yet.  This week I am going to take my Canon with me wherever I go and enjoy  taking real pictures again!

Sports Award for Rugby

We are all loving the rugby season.  E’s team is doing so well, with some HUGE wins under their belts, 75-5 this weekend!  E plays his wee heart out every game and makes us so proud.

Dirty Knees

I took this pic at around 6.30pm last night.  When E finally finished playing rugby for the day.  He had one of his team mates over for a play after their game, and than Dave took them back up to the club at 3pm to watch the Prems beat Takapuna!  So it was rugby all day, and the guys loved it.  What was left of Ethan’s skin under the mud did not love being rubbed clean however!

Rainy Day Sunday

Today was rainy and gloomy and we all had a busy day yesterday, so we lazed a little this morning and it was lovely!  There was no rugby, no netball practices at 4pm {WTF was that about team mates?}, no painting, no gardening, in fact I was the only one who had an important ‘to-do’.  Dave has a possible promotion in the works so I had to update his CV format for him –  fingers crossed!

Smoked Salmon & Scrambled Eggs

I really look forward to our Sunday breakfasts.  Dave cooks something delish every week.  This week it was Smoked Salmon, Brie and Scrambled Eggs.  Don’t get me wrong It was great, there was just something about it that was not quite right and I can’t put my finger on it.  One of these things didn’t go with the others, any ideas?

French Braid

I love french braiding my hair, it’s possibly a little too young for me now, but I figure if I keep it looking messy and casual I might be able to get away with it now and then.

Last weeks goal was to get up an hour earlier Monday through Friday.  I completed this 3 out of five days, so will go for all five days this week.  The extra time did allow me to dry my hair in the mornings instead of tie it up in an unbrushed top-knot {which is how I wear my hair 95% of my life}.  I am sick of being time poor!  My hair won’t be this long come Wednesday as I am visiting a new stylist to deal with my roots and ends before the wedding – 8 days til departure!

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.
