Things I’m Loving | Hello Weekend!


* this has to be one of  my most favourite photos, so many things I love in one frame, and completely candid {proven by the dogs, posing in just the right spots!  you could never make them do that}

loving Dave having a leisurely Friday working from home

* loving sunny warm weather after some serious rain – I haven’t turned the heat pump on all week, hooray says my power bill!

* loving The America’s Cup racing, this country is going to go mad when the boys win, also loving that my new SAHM status means that I’m usually curled up on the couch watching in my dressing gown at 8am

loving you, bloggy readers who leave comments and make me laugh, especially when you also make videos – I’m pointing and whistling at you Maria!

loving remote access {I think} which lets me log in to my work computer at leisure and work pitifully small amounts whenever I can.  How can 14 weeks paid leave go so quick!

loving having my Mum around to share our baby with, we ALL missed out on so much when Ethan was born in the USA.  There is nothing better than seeing someone else love your bubba and think they are just as delicious as you do x

loving letting my big boy walk home from school, a little extra exercise and independence is just what our 8yo needs {plus I gain an extra half hour in my day – everybody wins!}

Bonus Loving


1.  Cake.  Any kind,  Can’t get enough right now

2.  Ecostore Coconut Soap.  My fave.  Smells like summer

3.  Daniel Wellington watches, which one?  I just can’t decide

4.  Citta Sola Cushion I love their whole new summer range, will be replenishing our couch cushions with a selection of their new Greek inspired furnishings.

5.  Karlsson Mini Flip Calendar Wall Clock, trying to justify this in my wallet head

6.  Rekorderlig Cider – omg yum.  Available at all the usual boozy haunts

7.  Ambrosia apples have been my all time fave this winter, so crispy and sweet and juicy

Have a wonderful weekend!

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.

  1. oh the cider… nom noms!! Great list and really like the look of that watch! Hope you have a great weekend x

  2. Yes that photo sure is a keeper. And I love that you manage to find such funky, creative stuff to love. We're Eve apple fans in this house – but just the name Ambrosia sounds as if I would love them too! xx

  3. Ditto on the Rekorderlig Cider, was given this by accident down at our local the other day…I asked for 'this' they gave me 'that'…but it was a hugely pleasant surprise. Will order on purpose next time.

  4. so i come to read this post and see that there is a link behind my name and straight away i think, "oh, shhhhhh… please don't have linked this video here…"

    and then i click on the link, in trepidation, and it only leads to my blog. and i go, "phew!"

    well that was a relief!

    otherwise there would've been lots and lots of people watching me dance in my kitchen in the morning =D

    so, yeah, thank you for for being considerate, i really appreciate that! =)
