Saturday Love

Ahhh. I’m writing this on a quick respite from our big trade show. 12 day work stretch…….the hard work will be over tomorrow though!

Viaduct tram

Loving this scene at the viaduct yesterday morning.  Some smart tourist had parked their whopping great camper with it’s back end hanging out over the tram tracks.  Just what downtown Auckland needs on the morning of a huge trade show, a tram traffic jam!

Auckland Viaduct

Loving having a moment to enjoy Auckland’s beautiful waterfront.

More backyard fishing

Ethan’s lifelong passion for fishing is in full swing at the moment.  Loving catching little glimpses of him in full narrative,  engrossed in his inner wildlife tv series.

Albino Catfish

Of course the fish obsession requires us to visit at least one pet store per week and plan his future tropical fish tank.


Loving the troll series of stickers that are popping up all over the place at the moment.  How true is this one?


I love wetas.  Oddly they do not bother me at all compared to my near-paralytic fear of cockroaches.  We found this beautiful guy on our gate and after a quick inspection Ethan released him onto a big tree in the yard.

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