Ged and I were children-less the other night, and after a crazy muggy day, we decided to do some thunderstorm gardening. It was so nice to be outside with rain starting to come down and the thunder & lightening. We dug up our rather sad garlic ( we planted late as we moved in to this house in July, so the poor things never got a decent chance, but hey, some is better than none!) Planted heaps of beetroot and sunflowers, new lettuces, cucumbers & some more tomatoes.
Eating from the garden has been SO bloody nice. You just can't beat that flavour!
Time to plant some more carrots, 'someone' has been sneaking baby ones while they water the garden???
P.S: Please feel free to admire the progress on my little sewing studio in the background!

Ashleigh came home from a sleep over
the other day with a little surprise.
There have been here for 3 days and are still alive!
Finger crossed.
They're camped out in the hot water cupboard.

Today I posted off my decorations for the
Christmas decoration swap organized by sew funky
The top 3 pics are ornaments I've received in the post already
and the reindeer at the bottom are my contribution to the swap.
I love partaking in these swaps as the the kids get just as much
of a thrill as I do finding goodies in the mail box!

A few pics of the weekend bash.
Ged and his beautiful niece Chimere
cutting some cake.
The whanau below. Gosh were a motley bunch!
And that's not even half of us!

Tomorrow is my partner Ged's 40th & he is having a joint party with his neice Chimere who is turning 20. Were having a fancy dress G & C theme and I cant wait to see what people come up with. Chimere's fav colour is yellow so I've made her floral purse with some vintage button earings and chunky ring to match.
Hopefully I'll get some good pics to post. Ged & I are going as cave Man
& Woman! The only costume that will fit over my bump I think!

The 1st of Christmas has been, and with it two little girls bursting with excitement over opening their Advent calenders. Alex and Ashleigh are away on camp so they have to wait until Friday fro theirs, I am tempted to sample on behalf!
I've had a few good thrift finds lately, but keep forgetting to take pics! I scored some mint condition white leather retro roller-skate's in the brown vinyl carry bag for Ash for Christmas from the salvo's for $20!
And today I got this stunning bread bin which the girls think is awesome. There's nothing like retro floral to brighten your day!
I'm working on my Christmas deco swap at the Moment, and I'll post about that soon.
Hope you have all
enjoyed the sunny weather!
