I don’t feel like I’m a parent to a teenager – at least, not in a ‘ARGH! I have teenager in the house, run for the hills!’ kind of way. But then, the teenage years last six years, so I am sure those moments will come, but right now our Miss 13 is a real […]
Magic Moments – spent celebrating our daughter turn 12!
There’s nothing like a Birthday, particularly one of your child, to make you aware of how time flies (and seems to keep speeding up the older they get!). Our oldest daughter turned 12 today and she’s had the most fun weekend celebrating. She spent the night before her Birthday celebrating with friends. They played Laser […]
December reflections | Christmas, a Birthday & holidaying

All packed and ready for the off!
Clocks have swung forward an hour and we’re all set to leave the house at 7am tomorrow morning for our ferry crossing to the South Island and a week’s holiday in Nelson. It’s always a mission getting the car packed with all the essentials and I wish I could be more zen about packing. It’s […]
