So this is supposed to be a craft blog and there's been very little crafting recorded on it while we have been in NZ. So today I will bombard you with pictures of our holiday and then tomorrow its back to some serious creating!
The Christmas corner at my sisters, the kids and their cousin posing on Christmas eve.
Finished stockings for myself and my son, Sonic (his previous one had something spilt on it so I had to make a new one)
ROTORUA... the Redwood forest (Hubby and his brother went mountain biking through here and also took the kids for a walk)
Thermal pools and bubbling mud
Enjoying time with cousins at Skyline Rotorua (a ride up the Gondola, luge back down, chair lift back up and do it again.. until you fall off, like my eldest and end up with a large graze full of rubber on your stomach which requires days of dressings!! poor wee sausage - its all better now thankfully :))
Ok, so Aussie has the Big pineapple, big prawn, big banana etc... but New Zealand has a BIG corrugated iron Sheep and Dog (being a farming country of course) there's a shop in the sheep and the information centre and public toilets in the dog... its a little place called Tirau
Then it was back up North for the New Year and a trip to a carnival at Mangawhai ... the place I would most want to live in NZ
Ok... thats enough today its taken me ages to load them.... tomorrow I'll do the rest!!! Going to feed my children lunch and be creative for the afternoon :)
