Prepare to be overloaded

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.

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
