Loving in Abundance

So here it is, the loving post thats totally picture heavy...

Loving...

Being back in Oz with Daddy/Hubby and living in a lovely little townhouse...
in a complex so new there's hardly anyone else living in the 65 houses... (maybe 10 are filled?)

So the pool is empty (or is that because we are crazy Kiwis-haha)

it kind of feels like we are at a resort

the sun is always shining
We are eating lots of fabulous fresh juicy (cheap!) fruit

We are loving seeing our special best friends


Enrolling at our new school
(eek someone needs to wash their feet!)

Scoring BARGAINS at the local op shops


take one Tip (dump) store + 3 scooters + $21 = 3 very happy children and hours of play today

And at the same tip store.... $10 bought us this hand mower, now Miss K can earn her pocket money mowing our token piece of grass
(hehe caught Daddy in that shot, just after he rolled his eyes about the camera!)
Loving a huge stack of library books to get me through the school holidays...


Loving having this 10 minutes from our door step
(yes those are my children off in the distance... )

And finally.... a reason discovered today that might mean I never ever leave Australia again...

COCONUT MILK YOGHURT!! Heaven I tell you!!!!

Linking up with Paisley Jade

Love the pool and the fresh fruit! We have been rocking the paddling pool and morning tea picnics of grapes and strawberries lately. Can't believe how hot it is all ready! So happy you are reunited with hubby and things are going well so far. :)

Posie Patchwork said...

Yay!! When we are up in Brisbane visiting my husband, with 4 children swimming in the ocean in July, the locals stop & tell us we must be from the south. Technically yes, Canberra, brrr, but they were all born in Darwin, where it's much hotter but you can't swim at the beaches. They'll just swim anywhere. Love Posie

Miriam said...

It all looks great Leonie. So glad you are all together again.

Kylie said...

Welcome back to Oz. Will have to organise that meet up this time before I am packing boxes and moving south. Great finds at the oppy - well done. It looks like you are all getting into the swing of being back.
