At last I have my own sewing room. We built an extra room when Peter's mum came to stay, which my eldest son moved into. Now that she has gone he does not want to move back to his old room. So I have grabbed it. It is really good to be able to put out my sewing things and leave them there, instead of having to get everything out then clear up each time I want to do a bit of sewing.

Stage Two of the side garden renovation. The fence is up. Next stage is painting the fence. Then I can start on the fun bit, as soon as the remaining bamboo is killed off. The fun bit is the planting, so watch this space.

A couple of views from my morning walk. Can you spot Te Mata the sleeping giant in the second view. Te Mata was a giant that wanted to marry a Maori chief's daughter. Before she would agree to marry him, she asked him to eat his way through the mountain. In his rush he bit off to much, choked and fell down dead.
Last weekend we had a short holiday in Taupo, here are some of the pictures.
The first is the house we stayed in.
The view of the house from the lake.
Peter's Mum has been here with us in NZ for four weeks on holiday. We have had a great time, I hope she did too. Here are some of the highlights of her visit.
Arriving at Napier Airport like a film star.
