Ahhh… Sunshine!


The last few days have been filled with glorious sunshine, I have enjoyed pottering out in the garden…:O) This morning I even cleaned windows and washed net curtains…


Yesterday I took a trip to New Plymouth and had lunch and a catch up with my Mum, it was very therapeutic… Mum suggested we should go to the Hamilton Craft Fair next weekend as it’s been a number of years since we were there last, I talked to DH this morning and he booked us a motel room then and there! My plans were to just do a day trip but this way it will be much more relaxed…:O) I am excited and nervous all at the same time it’s been a while since a left my family behind to fend for themselves…eek!

Have any of you made plans to go?


These two fluffy bums have been let out on good behaviour, one of them I’m not sure which but I think it is Miss Marmalade on the right has started laying…Oh and please ignore the weeds…lol


It’s so little and cute, you need two eggs to make up one normal sized egg :O)

Well I’m off to potter in the garden again…

Have fun next weekend. Something I would like to go to one day.

I go to the Hamilton quilt and craft fair every year with my Mother. It's a really nice bonding day together but I'm not going this year as a friend is shouting us out to the ballet in Auckland which is the same weekend. I'm sure you will love it! Love your fluffy bummed chickens and aren't the first eggs so cute :-)

what a sweet fellow you have there!
I bet the family will survive just fine without you for a short time.
I can't wait to see what crafts you discover at the fair!

Your post has made me smile from ear to ear Michelle! Those flowers are beautiful, and those fluffy bums are too cute. I hope you have a wonderful time in Hamilton with your Mum, the family will fend for themselves just fine(either that or you can always pick up the pieces when you get home .... lol)
Have a wonderful Fathers Day with DH today.....Nicky x

Hello Michelle,

Such a happy post. Just love those little chooks, what a great photo. Nothing like a fresh egg for your cooking. Have fun at the fair, I am sure your family will do just fine.

Happy days.
