It’s been a while since my last post but I still have my camera with me most of the time and take photos now and then – I just don’t seem to have the time to process or post them! Anyway, this is a field that I drive past on my way to work and I kept thinking that it would look good in a photo so I stopped and took some a few days ago… Enjoy 🙂
Nothing symbolises a Kiwi Christmas and summer more than a pohutukawa flower. It’s been another stunning summer day and still enjoying the long sunny days on holiday. I finished the side path at our house today and it looks awesome with the lime chip and I’m very happy with how it turned out 🙂 We then lazed around in the sun followed by home-made pizza and cold beer on the deck. A great finish to a great day 359 🙂
This is the stuff that legends are made of! It fuels the All Blacks to victory and makes you a Kiwi once it passed your lips… Well that’s the speel they tell you but it has been around in New Zealand since the 1920’s and is part of our culture by now. I used to eat Weet-bix all the time growing up but stopped when I was in high school and have only just returned to it after we bought some for Brylee and I started again. I was recently challenged to eat 20 Weet-bix and managed to get through them but it’s fair to say I was quite full as I’m not the biggest person in the world and 20 is a whole lot of Weet-bix! Anyway, it’s far from my favourite photo but good memories and a little bit of New Zealand culture on day 324 🙂
I went for a walk down the beach this morning and even though it was a pretty stink morning, the beach is always awesome. We love living at the beach and are looking forward to our first summer here and spending lots of of swimming and lazing around. Anyway, here are a few shots that I like from day 282…
Only 8 days until the start of the RWC 2011 and starting to get pretty exciting! The teams have been arriving in New Zealand today and even people who don’t normally like rugby are getting a bit excited about the event. An example of excessive merchandise in the build-up to the RWC are these Pump bottles which have individual numbered All Black’s jerseys on them. I only bought it because it was the cheapest but it’s turned out to be pretty handy as the numbers let you tell the difference between other people’s bottles and your own…
Not a great day though as I got through teaching the first two periods then vomited so headed home and have been in bed or on the couch all day! This bottle was close to my mattress on the floor so it was the pick of the day as I haven’t have to move off my mattress so far! Day 241 done 🙂
It was our little mate Te Ana’s first birthday yesterday so her Mum made this name for her wall. She used an entire swarm of butterfly’s for decorating the letters and the girls even had to go back out today to get more but it looks pretty awesome in the end! Happy first birthday Te Anahera and nice work Amy! Day 238… check.
Today I went to watch my brother play in the final for their grade and took along the camera as seems to be a habit after 217 days of this project. It was great weather and fantastic rugby to go along with it. Ohoka (Mikey’s team) played some great rugby including some impressive backline moves from inside their own half that ended under the opposition posts and eventually won 36-12. Apart from random children asking me to take photos of them…what a day!oday I went to watch my brother play in the final for their grade and took along the camera as seems to be a habit after 216 days of this project.
