There isn’t any snow falling, nor fires burning or chestnuts roasting… but our festive season has had a lot of sun, sand and smiles :)
Just before Christmas we spent a week at Mt Maunganui, which was glorious!While we were there, my baby girl turned 9!Since Christmas we’ve been for lots of hikes, and even managed some mountain biking. Not to mention plenty of time in the pool.I always love finding a heart shaped rock!I’ve spent much time tending my garden… which is looking lush and green thanks to a couple of days of rain this week! It’s very productive too – artichokes, potatoes, peas, beans, cucumbers – I’m impatiently waiting for the tomatoes, they just need to hurry up and ripen! Of course we still have one of these; And there were plenty of presents, and all the usual things you would expect at Christmas – like us all eating more than a reasonable amount of festive-y food!
The summer still has another month or so to go, but work starts again later this week which will be a rude wake up call for those of us that have been lazing around in bed until a very late hour (ie, me!), but I’m sure we will manage to fit in plenty more outdoor activity before the children have to go back to school next month.
What’s happening in your world? What have you been up to?
