So this year we started with a grand ol get together at Canton in Kingsland with:
This table of gorgeous smiles to my left
and this table of gorgeous smiles on my right
Next on the cards was the roadie home to Thames for some well earned R&R - With a house to ourselves, sunshine & what felt like all the time in the world, Mr Oratia & I indulged in lotsa chocolate, beer, & fresh picked lettuce (not all at once) we had a few ventures around the Coro too.
We hung out with some lovely pals in Tairua, and picnic'd with fish n chups & played with cutie pie Ri. Mr Oratia put in the hard yards sweeping up the long yards of tiny plastic balls washed ashore from the Rena - a never ending ordeal really.
More sun & more LONG W/E meant more venturing around on the Thames side, and what better way to live life than on a bicycle! Especially if the ground is flat and the sun is shiinnninngg!!
|Picnic'd at Kuranui Bay|
|Cruised up the coast a bit|
|Swam at Tararu Creek|
|Even found the recycling centre|
Driving home from Coro to Aux after a long w/e is not at all fun, but any grimmise soon melts away when you walk in the door to these delicious morsels of magic
My darling delightful cup cake queen out done herself with these vanilla dreams with glitter sherbert. And a smashing happy birthday collage inside! So crafty - I Love!
& my lovely classmates at school whipped this up:
|That's me, making sure I get the whole cake to myself|
|Thank you my sweet class !! U Rock !!|
Of course some special beer was shared on my actual birthday yesterday
& I even got to unwrap long awaited pressies!!!!
Can you see it there on my wrist all pink and techy!
...yes even the most crafty, oppy lovin' gals love a good techy pressie!
