I was expecting Graham before 8am so was up early and moving the cars out of the way in preparation for the arrival of his trailer.
He backed it in and parked it in front of my nicely cleaned out woodshed.
All ready for the boys to unload during the day 🙂
I am ever so grateful to Graham & Anson for keeping my wood supplies up.
We are keeping ever so warm in the house now the days are getting cooler.
It was a cool day so I dragged out of the back of my winter drawer a thick wooden cardigan I had knitted years ago.
Somethings are worth keeping, they come back into fashion if you hold on to them long enough 😉
Caspian is enjoying running about the yard now I have the safety fence up inside the gate/
But when the guys were unloading the wood he parked up under the drawbar.
Must’ve thought it was the safest place!
I had a few things to do so headed off and left them to it.
Popped into SASH to suss out some work information.
Shared chocolates with Sarah-Jane while we talked 😉
Picked up a new set of drawers for Shanni’s bathroom from Warehouse Stationery’s sale in the hopes that it will help keep the place tidier.
Then off to meet Mahalia during her lunch break.
Picked up some baked spuds for our lunch cuz we were both starving hungry.
Then to Hannah’s to try on boots.
So jealous cuz Mahalia was able to fit the boots I really liked but didn’t fit 😉
Came out with a pair each so all was good.
Then to Lighting Plus, but found nothing that we liked.
Dropped her back at NMIT and I headed out to Lighting Direct to pick up a light for Mahalia’s bedroom that we had found online.
Decided I had enough time to buzz on out to Wakatu Estate to check out McCrae’s for some outdoor screens I had seen them advertising.
Got the quote booked and then headed back to the airport.
Stopped in briefly at Tile Direct but found nothing I liked.
Parked up at the airport beside this hot number.
I know which car Mahalia would prefer I drove back home 😉
Soon the travellers arrived to check in.
Once they had gotten their bags checked in they were free to ‘do coffee’.
Our last coffee date for a wee while.
It’been brief but it’s been cool to catch up again with you both again.
Love you heaps & look forward to seeing you in the hopefully not too distant future xxxxx
Amy & Aviah had driven them here and Terence took a few minutes off work to come say goodbye too.
So we had to take some last minute family photos cuz it will be a while before Grandpers and Grandma will be back from Canada again.
I left them to say their last farewells before they boarded, and drove back home.
Nathan was cooking dinner tonight and he was in full flight when I arrived.
He had changed from his original menu and was now creating home made do-it-yourself hamburgers.
He even had a wonderful vegetarian option and a dairy free Shanni option so we all ate extremely well.
Mahalia had rowing so arrived back exhausted but exhilarated.
Shanni was off having a driving lesson after school.
David & Sasha arrived after work.
Sasha was looking a lot better after her change in medication, but still in a lot of pain and discomfort.
After dinner he checked out the bedroom lights that needed fitting.
They need some extra bits and pieces so he will return to do the job later.
Nathan had excelled and had made a delicious pie with ice cream for dessert.
Shanni was in bed by 8pm so I was trying to keep the noise down in the kitchen.
We were all really weary so D&S headed off home soon after.
