So what have I been up to? Well quite a bit really, that's what it feels like......I just tell it in photos!
On Saturday we went to see the All Blacks & England rugby game here in Hamilton...
First we had a drink in The Londoner Pub
Then after a Turkish meal, were multi ethnic that way..
we made our way to the stadium and had a drink in the Waikato Supporters club
Sorry dreadful photos from my phone camera...England lost! Not a good week for English sport!
Good job I don't give a rats bottom innit!
After nodding off during the second half the game finally ended,
we had a quick drink in the supporters club again
Then it was off into town for a bit of a knees up with the young'uns!
And so to today, Sue had arranged to meet up with a fellow blogger and asked if I wanted to tag along too, there was a spot of op shopping to be had afterwards, so how could I refuse! Before we even got out of her house I came away with a bag of goodies, sent down by Sue's sister...
Woven bag and great big chunky necklaces, there was top too, but not my colour so I'll pass that on to a friend, thank you Helen!
Sue's blog post is here Make sure you go take a look!!
I'm so glad I went, we met Julie, her blog is My Threadbear life, such a lovely morning at her lovely home, it was to die for, her mum was there knitting, we had tea in spotty cups and banana and bran muffins! Then we had a look around her shed in the garden, a shop that sells her wonderful crafty makes, and other things from crafty friends. I bought this rather cute brooch..
I hope to go back real soon I've promised to teach Julie to crochet.
After dragging ourselves away, it really is a place you could stay all day we went to get in a big of op shopping in Te Awamutu, I didn't get too much as I left my purse at home and Joe had to get me some pocket money so I could go play... here are my few finds..
Two tulip garden thingies, great for putting a glass of something is when sitting in the garden!
Sue reckoned candles but ya can't drink a candle! Well I could then I would really wax lyrical!
