Just a quick sprinkling of some recent pics. You'll see Ira's fingers on the swing which won't look the same after surgery next week. Feel surprisingly perplexed about changing his precious body now.

Finally Wellington is gracing us with some summer weather! Just as well as we are hosting the sevens (rugby) this weekend and it is Waitangi day which usually gets you out n about for a trip to the beach, picnic or bbq. We are paying homage to the States (again Benj) by doing hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill this evening.

The Races were fab, great long day in the sun with too much bubbles- oh dear, Sunday was even longer.

On a sentimental note - at the park this morning with Edie and Ira having a swing, I had one of those moments in which it was hard for me to believe what a gorgeous family I have. I am so lucky to have two strong determined and beautiful children and a husband who I adore. On top of that I have amazing friends and work colleagues. I need to count my blessings more often.


  1. Great pics and wonderful words. Looking forward to seeing you next week in Welly. Maria, you are right about that hat. Fabulous! x x

  2. Blessings, indeed. What great looking folks!
