"Makes Me Happy Monday."

Hello and a huge big "Happy Monday" to everyone.

I have been away from the computer since my last post. We have been busy here at Kainga with visitors, I think I have seen more suitcases coming and going than hot breakfasts.

The big news is why we have had all those visitors. Lucy came back from her year in New Zealand on Wednesday. We were waiting at the airport for her and photographers started arriving then a few more then camera crews. We thought this couldn't just be for Lucy!!! No it was for Paul Collingwood the English cricketer. Though I had no idea who he was Ian knew. The blokes who were at the airport and a few young girls quickly got out there cameras.

Lucy had a wonderful time while she was away. The last three weeks was on a tour of the South Island. She met some wonderful fellow travellers and did things we wouldn't do.


Like jumping into canyons in a plastic garden chair. It was so much fun watching DVDs of these two jumps and her Nevis Bungy Jump. Which is 134 metres down!!!! You think Lucy would have wanted a few days rest when getting home, no on Friday we had a trip with her Gran to Goomalling for some shopping and lunch at our favourite place to eat the Go-Cafe. Then on Sunday she and a few friends left to go camping for the week. So glad to have you back home Lucy.


I have managed to get some machine embroidery done over the last few days. Can you guess who this fellow is?

Since I haven't been on my blog since last week I noticed my Header has changed size. Has Blogger been playing with things while I was away????

Whatever you do make sure you have a "Happy Monday."

Happy days.

Have you been feeding your header to make it grow? Looks like Lucy is quite the daredevil. I think I would faint if I had to bungy jump!

Nice for you to have Lucy back for Christmas. You wouldn't find me bungy jumping either, I'm a bit of a chicken!! I don't know who that man is you are embroidering.

Sounds like you've been busy with lots of fun! Hard to keep up with those daredevils, isn't it. Glad to hear you're back at it on the sewing machine.
