It is the first day of school holidays here in New Zealand. I love the term break, even more so when everyone behaves! We have swimming each morning this week which will be a good motivator for getting everyone up and out of the house each morning.
And the rain has come, the damp conditions I think have been a factor in the arrival of the vast amount of mushrooms which are growing in the back yard. I need to do some research to see if they are edible.....will test them out on Mr H first.
We don't have any huge plans for the coming 2 weeks. Friends over to play, baking with the kids and some craft are on my list as is the need to get into the garden. My very overgrown vege garden needs weeding and planting up. Now that the much needed rain has arrived - the timing is perfect.
Most exciting of all around here is the arrival of Maybell. Mr H and Bell travelled south on Sunday to pick her up. She is a farm dog who has no interest in sheep or cattle so they could'nt keep her. She has the loveliest nature and is lapping up all of the attention with the added bonus of being allowed to sleep in the laundry. She was a working dog, so she is in heaven with all the fuss we are making of her.
Have you had or are you in the midst of school holidays? What are your plans? Any great holiday fun suggestions?
Do you have a vege garden? What are you planting?
