August 16, update. We moved into my Dads 2 weeks ago to save for overseas in December, and in 2 days we move out of my family home of 16 years and into a little rental for a while till we all go overseas. It's weird to think we won't have that home anymore, but it definitely has not been the same not having mum there, so it will probably be a good fresh start for us. We have all those memories in our heads and they'll never leave there. We've been keeping busy with work and packing, and last weekend we drove down to KatiKati horsecamp with 30 rally boys and had a really fun time riding horses and playing in heaps of mud. It was refreshing to let loose and breathe in some fresh air. On the way home we detoured into Waihi Beach and slept on the sand for a few hours, the salty air and warm sun was paradise. I've been talking to Jonny this whole winter about how much I miss the warm sun and how badly I want to go to Hawaii (not happening) so we shut our eyes at Waihi and napped and it was basically the same thing. Hawaii = Waihi.
1. I had last Saturday all to myself so attempted to bake a Plum Galette and it surprisingly turned out pretty good! ;)
2. Country paddocks on the drive down to camp
4. CRAZY mud at the farm this year. Of course I made Jonny give me a piggy back across the big puddles. ;)
