AWOL from Blogland....

To all my blogging friends I must apologise for not checking out your posts of late, or of even making the effort to put up posts on my own blog. The thing is I have had a major "Blog Blank". There doesn't appear to have been a whole lot to blog about, same old, same old. Get up, go to work, come home, keep warm, go to bed, get up...Blah,blah,blah......

I put it down to Winter, dark in the morning when I get up and dark when I get home. Just trying to keep warm uses up so much energy. And add to that the totally weird weather we have been having, I mean to say we have had snow in Auckland, in fact it snowed here in Waiuku where we live. "Okay," I hear you say, "what's the big deal, snow is snow who cares.  " Well we care...we live in a sub-tropical area, with lots of rain throughout the year, humid in Summer and cold in Winter...IT DOES NOT SNOW!! And boy was it cold, freezing, temps of -2dgrees celsius. Just to prove it here is a photo taken from our from verandah on Tuesday, it is snow, I tell you it is snow... ( well perhaps sleety sort of snow} If you look real close you can see the snow... And of course all the Spring blooms are early and have been destroyed by the cold weather..


Add to the cold Winter, the fact that I have been horrendously busy at work and when I get home all I want to do is chill out. But that is about to change, I am about to take a break, hop on a plane and visit my beautiful daughter Evette, my totally gorgeous grandchildren Emma and Lucca , and my wonderful son-in-law Jared.. I'm off to the States on Wednesday...Wahoo!!

Off to see these guys...

This photo was taken a few years ago, I will be making sure I get lots of current photos of them all together..

So, if I'm not visiting your blog or posting on mine, sorry, but I'm going to be a tad busy.

I know you are going to have a wonderful time. It ok about blogging. Sometimes it is hard to sit down and do it. Have a safe trip.

I miss your posts, but I'm glad you're doing one of your favourite things, SEEING YOUR GRANDKIDS.
I bet you'll have so much fun.
I'm just a tad bit upset that I'm not going to see you this trip.
If you feel like a weekend getaway, we'd love to have you (Evette might kill me for saying that ;))
Love you

I surely know how you feel about the weather!! It frequently has a negative effect on me, too. It's summer here in the states, but here in Seattle, we are just now getting some sunny, warm days and it's almost Fall!! Have a great visit with your grandkids and enjoy your weekend!
