I want to write, but more than that, I want to bring out all kinds of things that lie buried deep in my heart.

I received a few interesting gifts this Christmas. Here are some of my favourites:

I often say, "Ironing isn't in my job description". My sister-in-law thought this ironing board cover would help keep my mind on, erm...the job in hand.

This caricature of hubby and I was drawn by a good friend's son-in-law who stayed at the beach with us over Christmas. It's scary how well he got to know us after such a short time.

It's hard to see properly in the photo but there is some very unsavory looking food on the table and the caption reads - Why do you remind me why I married you, every time you cook?

Last time we went camping,the rain poured down and every time I went outside I came back with legs covered in mud. I mentioned to hubby how I would love to have some wellies (AKA wellington boots, gumboots) but I couldn't bring myself to wear those ugly black ones. OMG, I love my pink and purple wellies;they are so me!

Hubby wanted to take me over to England before Christmas to visit my step-daugter but I was still recovering from jet lag from our last trip. He took his youngest daughter with him instead and I wanted to share some of the pics from their trip. Hope you likey!

I am so excited! Super 14 starts next week and I can't wait. Has been too long since I've had a rugby fix.

I was searching for rugby on UTube and found this little beauty. Two of my favourite Rugby players in the same video. Unfortunately, both of these talented players have headed to England. It's such a shame the NZ Rugby Union can't afford to pay them what they are worth. You can hardly blame them for heading overseas.

I think Toadee, Keith and Dickiebo should band together, kidnap them and send them home where they belong, hehe!

Me thinks I will watch video again.

Happier news - I just clocked up over 100 blog posts! GO ME!!!!!!!!!!

Love comes in all sizes....

Your Friends will support you....

And respect your creativity
for thinking outside the box....

They'll be there when you need a
shoulder to lean on....

Or a great big hug....

A true friend takes interest in
understanding what you're all about....

They see beyond the black and white
to discover your true colors....

And accept you just the way you are...
Even when you just wake up in the morning

So make your own kind of music....

Follow your heart wherever it takes you....

And when someone reaches out to you,
Don't be afraid to love them back....

They may just be a friend for life....

Practice patience and tolerance.....

Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave....
And impossible to forget!
Share this with all your unforgettable friends today....
