I'm back !!











Sorry for the absence but we had a very bust time. My dad was over from Holland and it was great to see him again. We did a lot of things together. In the weekend we spend time together with the whole family. After we brought him to the airport for his long flight back home, the kids started school holidays. You can imagine not much time for myself. The computer is never free and we are really busy making lots and lots of things for the Arts Trail. We are selected and we are looking forward. It's in the first weekend of November but for who are interested I will keep you updated.
Maybe you can remember that we where renovating the kitchen. I can tell you we just finished one part. We still have to do the other side but with more family coming over this weekend and over a few weeks, I don't know if we will start with that part. We don't want to have a big mess when we are having visitors.
But now we can have breakfast in the kitchen and I like it. We already spend a lot of time in our "new" kitchen. And we all see it as quality time!

Joehoe, je bent er weer!! Goed te lezen en horen dat je het zo fijn hebt gehad met je vader.
Ben benieuwd naar de Arts Trail.. Geen idee wat dat is maar klinkt wel heel spannend! Ook benieuwd naar al je nieuwe creaties..
Fijn dat jullie in je 'halve' keuken aan het genieten zijn. Ook van een klein stukje kan je genieten.. Geldt ook voor nieuwe creaties toch? Al is het nog niet af, hoe blij kan je al dan toch al zijn en helemaal voor je zien hoe het gaat zijn, als het helemaal klaar is!

Gosh your kitchen is gorgeous! Is that blackboard on the front of the fridge? What a good idea!

Introducing

This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
