Long ago !

Sorry girls for my long absence but it is very busy here at the moment. It started first with the flu. I was feeling bad for a couple of days and then of course it effected the rest of the family.
Our eldest girl was really sick and I was a bit worried, with all the stories about swine flu and extra news letters from school. So she was home for the whole week.
Then we had a terrible virus in the computer (named Troy, so better watch out!!!) we had to bring it to the computer shop. We missed him for almost a week and a lot of information is gone, so all the photo's. I really don't like it.

And last but not least I'm very busy with an exciting job. I can't tell you now but hope to let you know what is all going on in our house hold. It is so exciting that I can't sleep at night!! And that tells a lot!

André is still working hard on the kitchen. Sometimes it is easier to place a new one than to renovate an old kitchen. Every time you discover something new what is not OK. We found some nice doorhandles but we have to order them from Australia. It is great to live on an Island but sometimes you feel a bit lonely, if you can find where you are looking for. But we have all the time so we wait and see what they send us. Hopefully the send the right handles.

In the meantime I made a button love heart, easy and very decorative.
Hope to tell you soon about my exciting news!!!
Have a great weekend.

Wat een narigheid! Zieken en een pc die kuren heeft, dat is allemaal niet mis! Gelukkig ben je er weer! Je hart is echt superleuk! Een ideetje om te onthouden!
Succes met jullie keuken en natuurlijk met je nieuwe baan!

Hi, I love your blog,I am from Brazil, I have a blog about craft in general and now I'm offering my readers to download the magazine found the net,, e visit me my blog about food ,visit me, and also appears in my online shop Maison Carré by Tita,, kiss.


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.
