Beach walk

Sorry for my long absence but my life is like a little roller coaster at the moment. I'm still really busy with what I'm doing and nothing is really sure so I can't tell much at the moment. But my fingers are crossed (for weeks already).

The girls have a winter break at the moment and we went for a great beach walk. We live close to the beach but is was a long time ago that I was there. In summer time I normally go every day. It's the best place at the world I think. Specially when you have the whole beach for yourself. And wintertime in New Zealand is nothing comparing to Holland. I don't have a winter jacket and most of the time we don't wear long pants. Of course you can have some cold days but when the sun comes out you can sit outside and enjoy coffee in the winter garden. Great life

Hope to be back soon and show you all my activities!
For everyone who is having summer holiday enjoy it and make the most of it.
We are still waiting for our kitchen door handles, they have to come from Australie. We have a kitchen without doors and I can tell you it is messy but handy!

Hi Lien, what beautiful photos of the beach, and I am so envious that your winter looks like our summer. Sorry you were not a winner in the giveaway, but I will have another one before the end of the summer (Irish summer that is), I am so curious about your news. Good luck with it and I too will keep my fingers crossed for you. Hugs, Margie.

We live near the beach too (by the Indian Ocean) and went for a long walk last week - you ae right, it is wonderful to have the beach to yourself! Can't wait to hear your exciting news.

Het ziet er heerlijk uit daar op jullie strand. ben zelf ook een strand mens.
Ook heerlijk dat jullie geen winterjas nodig hebben in de winter dat zou voor mij echt een heerlijkheid zijn. want hoe gezellig ook de winterdagen die kou en regen is niets aan. Tenzij.... er van die prachtige blauwe luchten zijn met een echte heerlijke vrieskou, daar kan ik dan zo van genieten.

Ja, jullie winters zijn wel heel anders dan bij ons! Zo zag onze zomer er afgelopen week nog niet eens uit, maar goed, we mogen niet mopperen, vandaag weer volop zonneschijn! Je maakt ons wel nieuwsgierg hoor, maar ik duim met je mee!

Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

Wauw, mooie foto's. Winter klinkt voor mij raar in de oren alhoewel het in Nederland vandaag net herfst is.
Wacht met spanning op je nieuwe post, misschien met goed nieuws, ik zal een kaarsje voor je opsteken.

XO Heidi

Hi Lien, I have awarded you on Margie's Crafts. Hugs, Margie.

Bellavien said...

Heerlijk dat weer bij jullie, wel grappig eigenlijk zo ik in NZ geboren worden, mijn ouders hadden alle papieren geregeld, maar helaas op het laatste moment................. maar nieuwsgierig ben ik wel naar NZ waar ik eigenlijk geboren zou worden. Heerlijk genieten zo via jou!

Hi Lien, hope you are not working too hard,missing your posts, still wondering what your news is. Hugs, Margie.


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.
