After the rain.

Wordless Wednesday

Colmar, France.

I spent some time in September visiting my daughter in Switzerland, and also catching up with my son & his partner. On one of the days I travelled to Colmar in France. The trip in itself was a delight as train travel doesn’t happen here much in NZ.

Did a little HAPPY dance today.

So this is not a Little Drummer Boy post, because I have something else to share with you.

I have become involved with our local A & P Show. Helping to run the photography competition, and a few other things. I was also involved in helping with the signs to advertise it.

Today when coming home from Tauranga I saw the sign. My images up on a billboard for everyone to see.

I did a U turn and went back to take a photo…but not before I did a little HAPPY dance. Feeling ridiculously proud right now.

Every photo is one of mine.

Every one.

Just about bursting with happiness.

So of course I interrupted my scheduled posts to share this news with you.

Meet Ohm & Ploy

I have two new students staying with me for a few weeks. From Thailand. Both girls are 14, and luckily their English is pretty reasonable. While it is a bit of work having people, especially young people you have to cook & clean for…it is nice work.

They are keen to see a kiwi…this is pretty close for now.
The girls were introduced to 'Barry'.

We had a picnic lunch watching grown men race their remote control boats and ducks swim peacefully by.

This really made me laugh. The girls both taking selfies of themselves in the water.

Last night the girls made me their favourite meal. Do NOT ask me to spell it. I have no clue, but it tasted pretty good.

It had prawns...so it was always going to please me.
