Here's some more photos from our trip to Raglan yesterday:
ABOVE: Photos taken by Griffin P B Harvey.
ABOVE: On the Raglan Wharf we found Tony Sly Pottery. Normally I wouldn't bother going in, as he usually only has his signature green and gold coloured pottery. And in fact I almost didn't go in... but did at the last second.
And how lucky I did! He's got a new colour!
And of course I love it...
Stew is having a sleep in, so it's only me and Keera up right now. Plans for the day are open. We will see once Stew is up.
It has been a morning of housework here. Griffin did the vacuming, Brylee did bathrooms and windowsills, Stew did a couple of odd jobs and I moved stuff.
All my lovely platters have been stacked in the TV unit in the family room... hard to see what I had, and even harder to get a specific one out to use.
So I took back the shelving unit in Griffin's room and put it here:
ABOVE: I was a bit worried it would crowd the room, but nope, it fits there just fine. And now I can see at a glance my platters, serving dishes and so on.
All the bigger bowls are still in the TV unit in the Family Room... but at least now they are not piled high and hard to get out.
ABOVE: Poor little man was hungry after having to vacum, so he had his breakfast. Yep. That's his breakfast! He wasn't really scowling! Just being silly. How hard is it for a bloody teenager to smile????
6.30 pm: and we have had a busy afternoon. We had a mini working bee and trimmed the agapanthas out the front of our house.
That was incredibly hot and sticky work.
I didn't do too much of the 'work', the kids and Stew did most of it. But I did do some *smiles*.
Now, the family are having steak, mashed potato and veges for dinner and I'm not.
I had a really good, filling lunch.
Then I dyed the white dress/top I bought a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully it comes out kinda how I hope.
Now... we are expecting one of my Aunt's for a visit. Joyce lives in Auckland, but is down this way over the weekend. Not sure why, but I'm sure to find out.
That's me for the day. Catch ya tomorrow.
