"We're not the type
To go out and find others
Who are just like
The ones in our cupboard
We only see
What we read on the covers
We only bleed
If we're not seen by another"

What a crazy year it has been. I think it is safe to say my life was truly turned on it's head at the passing of a friend back in July.

A year from now, you may wish you started today.

Well I think by now it will be of no surprise to you that I have slipped in my posting again... So here's a rather eclectic, obligatory, catch-you-up-to-date post that will make me feel slightly better about my absence!

Please Stand By...

Oh Em Gee... 

Looking back at my previous posts, so much has changed in my life I am not entirely sure where to begin! What a crazy, muddly, hectic and overall AMAZING year 2011 turned out to be... Phwoarr! Here is a rundown, however brief and stilted it may be, that should hopefully make a start at us getting back on track.

"Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world" - Maria Montessori

Today I'm going to take a break from philosophical ramblings, and tell my story with photos. I am hoping they speak for themselves, as they epitomise (to me) what life (and love, for that matter) are all about. I should mention that as I am based in Taupo, the following pictures are not a regular occurrence which made today all the more magical. I should also mention that the photos were snapped via iPhone, so excuse the quality! So much for letting the photos speak... Enjoy...

Humpday High 5

I thought that it was about time I started actually making an effort on this "blog-thing", after much hassling from my friend Renee over at "Memoirs of a Mother". Her blog is simply amazing, and I can't believe how much time and effort she spends on it. Now that I am facebook-free, and have moved the computer back downstairs into the warmth, I really have no excuse. From now on, each Wednesday I will be sharing my "High 5's" of the week. They will be in the form of:

  1.  "Thumbs Up For..." (obviously for my favourite things) 
  2. "Face-palms for..." (for the "what were you thinking??' award) 
  3. "Top Tips" (exciting new things/blogs I have discovered).
Since I've lost my blo-jo (Renee's delightful name for "Blog Mojo") of late, this week's "Top 5's" will more than likely span that of the past month... but I will endeavour to keep it concise! Here goes....
