What's Happening?

Well the house is all packed up and in storage and I am staying at my cousins until I move back up to Gisborne in three weeks time.  Before then I am off to Bathurst 1000....getting so excited about that.  Off to pick up my travel pack tomorrow in town.

So I thought I had packed up some stitching to do for my Christmas swaps, but going through my car I have realized it must have gone into storage too ... damn. Fortunately I do have my overdue hexi swaps to stitch I then thought.  Well yes I do, but the hexi templates are in the same place as that stitching I want to do, so only got some done..... double damn.  But I do have my Natures Journey to work on ...... well some of it, because you guessed .... it went to storage.  I should have just placed everything in one box.  Anyway Lincraft is opening here in Taupo next week so I will have a look for some things to do there and I was planning on a trip to Rotorua tomorrow or Saturday so may have a look there too.  I can say I have plenty of books to read.

I have just finished this one

I have never really been into these kind of books but in the last 9 months was in a book club so started reading a variety of different ones.  After reading They Storyteller by Jodi Picoult I have taken a shining to this author.  This book was so thought thought provoking and touched on teen suicide.  I really enjoyed it and could not put it down

I have to also admit that I have been reading some Mills and Boons which I have not down for some years.  I usually have a run of reading these before getting back into the bigger novels.

One other book (which our school must have been one of the only ones not to read it), is To Kill a Mocking Bird.  I have this on my Kindle and am reading this too.  I do not know why after hearing about it for so many years I have taken this long to read it but glad I am.

Moving Again .....

And again less than a year, I am moving.  Hubby's job did not work out so he resigned and we are moving back to Gisborne.  The only strange thing is that after 40 years living on both dairy and then sheep and beef farms, is that I am moving to town.

I won't miss the commute to work, the capped internet, no cell phone coverage, but I will miss the quietness of the country side.

Another benefit is I will not be at all that far from a quilt shop I discovered just before my last move.

If you are in a swap with me never fear, my mail is being redirected for a while and anyone else I will get my new address out too.

At the moment I am feeling a bit like this, as working and packing is not easy and there are boxes everywhere.  At least hubby is not currently working so can do all the outside things and cook the meals.
