Big wide sky. I love New Zealand.




New Years day and we had the kids at a river, swinging out over it on a big rope....summers like we used to have...back when the summer was longer and hotter............
and sea shells weren't that odd...this one looked like a toe-nail.
Of course, chocolate comes in many forms and colours...this is fudge.


Happy New year to all. Let's hope it is, even tho' tonight I watched with horror about the people who attempted to take refuge in a church only to be burned alive in it. Jeez. OK. so the news artcile on the link doesn't mention kids but the verbal one did. Either way, people died. What the fuck? Jeez. Louise. Am I missing something here? How smug are we.

Happy New year. Let's actively try to make surethat it ain't the "same ol...same ol..."

Happy New Year! Let's hope 2008 is a good one.

That fudge looks jolly yummy but I am afraid I cannot read your accounts of summer without feeling very peeved. It's effing cold here!

Happy New Year to you. You had all that lovely sunshine and we had close to a foot of snow.

Wonderful pictures - a real tonic for the grey, slicing winds currently assailing us here in the UK!

Mmm yummy looking fudge!

"Fudge" is actually one of my favourite words in the English language, but let's not go there...

And a Happy New Year to you m'dear!

Thanks for your comments everyone (OC - you really are a treasure!!) and I hope the New Year is good to you all. Shame about your snow Mike, but I should confess that I have always wanted to experinece a White Christmas...with every Christmas card I write...
I am suffering from a nasty head cold at the moment, don't even feel like self-medicating so I must be sick!!
