Hello internet!
Just been across the road this morning to visit my honey, Mark. Haven't shared much about him, but he's my next door neighbour so he's quite handy :)
And yes, we've moved the wedding forward to August the 16th. So only about 2 months or so to go.
I just had to jump onto my blog and share this though...
Isn't it nice to be loved? And cherished?
After all I've been through, do you know how it feels to have a grown man literally skip back down the driveway after seeing you off because he can't believe how lucky he is? Literally pinch himself because he can't believe he actually got you?
And to have a God who put it all together even though you were dead set on not marrying because you were convinced marriage sux and all men are arseholes?
And my wedding will be very symbolic and special, and glorify God to the max!

Ok, long story short people, I haven't been blogging coz I'm totally in love people. You're lucky coz even facebook doesn't have the privilege of this information but I 'm totally besotted. That's why I haven't been blogging, I've been other wise engaged. Actually, literally engaged. We set a date for March, but if we can't hold on we'll be bringing it forward, coz we're holding back if you know what I mean, and I've never had anyone love me enough to do that. It's called "respect" apparently, something I haven't really had in the past.

Lucky me! :)

So I'm sitting here at the computer just now, waiting to wake up, and Catherine comes up to me and asks me what 'ching chong' means. It's a racist term Catherine. "What's racist?" So I just spent the last minute or two trying to explain to Catherine aged 9 what racism is. I guess that's pretty cool aye? She didn't know. Well, we live in South Auckland, a melting pot of cultures. I don't know why I never explained this stuff to her before... it's just been christianity all the way I guess. I remember trying to explain to her what feminism is... but it just went totally over her hear as well.
Anyway, I thought I'd squeeze in a little blog post before I head off :)

I tagged my cousin in this image on Facebook by the way... he lives in Takapuna and I live in South Auckland.... gotta laugh.

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire

So I spent another couple of blissful days up on our bach roof, painting it. How come life's been so good lately? The pessimist in me says, don't worry, shitty times are just around the corner haha. But for now, life's good and I'll just enjoy it while I've got it.

Man! Finally finished the Doyle wall! All done in paint by hand... no pounces, (which are pieces of paper with the lettering all copied from an overhead projector).. nope, all marked up by hand from a 10% drawing. Can you tell I'm happy about that?

Speaking of happy. Man! Yesterday was the best day I ever had! I can't get over it. And I spent all day on a roof! So don't ask me why it was so good. It just was.

It's the roof at our bach. I took plenty of 'before' shots, but no 'after' shots, coz it was late and I had to shoot off. I hope to get it done by winter but who knows. At least I got all the rusty bits done and painted over, and I plan to do the rest a section at a time, coz I can only make it up there on Thursdays basically.

Happy St. Patricks day, in New Zealand!

Cyclone Lusi was a bit of a fizzer... we went in the parade... it rained alittle bit as you can see in some of the photos... Catherine danced. She didn't want to at first, but I made her and she was fine. We had a good day and even though I skipped church to go, God helped me in so many ways, like finding where to go when I have absolutely no sense of direction and would have wound up in totally the wrong place if other dancers hadn't turned up at  just the right time. Yes, God is with me in the drunken rowdy mobs of Auckland viaduct too. Hee hee. We may skip school next year too... it was fun.

So day one of the big cyclone. Someone put this up on facebook... I thought I'd share...

Just a bit rainy and windy really.
Hey, I just noticed they spelt 'will' wrong. Haha. Anyways...

For those worried about us here, not much to worry about really. I think other parts of the country got hit a bit worse, but as usual Auckland got off lightly.
