I hope everyone has a fantabulous New Years! I stayed up till 12am and saw/heard fire works and lots of ‘yahoo’s’ from the neighbours. I didn’t party this year because I didn’t really feel like it (shocking!).
I ended up spending the day up at my place in Stanmore Bay. My sister, her boyfriend and my mum and dad came up for a picnic. It was hot but we didn’t go for a swim. My sister was kind of scared because a Great White Shark had been spotted in the Waitemata ( even though that is in a completely different place to Stanmore Bay).
I paddled in the water but didn’t swim. I wanted to get back to the shade because it was just too hot to be in the sun for much longer.
I managed to get one photo before we hopped over the hot sand (burnt my poor feet in the process).
I’m wearing a sarong dress, togs and holding my trusty pair of jandels. You can’t see me very well because the sun was in the wrong place!
I love summer – means time with family, time in the sun/swimming, bbq-ing and fun!
My favourite tree: Pohutukawa
You know it’s summer when you can’t get a parking spot in front of your house, because every man and his dog has decided to go to the beach!
I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Years.
