us NZers were extremely ripped off with our "summer" this year - it rained a lot (and in fact it's raining again now...) so it was extra summer-sunshiney to receive this gorgeous hand-knitted helmet hat in the mail from Kristin, and then to receive a sunshiney award from the inspirational Jodi at Che & Fidel. thank you both!
with the award came some questions (which remind me a little of when 'Friendships Books' were all the rage - remember them? ):
this question always makes me nervous ever since the night JR came home raving about a simple but VERY accurate personality test he'd done and encouraging me to try it. so i did. and when i came to the 'fave colour' question i was tossing up between green and white for ages. finally i went with white and it turned out to be the difference between a reasonably pleasant personality and a really really UNpleasant one!! so from now i'm sticking with green (although i do really like white)
between 5 kids, the rats in my ceiling (vermin season!), the cat that eats baby chicks, chooks that poop on my deck and the pet lamb that shreds our young fruit trees, i prefer just pictures of animals at the moment!
::favourite non-alcoholic drink::
my morning flat white coffee made by JR.
7 seems pretty perfect at the moment :)
i find it hard to pass up a vintage floral
this is an impossible question but for scent it is hands down, no questions, freesias. i wouldn't mind if the very air i breathe smelt like freesias.
::favourite day of the week::
when JR has a day off and we skip school.
::facebook or twitter::
i'm really enjoying making new connections on twitter.
mothering, intentional parenting, raising adults, promoting the value of male-ness and affirmation of boys, positive childbirth, being the wind beneath JR's wings ;).......etc etc etc
::giving or receiving presents::
both! equally ;)
both! equally ;)
and passing on some sunshine to a few of those who've been with me from the start:
