"Hello, are you Sue?"

Yesterday while doing the supermarket shop I had the loveliest experience.  A lovely young woman stopped me and asked if I was Sue.  Why yes I am!!  Turns out she has been following my blog.  How fabulous is that?  New to New Zealand this year and keen to do the rounds of the charity shops our Hamilton has on offer.  So welcome to our beautiful little country Velvet and your dear little boy Oscar.

Hopefully we will meet again!!

 Blogging is grand!!

You all see me at play,
so here is a peek into my little workspace,
my cosy corner.

It was all Black and White
Spots and Stripes

After work today I bought a healthy looking sarnie (sandwich) and sat at Lake Rotoroa.  It has developed into a grey old day today which is a shame considering the Hot Air Balloons are in town this week.  Not a lot of Ballooning goes on when the weather turns grey.

All in all you're just another,
brick in the wall!!!
Love the views through the gaps in this one.

The sweetest little boy was feeding the ducks with his mum.  I remember doing this often when my lads were that small.  So nice to see the duck feeding tradition is still alive.

No matter what the weather
it is a lovely spot.

Today I wore Purple!

Tomorrow I am off to the beach for a couple of days.

This time I plan to check out the caravans and the the fairs, armed with my camera and a few spare dollars.  Here is what is on offer the two days that I will be in town. (borrowed from the Beach Hop website)

Goody said...

Of course you're famous-and fabulous!

Indeed the gloom will lift when it sees you in your regal purple outfit-it wouldn't DARE to rain on you.

Have fun at the festival-sounds like a great time.

Raewyn said...

How cool to meet one of your followers like that! Love your purple outfit - perfect for the day:-) Have a fun weekend!

Vix said...

Isn't it strange when that happens? Lovely though!
Two ace outfits to brighten up the grey.
I remember the fab photos from that festival last year, looking forward to more! xxx

Curtise said...

Fabulous in black and white, and in purple!
So funny being spotted from your blog; a woman I served in the charity shop this week asked me if I had a blog and said she recognised me. It's a weird feeling, I tend to assume that only the people who comment actually look at the blog, so it comes as a shock to realise there are all sorts of other folk checking it out!
Looks so pretty around the lake. xxx
