Murray and Alistair decided to tak an afternoon trip up to our local ski field Mount Hutt which is about anothe 25 minutes drive from the township of Methven where I kind of grew up around.

Snowfall July 2008

Well after thinking we would have a Winter free of snow this winter we got some on this last Saturday July 5th. It wasn't as much as in June 2008 but it was enough and could have been a lot worse especially with the blizzard conditions it was causing around the county.
I was out at my respite work and was panicking about thinking that I could have been snowed in there but thankfully Evelyn came back from town earlier and this allowed me to get back home again.
Unfortunately for me my respite work out of town has now ended as the lady concerned was going into permanent care from today.
Murray took some photos on the camera of the snow as it happened over the couple of hours at lunchtime Saturday that it fell. I am enclosing them with this particular post for all to see.
Not as bad as I know some of my American internet friends get but still Snow after all.

Another week gone

I'm back again can't believe that another week has sped by yet again.
In some respect its been a tough week work wise for me so am glad that the school holidays are upon us again as I don't really mind doing the term clean as long as I get a good run doing it.
Haven't done a lot in stamping this week apart from doing this accordion book for a friend's birthday and making a birthday card for my step son who turns 17 tomorrow and is coming to spend the holidays with us.
I'm looking forward to my weekend of extra work this weekend as wellas with this being the third month now that I have done it I am more confident about it all.

Ok time for some pics of the work done this week. Sit back and enjoy.
