Busy couple of weeks 

I haven’t blogged for a while, I’m not really sure why I have been doing a lot, so there is stuff to share. In fact only last Sunday I came back from a week away in beautiful Auckland NZ where my sister and I had so much fun exploring the North Island and climbing every summit we could find. The views were spectacular mind you. 
   
    
    
   
Soccer season has started again and after the initial hiccups of ensuring everyone has registered and paid up etcc the season is underway. I would love to be able to report that the season has started with a couple of wins under the boys belts but alas it hasn’t. But it’s early days and there have been some great signs. 

   
 Boxing is better than ever and today I purchased my very first pair of beautiful pink leather boxing gloves!! No more cheap ill fitting gloves for me. These beauties will mould to my hand shape and help me improve my technique, or so I hope.

   
 So even though I may not be posting as much, I am still enjoying reading everyone’s blogs and catching up on your news.

Built to NOT last 

  
 Woke up this morning to find that our fridge has decided to stop working – just one more thing to add to that ever growing long list of things that have gone wrong of late- fortunately we were able to move all the perishable stuff over to the beer fridge in the garage. Now we need to decide if it’s worth getting someone out to see if they can repair it or buy a new one – sometimes repairs are just too costly and let’s be honest nowadays things are not built to last.
