Day 06: A book I’m reading

November 9th, 2012 | Posted by Andie in Ramble - (0 Comments)

Since Matthew’s been born, I’ve been pretty slack at reading books. Most of my reading tends to be done on my iPhone while I’m feeding him, especially those feeds in the early days when I would be up at all random hours, and I unfortunately don’t have books on my phone. Currently, I’m slowly making … Read more

Day 05: My hometown

November 8th, 2012 | Posted by Andie in Ramble - (0 Comments)

Auckland is a pretty big place. It’s not so much a home town as it is a giant city sprawled out over a bunch of land. But it’s where I’ve always lived, so can’t complain. Specifically I associate myself with East Auckland, growing up and living in a couple of different areas over the course … Read more

Day 04: A friend I adore

November 7th, 2012 | Posted by Andie in Ramble - (0 Comments)

I thought about this for a bit, and while there are a few friends I’d love to write about, I’m going to stick with the friend I chose to marry. After having been together for almost 10 years, Rob and I have many stories. Some are boring, some are private, some I love sharing with … Read more

Day 03: Something I never leave the house without

November 6th, 2012 | Posted by Andie in Ramble - (0 Comments)

Usually when I’m going out, I’m taking Matthew with me. This involves taking the diaper bag filled with, well, diapers, wipes, food, spare clothes etc etc. As you can imagine, it’s a small suitcase worth But when I don’t have to take Matthew with me, I always, always take my phone. Usually it’s my phone, … Read more

Day 02: A Favourite Movie

November 6th, 2012 | Posted by Andie in Ramble | Videos - (2 Comments)

As an adult I don’t really have a favourite movie. There are a number of favourites I have, which if I had the time I would be more than happy to watch over and over again. My all time favourite though, since I was a kid, is Aladdin. I remember watching it on VHS over … Read more

Day 01: A place I’d like to travel

November 5th, 2012 | Posted by Andie in Ramble - (0 Comments)

Image Source I was never big on travelling when I was younger. Not for long periods of time anyway. A lot of kiwis head over to England for their OE’s and all the stories I had really heard were about kiwis who spend a lot of time at the pub and have very little money … Read more

Opps, it’s already 5 Days into November. I came across this a bit late for the beginning of November, but thought it would be a fun exercise to do for the month. I’m planning on keeping each post short and sweet. You can also keep up with everyone else participating via the twitter hash tag: … Read more

Matthew – 1 Year 30 Weeks Old

November 4th, 2012 | Posted by Andie in Matthew - (0 Comments)

There can be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Matthew is my child. He LOVES his chocolate. Matthew still has some Easter Egg (yes, I’m aware Easter was 4 months ago, he got given a number of them) hanging around in the fridge and one is currently open and in a sealed bag. The other … Read more

Matthew – 1 Year 29 Weeks Old

November 3rd, 2012 | Posted by Andie in Matthew - (0 Comments)

Playgroup was fun this week. They had a face painter in to do some absolutely amazing works of art on the kids. I’d learnt only the previous week before though that Matthew won’t allow for his face to be painted, and fair enough as well, he’s a bit too young to comprehend what is really … Read more

Ambury Farm Day

A bit ago I heard about Ambury Farm Day, which was a free day the council was putting on for families. I thought it would be a fun day out, give Matthew a chance to see some animals up close, but Rob ended up working so Mum decided to come along. In the morning Mum … Read more
