Where on earth has Bubble been? (pics)

Monday, April 29, 2013

I had an awesome 10 days with my boyfriend. I didn't even think about sparking, which is clear when I step on the scales. Up just under a kilo, which is not horrible considering all the eating out we did. I wanted to take him to my favourite places, and we met my friends at restaurants, so we ate out a lot. I also missed most of my usual exercise, but I am back to it this week!

We didn't take tonnes and tonnes of photos (too busy enjoying our time together) but we snapped a couple of some nice moments from the week

Like coffee at the Navy Museum

Then climbing North Head
City view on one side

Sea views on the other

(yes, we are in shorts and tshirts. At the end of April. In New Zealand. I don't know where winter is!)

On Sunday we went to Browns Bay to lay under a tree in the sun and watch the world go by

Oh, and we signed a tenancy agreement on our first house together (and the agreement specifies no firearms are allowed... We had a giggle because in NZ guns are so uncommon that we have never seen it specified before. It is due to the location of the house). It is a cute 2 bedroom cottage, and it is perfect for us. We move in in less than 3 weeks!

My back deck

My big backyard (I'm not mowing it, that's why I look happy!)

My fireplace in my lounge

My front porch (the only front shot I will post for safety reasons)

    What gorgeous photos, of the beautiful scenery as well as of the beautiful people! Congrats on the house. It looks lovely.'s the end of April here and it doesn't feel like it. We're much cooler than normal for this point in Spring. I'm not complaining because I don't like summer heat and humidity, and I'm sure it will be here soon enough.

    Well from what I can see, winter is here in the US in the Midwest somewhere. LOL

Beautiful shots! LOVE the house :o) My hubby's been to New Zealand a few times and that's where he'd like to retire us at. Your background is where my daughter lives (Frisco)

Thanks for sharing. emoticon
