What was the first thing the MOML said to me when we woke up on Tuesday morning??
Was it -
"Happy Anniversary dear"
or maybe -
"25 years! Haven't we done well?!"
It was -
"You should put a picture of your new hen house door
on your blog!!!!!"
So here it is -
Very flash and he was obviously pleased with the job he'd done, much improved on the previous door.
So there you are, things that excite men!!
But we have reached 25 years of wedded bliss so I managed to drag the MOML away from the farm for a couple of days (it did take a few months of careful nagging). We went down to Auckland to stay in the Sky City, NZ's tallest building (actually we stayed in the not-as-tall Sky City Motel which is right next door to the very-tall Sky City Tower which contains the Sky City GRAND hotel, where we didn't stay!) (hope I didn't loose you there!).
Talk about country bumpkins come to town!! The car wash decided to start early (before the MOML's window was up!) then cut out altogether mid-wash, then after several circuits 'around the block' in the middle of the city, we managed to head into the complex the wrong way, had an army of valets come out to sort us out and take our car away from us, to park safely (somewhere), for a few days!!
After a bit of a rest after all that drama, we headed off down the street for a bit of a look around. Imagine my delight when I found this gorgeous book!!
I HAD TO HAVE IT!!
I haven't had a chance to read it properly yet but it is a collection of stories and memories that 'celebrate quilts and quilting heritage'. Beautiful photos of quilts and paintings which include quilts. It was actually printed in 2003 so some of you may have already seen it, but it was a real find for me!
So that's Part 1 of our few days away....more next time!
