Giving it away.....

Right now, I really wish I had twenty-one giveaways as I'd love to have given it to each and every one of the lovely people who entered. Reading all of the wonderful comments you left has given me such joy, and reinforced my belief that I am completely surrounded by loveliness. By the loveliness of you all.

In the end I drew this the old fashioned way, names in a hat, it somehow felt more authentic than pushing a button on random.org. which is what I've done in the past.

So without further ado....the winner of the Heaven is for Real book, Living Hope Center bracelet and Black Forest Chocolate giveaway is.........................


I cannot believe (but it's true!) that of all the 21 names Noah could have drawn out of that bowl, he drew out his dear friend Nikki - far out unreal! The funniest bit was that he asked me before I tasked him with this most important job he asked me "But how will I know the name that is written on there?" to which I replied "Mummy will help you read it out". But as he opened up the piece of paper, he took one look at it and said "Nikki!" recognising her name instantly despite my scrawly writing!

And thank you to everyone who participated. You're all total winners in my book!

I thought I'd leave you with a story from the weekend, a song and some photos....so nothing new there right LOL!

The weekend itself started with the usual shopping trip to Pak n Save with the boys on Saturday morning. As it was pouring with rain, we'd parked in the underground car park. As I got out of the car, I heard Alex Lloyd's song Amazing playing on the supermarket sound system. I hadn't heard this song in years. And oh the feel-good memories this song brought back of ten years ago, memories of me in my twenties in London living the young person's OE life. Not too many cares in the world other than working hard, loving my man, travelling the world and trying not to be too homesick for my true country back here in NZ.

It's hard for me to fathom that exactly ten years on, here I am, a married mama of two, living THIS beautiful life and blessed beyond belief. It truly is AMAZING!

These pics are all my favourites that I've printed out to update the Bobby Robin polaroid photo boards I made last year.

Enjoy xx

Congrats Nikki - sounds like it was very much meant to be :) How absolutely wonderful.

The slide show you've put together is breathtaking. Such an amazing family you are.

Charlotte was hanging over my shoulder watching and said, 'Mummy, are those by a proper photographer?'!

There you go... from the mouth of babes ;) x
