Things I'm Loving: The Awesomeness of LEGO, A Dog's Show Memories, and Stunning Sand Art

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something you can be thankful for..no matter how simple it is.

Feel good inside 
With so much icky stuff that goes on out there in the big wide world, scenes like this do a lot to restore my faith in humanity. I know it's only an advert but even so.....I dare ya not to feel a few tears lurking after watching!

Sand like you've never seen it
I couldn't believe the amazing performance of this artist - her incredible and unique talent won Ukraine's Got Talent a few years back. This is her interpretation of World War II. Mesmerising. And talented with a capital T. Wow.

Things you didn't know about NZ
Loved this interesting set of facts about NZ - some things I knew but some I definitely didn't!

Love ya royals
I don't know about you but I thought Wills and Kate were just top notch. They didn't put a foot wrong, they were elegant, enthusiastic, good sports, embraced our Kiwi culture and were all class. It was a shame about the weather, with them encountering rain on just about every outing they had but they took it all in their stride. I hightailed it down to Civic Square for their walkabout and got a very quick shot of them with the Mayor near the Town Hall. I would be very proud to have them as my King and Queen one day. Republic - schmapublic!

The Lego Movie
'Everything was awesome' about this movie. You'll get that in joke if you've seen it. It was SO funny, SO clever, SO cool. And it had a lovely underlying human story as well. We'd been looking forward to seeing the movie for close to a year from when we saw the first trailer for it and it totally lived up to expectations.

A Dog's Show
Who watched and remembered the classic dog show trials on TV growing up? This was classic Sunday night TV right there. We would watch it while eating dinner before going out to church in the evening. When I was explaining to the boys about it, I found myself humming the theme tune pretty well. Here's a peek:

Hope you and yours are enjoying what is yet ANOTHER long weekend here in NZ.....whoop whoop!
