Isn't She lovely...isn't He wonderful...

Well it's the morning after my beautiful daughter Claire's engagement party...Claire and Rob...certainly a match made in heaven. So this is what it feels like to have a child prepare for marriage...and four more to go!! Such a great night we had...lots of friends and family, tho not quite enough dancing! What is it with us kiwis...too shy to get up and shake our groove thing! (unless the lights are low,low,low...) But we had lots of fun learning new things about Claire and Rob and random people offering 'pearls of wisdom'...(from the "claire - let him stop doing dishes long enough to go hunting!" the "learn each other's love language, and what makes them 'tick'") Great advice on all fronts, funny and serious! We shared dessert together - an abundance of berries, pavlovas, brandie snaps and fruit crumbles to be sure - we are DEFINITELY in New Zealand! haha...I even got to take an apple and rhubarb crumble home that was untouched...mmm...i feel a very unhealthy breakfast coming on!! (thanks Damian!) the countdown to the wedding...three months to go and so much to do! I just know it's going to be a beautiful goodbye fellow bloggers - time to have a cup of tea, a dish of crumble and enjoy the memories of last night
ciao for now...blessings to all...jessie

  1. Oh...the only thing missing from the engagement party, that would have made it PERFECT, was my family, who were too far away to travel (and then travel down/up again in three months for the wedding)...and there would SURELY have been more dancing if the Olsen sisters were there!! Bring on the wedding! ;)
