Just spent the afternoon with Jodie, messing around with gel pens! (They are SO beautiful.) I NEED to know who invented these pens as I intend to marry them! We spent (at least) 3 hours doodling on pieces of card. I don't think I have ever had more fun!

I Have decided to do my first blog post on my favourite place in the whole ENTIRE world. I swear this place has magical powers, as every time I go there it takes my breath away, it is that beautiful! The place I am blabbering on about is Tainui Rd. New Zealand. Unfortunately, I rarely visit as it is on the other side of the planet. (Which makes it a bit more difficult to get there!)
As a little girl I have many a fond memory of this beautiful place. The picture above is a photo taken from my grandparent's back garden. It shows "Mama's Island" a small yet magical island that can be accessed on foot when the tide is out. Despite only climbing the island once (wearing plastic bags over my light-up trainers!) I still remember sitting down and looking out to sea. It is a memory I would not swap for the world.
I can also remember making a bow and arrow, out of bamboo and flax, with Papa. Although it snapped SEVERAL times, it was the first time I was really proud of something I had made. (Perhaps because it had the ability to kill someone?!?!) As soon as I can, I plan to fly back there to create even more memories.
Thank you Tainui Rd. XXX
