No blog posts. No bueno.

This week was always going to be a busy week, but I hate the idea of going without a post for the week.

Our visitors made it safe to Hawkes Bay! Last night we treated them to the best Fish n Chips in the area (apparently) with raw fish, mussels, scallops and paua from HB seafoods. Their taste test was minuscule and I'm glad I told them after they ate most of the paua that it was basically a sea slug. When you say seafood in NZ, it does not necessarily mean cooked.

They headed out with Tyler this morning to spend the day in Napier. I don't know that there's much to do in Napier that would take a whole day, but they'll find something. At least the weather is behaving.

I had plans to cook great meals, but I'm contaminated with flu-like symptoms and cooking right now is not ideal.

I also got in trouble for enrolling Edge earlier than I said at school. You can't win with the powers that be. It takes sacrificing your first born to get her into home school and the exact same to get her out. She has the rest of the week off to finish her current home school courseware .. which is sewing.

Sewing vs Fractions.
Which would you choose.

More later.

I'm so happy to have found your blog (via the Kiwi Mummy Blogs site). Love that you got your guests to taste the food before really explaining what they were eating!
I'd definitely pick sewing over fractions ;)
