Alphabe-Thursday letter F for frost

we normally don't have frost, but we did on Wednesday. BRRRRRR!


FSO: Red our postie

Despite all the internet and emails, there will always be snail mail, and our friendly postie. Our postie comes without fail, rain or shine, snow or hail.
When D was little, we would walk down our foot path, and sing:
Please Mr. Postman, please check and see, if there is a letter for me.

My D is grown and lives overseas, a letter or two would be nice, but our New Zealand Post just announced the postie will be delivering the snail mail every second day.

booze-free month for Dry July

Mocktail recipes designed by Bedford & Soda for those parents wanting to go dry this July - some 
amazing images can be found here.

I chuckle to myself when I see the anti smoking ad where a father was  in an embarrassing situation after catching his son smoking when he himself was a smoker and his son followed his bad example.

Leading local relationship therapist Leanne French who says Kiwi parents who decide to have a booze-free month for Dry July will not only be raising funds for a good cause, but also demonstrating important qualities to their kids.

“Children need positive role models, and what could be better than showing your kids that you can give up something you enjoy for a month in order to help others,” explains French.“Not only that, but it also demonstrates the process of setting a goal, achieving it, and feeling good about yourself for having done that - something else children need to learn about.”

For two years, my very young, beautiful, talented, clever and kind niece Katie to have stayed Dry for a month. It certainly was a very good sacrifice for a young person but she did it. I am sure it would have helped if she had the Mocktail recipes designed by Bedford & Soda.
