We're famous (well kind of)!

Here it is... the story in last weekend's Canvas magazine, in the New Zealand Herald.

Meanwhile, back in Auckland, it's been a busy time with Nana visiting from Brisbane.
The kids have enjoyed having some special Nana time, and catching up on cuddles.
Each day, in-between finishing work and school run time, G. and I usually hit the shops.
We found a really cool fashion store on Manukau Road, Epsom, called T'da which sells, and I quote, "fabulous clothes for curvaceous women".
I was loving the size guide:

In nearby Mt Eden, we found Antique Alley, an Aladdin's Cave of old jewellery, chinaware, coins, and pretty much anything you could think of. Seriously, I was scared to move lest I send the whole lot tumbling down in the style of a Russian forklift driver! And G. was thrilled to be able to pick up a few bargains to add to her collection back home.

The shelves were packed!

In fact, pretty much all available space was taken up with beautiful old things.

Another antique shop, this time Yvonne Sanders Antiques, back on Maukau Road, Epsom.
Nana found a few more beautiful pieces here too.
Does anyone else have any fabulous shops they want to share?

Hello and congratulations on your recent 'fame'!

I was very excited to read the article and find some fabulous links to other Mummy bloggers in New Zealand. So thanking you! Keep up the great work. I love reading about Auckland, your experiences as an expat and the adventures you get up to with your family.

Best wishes,
