NZSU Pics 29 March 2015

First things first much love and hugs to Barbz Bicknell, who many of you know.  Barbz is in hospital after having two heart attacks. Take care Barbz and rest, we will all be sending you prayers and positive thoughts.

Well this week I'm writing up our blog while the final of the cricket is still being played and I'm a nervous wreck, so far tonight's game seems as though it will be a lot more difficult to win. 
I've been visiting one of our sons and a grandson in Christchurch this weekend, we've had a great weekend, it's wonderful to spend time with our youngest grandson he is an absolute pet.
I hope you all have a fabulous week heading up to Easter, the beginning of the School holidays and the last week of "Sale-A Bration".
If you're travelling next weekend be careful on the roads and stay safe.

Hi Stampers, I hope those of you experiencing the beginning of the storm in the North Island are safely tucked up indoors with your family. As I write this blog the wind is whistling around our house making quite a commotion and I understand that the worst won't hit us here in Auckland until midnight or later, so batten down the hatches people. Send good thoughts and prayers to all those affected in the Pacific Islands especially Vanuatu.
I hope your week goes well.

As we continue to enjoy our Summer, spare a thought for our fellow Stampin' Up Demo's in Queensland and the USA who are experiencing extremely harsh weather at the moment. If you follow any blogs/web sites in these parts of the world, send a wee message of support.
Have a wonderful week, Happy Stamping.

Many of you will be looking forward to "Stamp Camp" next weekend; looking at the agenda I see that as usual it's going to be an exciting time for everyone. 
Julia Leece has put a great spreadsheet on the forum to cover all the supplies that we would need to take if possible, don't forget to name everything you take and it's always a good idea to bring your checklist along so that you are sure to take everything home at the end of the weekend.
Looking forward to seeing many of you next weekend.

Have a wonderful week everyone.
