Going for a ride on a big jet plane - hey hey - hey hey - hey hey

Yes lovelies,
it's that time again for my customary annual/bi-annual pilgrimage across the
(Tasman Sea for those that don't know our slang down under)
The kids and I are gunna take a ride on a big jet plane
and head back to New Zealand in just over a week
to hang out with the maddening crowd!
(that would be the family and all its extensions!!)
Am I excited?  Just a tad.
It's my way of re-connecting, re-charging and relaxing!
I can't wait to see my old stomping ground

(Mount Taranaki)
and hang out with people that I love and adore!
These past few weeks have gone so fast,
I have

been entertained by tigers

sorted, tagged and priced dresses for sale

participated in my first ever "Suitcase Rummage"
in Melbourne.  It was a huge day, up at 5am, drove 4 hours to Melbourne, got there early and thankfully parked the car right outside the front door!  Had time for a coffee break and then the girls and I lugged our suitcases (3) up the stairs and into the Thornbury Theatre to display our wares!
It was a fabulous day with good sales and lots of potential customers including a few orders after the fact!  Got to be happy with that :-)

a quick stop at the "oppie" and I scored a few pretties for more frock making!
Lucky my mum has a good sewing machine and overlocker so I am taking some pattern pieces with me just incase I have withdrawals!  I am secretly looking forward to scouring through a whole heap of NZ op shops!
Today I am packing my bags and tomorrow I head to Melbourne to meet up with a girlfriend
for 3 nights and 4 days of catching up, shopping, exploring and dining!  We haven't seen each other in around 5 years and the two of us back-packed our way around Europe in our hey day so it is sure to be a fun filled week with a dash of reminiscing!
I am going to be in NZ for 5 whole weeks so you may not see me here again until the end of January!
I promise when I get a chance I will be tuning into your blogs and making random comments here and there!  I'm kind of going off the grid for that time with no international roaming as it is so beedin expensive.
I hope you all have a fabulous time over the festive/silly season with lots of thrifty finds in between a wee bit of indulgance!
hugs to you all,
Dee xoxo
