Summer how I love you!

Hey everyone!

Well I have to say that I am loving my summer break so far! 6 glorious weeks of sun, swimming, barbecues, river floats, pavlova, and summer fruit!  Love.

Sorry to those of you in the heart of winter! I am a little jealous of the snow I am seeing everywhere.  It doesn't snow in most parts of New Zealand in winter, so I don't get to have the wonderful cold stuff unless I travel to the mountain, which is ok by me, as I quite enjoy being warm!!

Anyway I was going to link up and share my old Christmas snaps, but I've been enjoying the sun to much! I will gather them up and share this coming week though.

I did want to come by and let you know of a massive giveaway that is coming up on Boxing Day! I have reached a few milestones, and want to share the love, which is what Boxing Day is all about.  A few people have so generously donated some wonderful products to this giveaway, and there will be a huge gift voucher prize too, which will be announced when the giveaway goes live.
I'm looking for a couple more donations, to really make this thing huge, so if you are able to, and would like to be involved, please go ahead and fill in the google docs form below, and I will get everything ready to go live Boxing Day (New Zealand time, so really think of it as a Christmas giveaway if ya want!!)

Thanks so much everyone! Have an awesome Christmas!

  1. Erin, we are having a huge ice storm in Ontario, Canada! It has been freezing rain for two days now. The tree branches are heaving down to the ground and breaking off. It's unbelievable! Enjoy your nice weather... I'm super jealous!

  2. Today in Alabama it's been 75. Needless to say, we're getting some bad weather when the cold front comes out way. I still have a hard time comprehending the fact that people in the southern hemisphere are having SUMMER right now (even though it feels like it here)! We have two weeks off for winter break. Do you all get two weeks for your winter break since you get six weeks for summer break? It's confusing for this simple southerner :)

    1. Hey Allee!
      Thanks for stopping by. We get 6 weeks (ish, give or take a few days) for summer, then two weeks at Easter, two weeks in July for winter, then two weeks in September. In between those holidays we have 4 10 week terms. (Averaged out, sometimes we will have an 11 or 12 week term, and other times an8 or 9 weeker. It all depends on when Easter falls that year.)

      I get confused too! My sister is studying in Oregon, and just left for Denver for Christmas today, so it is strange skyping her and seeing snow outside the window!
