“Vision- the more we engage the world, the clearer our vision becomes…

(The).. discipline of cramming your vision into a frame and make it fit. “

Baby shower/stork party/ooievaars-tee


Today was Stella, my daughter in law’s baby shower. The house was decorated in a wonderland of owls, toadstools, balloons and sweet treats.

Pressies galore

Production line – Hard work


Hard work? Not at all, but very time-consuming. Concentrating is also very important.

Last weekend my son and I worked on an order of 100 raspberry pi boards.

Visit the business blog for more information.

We made  10 bundles halfway on Saturday, 10 on Sunday.

Tuesday evening we finished all 20 off, ready to go to be soldered on Wednesday!

They still need to be tested before they can be sent to the customer.

We did a great job!

Poultry Show


14+15 May 2016- Poultry Show, Upper Hutt, New Zealand

There was a good variety of pigeons, ducks, chicken and some budgies.

My husband loved rollers. We always had some. The ones on show reminded me about the rollers we had more than twenty  years ago.

 

 

 

 

Some pigeons on show.

Some chickens

The top row middle photo shows a chicken which you can’t recognise the front from the back.

Eggs were also on display.

There was also a crafty competition

Use and decorate eggs.
