A Small Boy, A Huge Smile


New Zealand teenage girls and young ladies  in  the years to come,  watch out for the young lad with dark hair, big brown eyes and a lovely charming way. He stole my heart, what about yours??

Rodrigo is in NZ with his Mum and Dad,Dad has a new position here, and the little lad is so friendly, comes to a TOTAL stranger so easily.

His Mum’s blog is on my list, check it out for lovely goodies, ( I hope the Etsy shop opens again next  year ) photos from abroad, and some NZ scenes too.



soon I'll be walking


   Look at my smile

We hope  we can be  NZ friends for the little boy, ( and Mum and Dad) and see him walk, talk and grow up here in NZ.

Life continues to be busy here, Hugh is well, but we know that life has changed, for both of us, and are aware of limitations, future surgery, and the “ Bucket List”, that  is always on his mind. The tick off starts next year with a re-visit to Piropiro to continue a photo shoot of the cycle track , starting  with the  longest and highest suspension bridge in NZ which was under construction last March, and as I understand, is finished.

He can take the photos and test the bridge, I will watch.

Quotation of the day, author unknown

“ If you love someone, put their name in a circle,

for a heart can be broken, but a circle never ends”

Greetings from Jean

he sure is a cutie. So what is on YOUR bucket list for 2013?

What a beautiful child, Jean. It will be fun to watch him grow.
Good to hear Hugh is fine. Yes, things change somewhat especially initially. But once strength comes back and he discovers what he can do and what his limits may be, things will settle!!
Sounds like a great photo shoot to look forward to.

Yes, Rodrigo is gorgeous, and so friendly for a little chap.Leanne, my list, well I still want to do the SIT Diploma in Digital Photography,finish ANY/ALL of the quilting and sewing projects,and those two will keep me fully occupied all year. Jim, yes a great place, but I hate heights, and even more, almost panic and do freeze if I step onto a swing/suspension bridge.But lovely trees and bush there, streams,rabbits, birds, a bush robin I hope to get better pics of, so I will be busy there too. Greetings from Jean, p.s. 33C here today!!!
