Chasing Rainbows

Just another picture perfect evening over Ahuriri
 I can't believe it's been over a month since I have posted - woeful!  I could waffle on with excuse of how busy I have been (all true by the way), but I won't.  What I am most pleased about is that 2014 is proving to be vastly better than it's predecessor for the MacBuscke family, so life is good.

Renly taking time to recover from his sore paw last month
In fact a few milestones have been reached.  Renly Baretheon - Bulldog, turned one late in January.  He has certainly lived up to his Royal moniker, strutting around with as much gravitas as he can muster, even when he a sore paw.
Not a bad wee steak cooked for our anniversary dinner
Dr. Phil & I celebrated our ten year wedding anniversary.  I can't quite fathom where the decade has evaporated to, but 10 years, two businesses, two children & two pets later here we are.

Louis 'helping' with the painting of the new school mural
The start back to school has also bee excellent for both boy's.  Louis has finally found his groove with school and is the happiest we have seen him for a very long time.  All the hard work done by the school around understand Louis autism & it's associated friends has now meant we are all having a more relaxed time & my visits to the Principals office are now purely social.  Hugo on the other hand just loves all the social elements that school has to offer.  Being the arbiter of Hugo's social calender is a full time job & if he had his way he'd have play overs every afternoon & with sleep overs every weekend!

The cardigan for me is done in this fabulous blue.
I have been keeping the needles pretty busy the last few months.  I have just finished a cardigan for me for the winter in the most fabulous jewel blue & yesterday say the first of the knitting for the boys teachers completed.
The Ever After Cowl I have done for Hugo's teacher Ruby
This weekend I am at Unwind in Dunedin, so I have to finalise what knitting to take down south. I need to find that perfect combination of project - one that can be done whilst vast amounts of talking is taking place, and imbibing done.  Trust me, this is a much greater challenge than it sounds!


  1. Have fun in Dunedin, You will need all the knitting you can for the cold south!!

  2. I didn't realise you had a child on the autism spectrum; my youngest is there too and also doing well at school. Thank goodness for a team who are willing to work with our boys, it makes a huge difference!
