“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

*party party party*

There's a global party goin' on:

I know what I said about this blog bein'
just for me'n'mine, but...

someone said *party* and... being such an
extrovert, I couldn't resist the invitation.

If ya fancy a boogie and wanna join
The Ultimate Blog Party too..
just click the party-link on the sidebar...

*drum roll*
and now for the intro's:
I'm Kate !!!
*three air kisses*
I love my gorgeous Hubby.
My kids are D17, R13, J11, S9, M5...
yep, four lads and a girlie-girl (that's the five kiwis).
We make our home in The Sunny Bay of Plenty,
in New Zealand.

I love to create stuff, make jewellery, hang with friends, go to the beach, drink fine wine and eat
good food... i have a love affair with all things french, and espressos, and my three youngest boys teach me at home, lol. I also love to party.

But that's not all.... the rest is blogged somewhere here... it's our beautiful life.
I'm lookin' forward to meeting you and yours !!!!!

Hi Kate (shaking hand in the air), nice to meet you and your family. I think it is awesome that you make jewellery. I only did once piece thus far in my life... I love the beach (my favorite place on earth), but live currently in the desert. I guess your kiddos keep you on your toes :)

Have a wonderful day...

Hi from the party pooper.
Mothers should be partying quietly: remember, "if grown ups like it it must be nice".
We don't want the kiddos kicking their heals up too high do we !

Did you start having kids when you were 8? You look way too young to have a 17 year old. Have a great party!

Hello from the blog party! I bet we'd get along smashingly! I loved learning from my kids, all of whom are very science minded. I don't like the mess of the experiments, but they sure had fun!
