kate5kiwis: ... and together we will shine, shine, shine...


“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

... and together we will shine, shine, shine...

our lounge currently resembles a Where's Wally cartoon page:
spot the kids.

it's Kool that all of The Gang have had so much practice at folding and collating pamphlets for their Collective Delivery Run (stuffing precious trees into letter boxes *ouch* but it seems to be the easiest way for kids to earn money that doesn't originally reside in my pocket), cos do you see that beeeee-autiful *shine 07* bag at the front???
it's gonna have a whole swag of *delectable items* popped inside it.
in fact, two hundred and five bags are gonna have a whole swag of *delectable items* popped inside them... before friday.
and then, we'll be ready for shine.
i think.

EDIT: *friday update*
wooooo hoooooo!!!!!!!!

Hi! Just actually wanted to say hi - not really commenting on your blog - although well done on the chocolates (is that what you were writing about?) - oh no it was the bags that you were making up - well done with them too!!

How was Tuesday night? We are off to 'No Reservations' tonight, I am being picked up at 6pm which means that although I will do dinner, I wont be doing clean up, PJ change, teeth or bed time - YAY!! It is a real night off - my other nights off start at 7.30, and by then I have done all that...!!

Anyway - just wanted to say HI - it is a GORGEOUS day here in Auckland - probably much nicer than the BOP, we have been to the Zoo (and saw the Tiger man from the TV Zoo Programme - Ems was quite confused...) we probably have a better zoo than BOP, might go to the park this afternoon - our parks are definitely better...;)
Love you loads!
PS: The word 'bay' was in my word verification thing, and the letters 'LT' and we all know that 'LT' is short for left, so it's clear that you need to have "left bay (of plenty)"...it's a sign....!!lalol (that means 'lots and lots of love)

i can hardly see my lounge floor, it's full of *finished* bags YAHOO!!!

Shine is a women’s conference that my friend ang is running this weekend in The Sunny Bay, and The Gang are the *take home party bag* team… we’ve made all the sparklies and chocolate hearts and now we’ve filled the bags with stuff that the luvverly ladies will use tomorrow…. pen, pretty journal, drink, magazine, vouchers for facial etc…
lol at the *glossary* idea, actually “swag” is not a kiwi term lol, i think beachmama means the bags you can see with *shine* on them at the front of the photo…

Man talk about confusing a poor girl... firstly what does pfpfpf-p-f---fff----tt-t-t-ttt mean? And then you asked about "No Resos" and I am thinking 'what is that' but then I remembered that I went to 'No Reservations' and it all fell into place - we had a VERY busy cafe this morning and I am tired...that's my excuse.
I loved the movie - slightly predictable, but still fun with 6 women! Yup I cried - quite a bit actually, and then because Anne was laughing at me, I got the giggles. When they were eating the Tirimasu (??) and she got cream on her face, I turned to Anne and said (no word of a lie) "watch this, he will spot the cream wipe it off with his finger and then lick it" da da!! I should go into script writing!

Love you - we are off to the beach tomorrow - I just can't decide which one, we have so many to choose from. How many choices do you have? ;)

My word verification has 'dien' in it, like carpe diem, and we all know (thanks to Dead Poets Society)that it means 'seize the day' so I wonder what you should do to seize the day...?

pfpfpf-p-f---fff----tt-t-t-ttt is the sound i make laughing through my nostrils.

never go in against a sicilian when surf is on the line
cos we are talking about a one and a half hour radius aren’t we>>> it’ll take you at least that long to get to takapuna from your place:
but which surf beach can you get to within fifteen minutes???
*kate takes a bow and walks off stage holding the gold trophy high*

OH-Those are the best ladies conference bags I have ever seen. I want one frankly. I LOVE bags. I even got a dumb little blue bag with a stork on it at my 5K and I was a little too excited about it.
