kate5kiwis: making waves


“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

making waves

my friend Sarah lives in Canada of the melting snows.
i first met her a year ago and we did a Global Swap: i made her a kiwi surf necklace and she made me a gorgeous little bag and they waved at each other as they flew through the air.

since then, Sarah has been ever so busy setting up shop and expanding her range of haute couture and recently she has even been making waves in the dancing scene.
when we came home from camping there was another wee *wave* from Sarah waiting for me:
and then a wee note:
Oh, I'm so glad it arrived! Surprise!!!
I'm glad you like it, too! :) Genuine Swarovski crystals inspired by your pics and writings of the Sunny Bay - one of a kind just for you. A special Mummy gift.

it's gorgy Sarah, and it's nearly tshirt weather here too so it'll be luffly to still be wearing *surfy summer* during the w*nt*r (can't say that word, might jinx the Sunny Bay weather lol)

and while i'm on the topic of this whole waves thang, watch this clip of some Kiwi Lads making waves in Europe, D18's uni mates have nicknamed him *Jemaine* (cos he looks rather like the guy on the left - whose name is Jemaine lol. uh, hopefully D18's too busy studying to be doin' much Business. hope i haven't jinxed that either)

These Kiwi Lads call themselves Flight of the Conchords (click that link if ya feel like a giggle) and they are h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s, yep: buckle your seatbelts Dorothy (guess the movie line) and get yerself ready for some good ole "kiwi bloke" humour:
