A bit of a catch up...

I seem to have got super busy this last week.    Thursday was my birthday and we went out to dinner with my son and his partner.   We had a good night with lots of laughter and great food.  Here is a picture of the gorgeous gift they gave me




Then over the weekend we went with our friends to Managwhai.  Haven't been up for a while.  The weather forecast was not looking good, but in the end, it was beautiful weather.  I went out for a walk on both days... Saturday a 50 min walk and today a 80 min walk.  I got some great photos of the walks

  A pair of Mallard ducks 
 Cute little bach at the end of our street
Harbour on Saturday.

and today I walked over to the Surf Beach 
It's hard to see but there were three dolphins surfing the waves with all the surfers.   Worth the hard walk to get there.  

We also went out for lunch at a nearby cafe for a lovely lunch.    After we got back I spend some time colouring and making some nail polish marbling I saw on Splitcoaststampers.  



I had a great time doing this colouring.  I'm loving the classes I am taking at Kit and Clowder.  I am learning so much about using my Prismacolor pencils. 

Thanks for taking the time to visit me.   Hope you all had a great weekend too.

Your colouring is amazing, as is your marbling.
