britmuminnz There's nothing more freeing and energising to me, than being on my own in nature. I stood alone on the rocks of Wellington's south coast, with the seals, seagulls and a bumble bee (that liked my blue camel pack, of course!) for company, gazing out over the Cook Strait and the fishing boats, to the South Island. Oh New Zealand, you are a beauty! xxx 1h

britmuminnz So many #NZ #furseals at #RedRocks on #Wellington #southcoast this #winter and it's breathtaking to see them all (just not so great to smell them!). Anyway, back to running. Taking a moments break on my half marathon run this morning :-) 3h

britmuminnz I couldn't think of a more perfect way to start a day. After the #schoolrun I grabbed a latte & took my dog, a book & a ball to the beach. I sat on a rock & threw that ball over and over again, whilst reading aloud poems to the waves. My dog would return with the ball, tirelessly, dropping it at my feet and wait for me to play. I'd finish my poem, take a sip of coffee and throw that ball high into the blue winter's sky. Happy Wednesday! 5h
  •   cicadacreek Love the sound of that! What a way to refuel yourself reading aloud is something I only do for the girls, such a good reminder that I should do it for myself too 3h

britmuminnz My day, after the school run, has been talking over coffee with hubby & playing tunes on the piano till the clouds parted for a moment to entice me out for a walk. A walk on the muddy trails with my dog, trying to stay upright as I jogged along over tree roots, puddles and fallen branches. Returning home to a warm shower (for my mud covered fur baby and me!). Lunch of baked beans on toast and a moment to read & catch up on some laundry. Now time to return to school and pick up my girls. Time for afternoon tea, homework and cuddles. And soon time for a lovely Pinot Noir (thanks to hubby). #winter #myday #feeling-happy 1d

britmuminnz Have a great week! After the school run & listening to a music performance from one of my daughter's classes, I went on a fabulous 4.5 mile run with my dog. #thisismygym #ShareMeWLG #IslandBay #Wellington #walkways #townbelt 2d

britmuminnz I've taken this photo in different seasons, over several years, with so many wonderful friends and family. Yesterday I was there with two of my daughters and of course I just had to take the photo, again! #ShareMeWLG #WhyWellington #cablecar 3d

britmuminnz #lights in the #cablecar #tunnel #Wellington - so fun! We didn't think the cable car still had the lights up in the tunnels, so it was a wonderful surprise yesterday in the #BotanicalGarden :-) 3d

britmuminnz It's a good #Sunday morning & hubby gets home from overseas work tomorrow night! Yippeeeee! Meanwhile, my latte is looking good & I have made my oldest daughter a treat for being an awesome help with her younger sisters this past week. Happy weekend! #latte #fluffy #Vibiemme #art #shanehanson 3d
  •   twoboysandagirl My big boy also bring awesome this morning, the other too hmmm, I feel like a referee, my hubby at work too. Have a good day! 3d
  •   everydaymanager Yay for marshmallows and sprinkles! 3d
  •   robertnpmk42 @britmuminnz complete coffee machine envy. Started looking it up straight away. Maybe some day. 3d
  •   britmuminnz @robertnpmk42 I know, very spoilt. It cost a fortune, but we worked out we were spending over $10, sometimes $20 on coffees a day and over a couple of years we will have paid the machine off with the savings! We used to have coffee out all the time and it was a valuable part of our lifestyle prior to children and when they were younger (& took naps in buggies!), but now I make myself one to take with me on my school run and then make one in the avo - as I'm at home. 3d
  •   arthur_nz Those coffees look great 3d
  •   britmuminnz Taste great thanks @arthur_nz only I'm no good at doing the fancy ferns, hearts and swirls! Hubby is in training ;-) and does an impressive job. Thankfully he is home today! 2d
  •   arthur_nz @britmuminnz Main thing is they taste good️ Struggle to get a good coffee around here in the UK 😬🇳🇿 2d
