Having a Peice of Home with Me

Hello Everyone!

You may or may not have noticed that I've been some what absent from my blog the past few months. 
Ooops, sorry! 
This is because we had my Nan over from the UK!
 If you weren't aware, I was born in the UK but now live in New Zealand. And because it's not the cheapest trip 'to and from', the time and memories I do have with my family are the most meaningful to me.

My Nan came over in December in preparation for my older sisters wedding on new years eve. It was all a very exciting time as you can imagine, but unfortunately that meant I barely had any time to sit down at my computer and write a blog post. But now that I'm here let me tell you all about it.

So first of course, my Nan. I still cant believe she flew half way across the world BY HERSELF to be here! She is amazing! I'm so glad she stayed as long as she did because the quality time we spent together was so important to me. Although she was here for a whole month, the time just flew by! I feel like there was so much more I wanted to show her, do with her, talk to her about; But maybe that will encourage me to start saving for a plane ticket of my own. Hmmm? 
The things we did do together though were lovely. Not only did we make icing flowers for my sister wedding cake, but she taught me how to cross stitch; Side note it's super relaxing! I made my first ever Christmas Cake with her, And also just the quality time we spent together, pottering around was nice.

Next, was the wedding! It was the most magical night, filled with love, and tears, and laughter. So many amazing memories were made that night, all of which I'll cherish forever. It's a night I'll remember for a long time, Except for the hours between 10pm to 12am. Yeah, those I'm going to have trouble remembering. ;)

So that's what has been happening if my life recently.
Again, I'm sorry the large gaps between blog posts, But I'm back now and ready to write until my heart's content.
