It has been a super busy last couple of months, and time...well it just ran away on us! I finished my Semester 2 exam and assignments passing with great marks (phew!) and now in the middle of Semester 3 with my next assignment due in mid Jan so I will continue over the holidays to chip away at the work for the paper I am doing.
In November I completed my first Triathlon and I have my next this Sunday in which I am feeling prepped and ready to race :) MrW and I have also competed in several cycling races over the past month including our favourite ride around Lake Taupo - 160km for MrW and half the lake for me at 73km with great results :) We have our next cycling event a few weeks after Christmas, so after the Triathlon this weekend I will have a quiet week to recover and then another couple of harder training weeks before the event. Luckily it's a local ride so we don't have to travel to far.
Here are a few snaps of me completing the triathlon :) It was perfect weather and I came in at 1hr 26mins for the Sprint Distance (500m Swim, 20km Ride, 5km Run). My goal for Sunday is to come in 6mins faster.....I have been training hard ;) Fingers crossed!

|I had so much fun!|
We hope to go camping over the holidays for a few days on the lawn of a friends bach by the beach, otherwise we will be spending the holidays doing day trips and getting the long awaited jobs completed around here. The boys are tired from their year at school and so we are looking forward to a quiet holiday to recharge the batteries.
Well I can smell my lemon cake cooking so it must be nearly done, I thought I would just pop on and say Hi! now the holidays are here I am hoping I may find a few minutes here and there to write a post....as always I have so many recipes floating in my head that I must share with you all.
What have you been up to?
Until next time,
