School's out for Summer!

I cannot believe that this year is already over for the boys at school. It has gone so fast! It has been a lovely first day of the summer school holidays today just hanging out with my boys, we all wish MrW could have been here with us but unfortunately he is working hard until Christmas Eve before he will get a well earned couple of weeks off. The weather isn't the nicest but it has meant we have just chilled out and not been tempted to go anywhere. So for now we are counting down to Christmas!!!



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'm the one in front of these three :)
Off on the ride



Finished!
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,

MrsW xx

Hiya, thanks for taking the time to comment on my post. I can't wait to read your comments and to share ideas, I am a busy mummy with 2 boys to run around after so I will try and get to comments as quickly as I can...if there is a delay in seeing them published this is why, not because I don't care, I'm just taking some time to smell the roses :)
