life’s a beach

Beach walks are one of our favourite recreational activities.
No matter how mnay times we go to Karekare, it is different every time.
Today was the first time we have ever found sea lions – three of them washed up on the shore, dead. And a dead bird. And a fish, dead too.
Today also goes down in history as The First Time Ella-Rose got to walk some of the way.
And the day Dadda jumped *over* the river to keep his boots dry……but landed just short of the sand.

With that, I can link to the Recreation page in the sidebar.

special sponsors

Monday, September 24th, 2007

Sponsorship isn’t just a big corporate affair. Some of our *sponsors* are people I feel fortunate enough to be able to call friends, people I met online, and have subsequently had the privilege of meeting face-to-face (with the exception of The Outrageous One).

travel naps/diapers

So what have sponsors got to do with cloth nappies/diapers? There are some dedicated, creative, earth-friendly, reusable-cloth-providers out there who are helping us make the message global. If we can use cloth in a Mongolian winter, surely it can’t be all that tricky!
To read more about them, please jump to this page. (Be prepared for a rollicking good yarn or four, no sermons to make you feel guilty about using disposable diapers, plastic bags and throwaway pens)

And with all that talk about diapers, I guess this would be a great place to link to the sidebar In Search of a Toilet Page.
And as toilet training is a *parenting issue*, let’s link to the On Parenting Page too.

I wondered why Pilgrims' Progress was suddenly a hot destination when I hadn't even posted anything for a couple of days. Here's why: click me. Thanks Kristen! can see this post is inspired by Kristen's own submission - thanks ... [Continue reading this entry]

let me off this see-saw

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007
Remember Rob suggested we look at going up to China for the February teaching instead of August? We had decided there just wasn't time to get organised.....sewing clothes, applying for passports, buying gear, booking flights and accomodation, getting immunisations, applying for ...

just time to link to justJUSTICE today...and to reinstate all the links that have gone haywire....grrrr While you're waiting, take a look at this great 35-second idea (don't forget to turn the volume up)

money talks

This year for the first time in a very long time I didn't make my own personalised fits-me-just-right diary. I bought one. For the pictures. There is a photo of an embroidery or quilting project on half of every double ... [Continue reading this entry]

not that we’re counting

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007
Yesterday's little number crunching exercise made me think I could have linked to the *not that we're counting* page....but I didn't, so now we need more numbers. Did you know you will sometimes find us on the Boots-n-all blog page? ... [Continue reading this entry]

a month old

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007
Pilgrims' Progress is a month old. Time to celebrate! So far 798 *unique* people have visited, stopping off at 6233 pages. Now that may not sound like much in comparison to how many visitors Bill Gates or Brad Pitt get, but they have ... [Continue reading this entry]

what if?

Monday, September 10th, 2007
what if we can't find a caravan when we get to England? The European part of our trip hinges on being able to find one at a reasonable price....and a van......preferably within a few days of each other.....most likely on ... [Continue reading this entry]

BORING BOOKS (a scandalous suggestion!)

Friday, September 7th, 2007
Books may not be boring, but the titles of my online bookshelves are certainly lacking in the inspiration stakes. All of my blogs have bookshelves, and not one of them bears an interesting title. There's Garden Reads on Up ... [Continue reading this entry]
