This is a blog about me, Tam, my family life, life in New Zealand and of course Unique Boutique!

Well, we have moved! I have gone from having loads of boxes around ready for the launch of Unique Boutique to having double around from the dreaded move! Now really I should be used to moving this being my 8th house in 5 years! my poor, poor children and very well travelled pooch!

Bella is a parsons Jack Russell (has long legs!) and is in all reality my first "baby" she now has a new Buddy - Florence, a beautiful Labradoodle! boy is she gorgeous and has settled in to our mad house perfectly!

But really apart from having a nine month old with bronchitis and a stubborn donkey refusing to get in the float and then back out of it (my husband really does have to put up with a lot!) and to finish it all, an escaped goat in the kitchen - things could of been a lot worse! sometimes I wonder if anyone else lives with this madness or if it's just me! would love to know!

Moving couldn't of happened at the worst time - school holidays! Winter - Miss 4 has been such a wonderful help, it has been an absolute delight having her from school, it has made me realise just how much I miss her when she is at school. What I mean is when we collect her from school she is tired and at weekends she is recovering from the week. So to have her off for a number of weeks it is lovely to see her happy/brilliant personality. The girl is really funny - I say she takes after her mummy!!

Anyway I'm off to enjoy some more time with her before I lose her back to school!
Much love
