Well Hello There Laura!

Laura is one of those women who manage to be the picture of 50's perfection. She has a beautiful, aiming to be self-sustaining plot of land, she crafts (I've seen her hand pick a zip), she has littlies and she is gorgeous inside and out. Thankfully she is also a really nice person or we'd all have to resent her! Pop over and be charmed by her blog,


My name is Laura

Where do you live? In the sunny Kaipara... quite a change to a year ago where I lived by Mt Ruapehu for 9 years! (I'm still trying to find the elusive frost that all the locals up here talk about!)

What are 5 words that describe your blog? Sewing, knitting, country living and being a Mum to four... sorry I tried but I just couldn't fit it in to 5.

Why did you decide to come to this get together? First off to see friends through blogging I have already met... Second to meet more... Third I have never been to the South before and Fourth... get away from the kids!!

What do you most hope to take away from the weekend? To have met more bloggers in real life... hopefully some great op shop finds... lots of time laughing which in turn hopefully will leave me relaxed on flight home.

What is your biggest hurdle to coming? Getting on the plane! First time since I was 6yrs. I have a recurring dream at turning up to the airport with no passport... luckily I don't need one... and (shame) It was the first thing I asked about... forgive me I'm green when it comes to air travel!

Do you know any of the other bloggers who are coming? Yes: Miriam, Juliet, Cat, Leonie, Sammy, and Deb who I am lucky enough to be staying with.

Would you describe yourself as an introvert or an extrovert? Can I say inbetween???

If you were to participate in a reality TV show or competition TV show – what would it be? And why? Millionaires Hot Seat... I love when I catch this show... I like to think I'm smart when I get the answers right... and as a plus my kids think I'm amazing when I do. But in reality if I was actually to sit in the hot seat, my nerves are bound to get the best of me!

Have you been to Christchurch before? (unless you live here of course!) No first time, and really looking forward to it! See you all soon :) x


  1. Oh I would love to be the one to pick you up from the airport! All those tales of adventures you'll have! Tiny aeroplane food, inflight safety videos! Oh the fun!

    Can't wait to meet you Laura, you sound like a really cool lady :)

  2. Exciting! Looking forward to meeting you!

  3. Such a flattering introduction! THankyou Miriam :) and Thankyou Sophie and Amy I'm looking forward to meet you too x

  4. I'm really looking forward to meeting you Laura!

  5. Aaaahhh!! Plane trip! Luckily there will be lots of people to hold your hand :)
