Day 6 - Summer fun!

Summer has officially started in Wellington, NZ some time back. 
And we have been making hay while the sun shines and doing all the typical summery stuff - picnics, parties, visits to the beach, shedding those layers of clothes and jumping into the water! 

We have been -  


Getting summer flowers to brighten up the house. And yes, I do buy flowers for myself :) 


Eating strawberries and ice cream. Yumm! Hokey Pokey is a NZ favourite 


Having chaat parties with golguppas, bhel puri and tikki chaat. I used my measuring spoons to hold the accompanying stuff. Innovative, I know. The truth is "Necessity is the mother of invention" ;) 


We have been running through lush green parks, which are abundant in Wellington


Jumping into the pool and sitting there for hours


Blowing bubbles in the balcony


And being very pleased about that :) 


What have you been doing this summer... errr... winter? 

This post is part of Day 6 of the Marathon Blogging event December 2012.

    1. :D I love summers too, in fact I have never waited for them like this. This place is very windy even when it is not cold so some really nice sunny no wind days are hard to come by. Thanks since we don't get too much of chat around, we try and do a DIY!! :)
