I haven’t really had a rant as a blogging person, so I reckon I can get away with it once in a year or so.. are you ready?

After that introduction you might expect something really controversial… hmmm prepared to be disappointed :-)

You know how companies pay big bucks to brand their vehicles?
When one of those vehicles cuts you off in traffic in a really bad way, what do you do?
Personnally, if the driver is really ignorant I decide NEVER to do business with that company ever.
Why? Well…
They obviously don’t care about me as a prospective customer, which is what they are spending all of their marketing bucks on
My thought goes like this – if they don’t want me as a customer or want to encourage me to be a customer, how would they treat me if I actually was one?
And my answer is not enticing or encouraging – hence, if you are an arse driver in your company vehicle – your company loses my business

Am I a freak with this – or are you with me?

Toadstools and Black Sand

We are having a bit of an explore and getting used to our new surroundings...

At the end of our road are loads of these toadstools.
They remind me of the ones you see in fairy tale books, and I expected to be captured by elves or faries whilst I was taking the photo.

The pretty white sand beaches and blue Pacific Ocean of Tauranga have been replaced with the black sand beaches and fantastically wild Tasman Sea of the rugged west coast.

I've missed my crochet hook, and yesterday I finally got to unpack the craft room, hurray! Now....... what to make??

Bonjour Beret

It was a friends birthday and she requested a Jac-Ber Creation, and voila a beret.
Now in the shops there are berets everywhere - I'm sure they copied me!

So I've made a few and thought I might pop to one of my new local markets (once I find them and work out how to get a stall) I've also popped a couple in my shops.

In order to do this though I really wanted to show how they looked when worn, without me wearing them because then they're like second hand....

Introducing Veronica.
We love Veronica, she/he's become a part of the family. She/he's a little butch looking, and maybe she/he needs some hair to finish off the look....

I do think that the make-up adds a little je ne sais quoi......
