Hi all!! I haven't forgotten you, I promise!
Things have been a bit mad here this week. Firstly, there's been SNOW!!! Wellington had its first snow fall since 1975! And some Kiwis went snow mad! I'm not used to a HUGE amount of snow in the UK, but the last couple of years there's been a big snowfall in winter. So I am kinda used to it now.
|Snow varied greatly from area to area - but this was the extent of my snow!!|
However, here in Welly some people were panicking and staying indoors over the merest sprinkling! Which is interesting considering they have earthquakes and general BAD WEATHER all the time, you'd think they'd take some snow in their stride :)
It did look very beautiful. Here is a wonderful video that's been very popular this week, filmed here in Welly.
We also had a freaky ice storm on Monday night. Now THAT scared the bejeezus outta me!! The bf and I were sat at the kitchen table after work and all of a sudden lightning, thunder and the lights in our apartment blew all at the same time!!! I could tell the lightning had been close, and shortly afterwards FIVE fire engines sped up past our house. Apparently an apartment block had been struck! And an airplane was struck at the airport too! So we had no TV or internet all of Monday evening and some of Tuesday evening.
Other than the snow I have spent every spare minute preparing for my first ever craft fair tomorrow!! I am SO VERY EXCITED about it!! I have made cards and tags for my items and had a "dress rehearsal" of the table last night. Hope it's good fun as I have bored the bf to death this week with it all!! ;)

Have you ever experienced dramatic weather conditions???
