Papamoa beach with Rush

for the last 2 and a half weeks my family and I had a house sit a Papamoa beach, we had to look after 2 dogs, Rush and Honey, and 2 cats, Fern the kitten and Paddy, we also had GREAT wifi so i could play minecraft with my best friend Oliver! :D Rush would do anything for the ball and he would beg for it even at night time witch got a bit annoying at times, and honey was a bird chaser 5000! She would chase the birds 24/7 if she could, and Fern was a playful fur ball with claws of steel! They where all very well behaved because there owner was a dog trainer and Rush was a retired search and rescue dog.

On the way there we went through Paeroa home of the mighty L & P (if you didn’t know L&P stands for Lemon and paeroa and it is like the NZ version of Lift but SOOOOOOOO much better) we also saw loads of cool mailboxes but these three where my favourite, we saw other cool ones like a microwave and surf boards. This marlin wasn’t ours but we where driving around Mount Maunganui and saw a bunch of people around this trailer so we got out and had a look and there it was a GIGANTIC marlin! We went to Mount Maunganui for lunch and a swim and i found these cool rocks to jump off and dad caught some cool slomo videos of me jumping off the rocks and it was AWESOME! after that was when we saw the marlin.

This last week or so we haven’t done many exciting  things so i decided to do an update on multiple things which are our new car, my new lego, yummy corn and the book I have been reading.

We have decided to buy a car, it is a green station wagon its 4 wheel drive its automatic and its BIG and comfy.

We went to the shops looking for things (in my case Lego™) In the end we had gone to farmers and toy world but didn’t get any then we went to The Warehouse and found it, I did lots of math to figure out how much it costs because of the discounts and coincidently we were doing discounts and percentages in home schooling so i got to test it out in reality. I ended up buying 2 Ultra Agent Lego™ sets 1 was a cool agent car and the other was a small agent buggy/jetski.

the big one was $50 and the small one was $20, they both had a discount of 20% and I was able to work out in my head to be (together) $56 which I payed for with my money from my B-day and X-mas.

Lately sweet corn has come to season so it is very cheap($1.50 for 6 sweet corn!!!!), we have been eating corn like pigs for the last couple days and I helped dad cook the sweet corn.

I have been reading a book Deltora Quest by Emily Rodda (all 8 books in 1) it is my favourite book EVER! I am up to the fifth book. It is based in a medieval mythical land called Deltora (hence the name “Deltora”  Quest) and the main city is Del (again “Del”tora) a magical belt has lost its seven gems all holding good blessings but together in the belt the power keeps away the evil Shadow Lord, the seven gems are the Topaz, Ruby, Diamond, Amethyst, Lapis Luzuli, Opal and the Emerald. The three companions, Lief, Jasmine and Barda with Jasmines raven Kree and her little furry brown creature on her shoulder Filli, are looking for the Gems to restore peace, but they are guarded by terrifying creatures in the scariest/most dangerous of places.

Plastic soft drink bottle Xmas tree, Rawene art gallery


This Xmas We went to my Great Aunty Robyn’s house and we stayed there for 2 days. We drove up there on Xmas day it took us 4 hours and we stopped at Whangarei . Dad told me about when he and his dad sailed there, because we stopped for lunch at a park next to the harbour and thats where they stayed for about a month. after lunch we kept going to Rawene, where robyn lives.

On boxing day we went to Panguru, where one of dads friends, Steve, was buried. Then we went to a marae where dad met up with an old friend named Boxer and he invited us in where there was an unveiling of 2 of Boxers cousins, (in Maori culture an unveiling is a ceremony held quite a while after the funeral when they believe the spirit has left the body).

When we went in the marae we got to join a feast that was going on and there were about 100 people there.

To get to Panguru from Rawene we had to cross Hokianga Harbour on a ferry.
