Love Languages

Some friends & I were having a discussion about Love Languages the other day. If you haven't heard about them , it is a book by Gary Chapman called 5 Love languages. They are: Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Physical Touch, Quality Time, & Gifts. For more information see their web site here. Anyway it suddenly dawned on my (light bulb moment) that my daughters love language must be gifts. She always wants to take extra money on ice block day incase any of her friends have forgotten theirs, & she has taken to wrapping up & giving away her toys to her friends, just because she loves them. So since this L.B.M. (light bulb moment) I have tried to be more tolerant of her wanting to do this. I have to put restrictions on what she can give away, at the moment she is making cards for everyone! Daniel is touch, like his mum,hehe.

Happy Valentines Day :-)

(yes I know I am late) Valentines day was Scott & my 18 year anniversary. As in the anniversary of our first date. We went on our first date to MacDonald's with a friends youth group. (Well we were only teenagers) It was quite ironic that he was here from England on Sunday cos we haven't seen them for years!

Weren't we cute?

It was a busy weekend with Nicola's first Jazz class for the year on Saturday morning, followed by looking at carports, then we were off to Hamilton for a friends wedding. The kids were sooooo good. We didn't realise they were going to be the only kids there, but they were angels (for a change) Daniel just had his ipod plugged in & Nicola stood around looking so pretty that everyone wanted pics of her, but she went all shy. The wedding was lovely & they even managed to not get rained on. It was in the Hamilton Gardens.
Then on Sunday we had a BBQ with friends visiting from England. It was lovely to see them as their twin boys are only 2 weeks older than Nicola. We had them married off at one stage, hehe.
Scott installed my new computer at work in the afternoon, which was very boring, but good. So I have been trying to get to grips with the new programme as well as actually working on the old one at the same time, it is very confusing!
Mum & I went to NZS Kaiser Q3 Product Preview on Wednesday night. It was nice to have some quality time with Mum.
