Counting Us In!

Today is CENSUS day in NZ.

I wish I had some 80s towelling sweatbands for Arlo and I to wear as we embark on the 8-form filling out mission..

I was thinking of writing OP SHOPPING for my profession, or maybe for my religion..
I wonder what 'The Wizard' of Christchurch is going to do this year to avoid being counted..
Other years he has sailed out to sea on census day, or moved to australia momentarily. LOL.

Heaps of op shop scorez to share right here...
coming up in another post...
really soon..

Hope you're all better than the queen.

Happy Days

He he! Love that wizard. I did the form filling last night. Had completely forgotten all about it. Made the man of the house do his, I did the kids and the form for the house. LOVE your pink flamingo. I've always wanted to have 3 of them stuck into the front lawn. x

Gosh and I thought the Australian form(booklet) was bad. I love the colour of your weatherboards. I have a weatherboard house as well. :)

Those are massive forms. Here in the US we only fill out censuses out every 10 years and it's a simple form. Still, people manage to mess it up.

Oh yeah, great idea, I'm going to have to put charity shopping as my religion in 9 years time,. too! x

Yep, that's a religion I would be prepared to be a convert for - count me in too, ha!
Arlo is a little pumpkin pie of a baby (this is a GOOD thing, in case you were wondering...) xxxxx

You've just made sense of it all. It's not an addiction it's a career or belief system. Love it. As I love that flamingo which is perched so attractively beside that grey wall... xxxx
