My turn

I hoped that we could have a break from doctors and hospitals, just a little over it over the last couple of years, now its my turn but I am sure Eva will look after me while I recuperate and then that will be it for a while, fingers crossed.

I had thought there was something wrong with my knee, the doctor said no its just a ligament strain, the physio proceeded to agree and take my money and eventually I bypassed them and went to the orthopedic surgeon, my cartilage is shot, this running caper keeps me sane, keeps me skinny and gives me enough time to be mum and dad but my body seems to not be so cooperative, never mind I will have to come up with plan B.

As I know you will all be feeling sorry for me put the money you were going to spend on a card and flowers into a cash gift instead, thanks in advance :-)

Off to Auckland on Thursday to do the coastal classic which should be a truck load of fun, oh sorry for you land lovers that is a a yacht race from Auckland to the Bay of Islands, Gran is looking after Eva so should be a blast.

Eva is becoming more and more a mini Karen, looks, argumentative, attitude, strong, stubborn, feisty, cute, mmmmm the next 20 years should be a heap of fun, NOT.

The rest of the month is going to be away in the boat as much as possible depending on how well my knee bounces back and the first weekend of November is a trip to Auckland to watch my brother Mark race his car at Pukekohoe, looking forward to summer, fish, sea, sand and adventures.

About Time

Yes it has finally happened, this video will be usable to Eva's 21st for sure, it has taken a while but at the ripe old age of 19 months its official Eva can walk, I admit to being more than just a little proud.

I am sure of the coming week there will be more than a few bumps and bruises but at least Eva's knees get a chance to recover.


Eva Proofing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A few happy snaps

Back in NZ and it has to be said the last week is the best  Eva holiday to date, I have never had it so easy and we had the most amazing time, here we are back in NZ and Eva and I are now hard at work getting Sea Esta ship shape so we can get away and enjoy the great spring weather we are already having, bring it on.

Once again, if you are in NZ please email us, we always welcome extra crew so there is always a bunk, don't just think it do it!!!!!!

The Evans clan THANK YOU for the week, above and beyond.

I don't mean to rave or more so tempt fate but Eva really is an incredible and special daughter, here we are in Sydney and she has been nothing other than perfect, it has been the most amazing opportunity to catch up with friends and spend time in a place that is so special and as close to home as it gets for me.

I have taken a few happy snaps and will upload them next week when we get back, we even went to a baby show, well for a about five minutes before it cracked me but importantly we got to spend time with Tizzie, Nathan, Kirtsie and Paul which was great after all they have done for us, I had such high expectations of what they would be like and they were all that and more.

A HUGE THANKS goes to Dave and Tania, I am staying at there place in Balmain and it is AMAZING, I haven't told them yet that we are staying for a couple of months :-) (I wish)

Alright, time to go and watch the world cycling champs.
