So much has been going on. I have been getting to grips with all this Coeliac thing, and yes its going okay, but it was all consuming for a good while there. I have been badly glutened once, and I can tell you I don't want that happening again!
I have also decided this year that instead of being insipid and waiting for something to come to me, then I would make it happen. So I have started a little photography business. Mr Busy bought me a new camera last year, and to say my kids are over having their portraits done is probably an understatement. Am I good enough? Don't know but Im going to find out! So with Senior Busy son moving out, I have moved my studio into his room downstairs.
I have decided that its too much "not" running two blogs so I am going to wind this one up, and before the other one even got off the ground, put that one to bed too. I will leave them up for now, but I need to seriously concentrate on what I really want to do. I know I dont have a following of thousands, but I have "met" some really lovely bloggy friends, who have now become facebook friends, and who one day I would love to meet in person! And I would really love to say thanks to those of you who have followed this funny old little blog, and left me such kind and encouraging comments. I will be setting up a new one and a website for my photography business, and when that is up and running I will let you all know. Please pop by and have a gander.
But for now its goodbye from Busy Lizzie and all her Busy family..... xxxxxxx

I was issued a parking ticket in Howick on 21/07/2010.
At the time I was maxing out my husbands credit card at Sirroco Hair Salon, which is adjacent to the parking lot.
I was unable to move my car. I mean really unable to.
For the pleasure of supporting local businesses, I dont know if you are aware of the anxiety and worry that getting a parking ticket in Howick causes to the locals. There are so many of us trying to cover up our greys now that it's a six week wait at best to get a decent colourist. I fall into the catergory of having to colour my hair. Let me explain the imprisonment process.
This procedure requires the humiliation of having to cover your head in lots and lots of squares of tin foil (which incidentaly takes the best part of five Woman's weekly's and a Next magazine cover to cover to try and read, and also renders one partially sighted for the duration). I was unable to escape the confines of the foils let alone the salon to move my car.
After the foils are removed you have to suffer the indignity of wet hair dripping down your neck, while the sylists weilds very sharp scizzors so close to your ears that you don't dare breath, never mind mention that you might like to catch pnemonia and the indignation of half cut hair, so you can dash, like the Schwarzkopfed caped crusader to the car park to move your car 2 spots over.
My appointment was at 10 oclock, and I try to time it as close to the appointment time as is possible to avoid eating into my "Parking Allowance". My parking fine was issued at 12.36 and I got back to my car at around 1.00, so could you please explain to me how in future I will be able to avoid getting a parking fine?
I wait in anticipation for your reply.

So if you want to check it out, its called Gluten Free - Good Food.
And when I am not on either of these blogs you will find me in the kitchen decontaminating, and trying to work miracles with Potato Starch!

Anyway I am getting comments on my posts but some are in Japanese I think it is. I can't read them, so have no idea what they are saying or who this person is. Well Iv'e been rejecting them but don't know whether to feel bad about it or not, because they could be a really nice person, but then again they could be trying to sell me a time share in Outer Mongolia in the off season or something. So if you are nice I apologise, (do you think you could translate your comments?) and if you are trying to sell me a time share, don't bother. I don't have any time to spare! I'm far too busy!

Junior Busy son as mean guard placing the crown of thorns (twigs wired together from our tree out the front) on Jesus' head.
Kapa Haka headbands waiting to be trimmed.
Kapa Haka dresses.
Hopefully it won't be so long before my next update, but in reality I have a few mums to round up, so we can get 40 more Kapa Haka costumes made for a cultural festival. I haven't forgotten you. I'm just .... well ... Busy...

And to add insult to injury I burnt my Bubble Log!!
What follows is a summary of why:
I have been awake since about 2.30am. So instead of trying to force myself to sleep I got up and watched the Living Channel. I fancied the cup cakes they were making on Nestle, New Zealands hottest home baker, and got a bit inspired.
Im going to plead insanity at the PTA meeting tonight, and who knows, it might get me off manning the cake stall!!
