doesn't a week simply fly?
It's a week since we went to Wellington and here we are back into the swing of things here - I am very busy packaging stuff and packing the boxes for London along with squeezing in a variety of other urgent tasks. Here is Wellington again from the top of Mount Victoria. You could take loads of photos all over.
Silverbeet growing in Lambton Quay - amazing! We were on our way to Kirkaldie and Stains so Ian could buy new corduroys - it still has the same charm - the man at the door and the delightful chap who served us.
This is Le Canard - the delightfully fabulous French restaurant
The door to Maria Pia's - I think we were a bit lucky being so close to 2 great eateries - we were staying just behind this one in St Paul's apartments.
And of course The Thistle Inn - the oldest hotel in Wellington - all decked out for the game. We booked a table for after the game and when we got there of course it was packed to the gunnels with happy fans - our table was there snuck right in the corner much to the amusement of the punters. One chap serenaded us with a Tom Jones song - Delilah. The service was great and the food not bad either -I am sure we were the only people eating!
and just so you know we really were at the game - the entertainment beforehand
and some activity on the field. All in all a great long weekend.
But more to come so watch this spot. In the meantime it's back to work.
