Off and about for a wee bit of r and r

 This evening Ian and I are off to New Zealand for a wee break. We will be back next Friday. this is where we are going - flying to Auckland, flying to Wellington, flying to Picton and driving to Lake Rotoiti in the Nelson Lakes area. Having spent most of the morning at the i-phone hospital trying to fix my phone (only half achieved) I have been frantically finishing my tasks and still to pack my suitcase and find my creative stuff to take. Popped up a new holey moley, got all the POMs (product of the months) done, all the orders packed, and a few other little jobs like the washing.

Not sure what sort of computer/phone reception awaits us - we are in the bush but you can bet we will be watching the All Blacks game on Saturday at the Alpine Lodge. Just had to show you the All Blacks cup cakes - apparently Cory Jane has eaten the missing one.


Hopefully it will be a nice day tomorrow and we will see snow as we fly down the north island. On Wednesday we fly to Wellington to see what I love to see and catch up with Raylene and Ken and then back home again.


Maybe we might see a robin in  the bush - apparently we are doing lots of walks around the lake etc.

Haven't had any more sailing results from yesterday so can't tell you any further progress from Grant.

I just love the cup cakes - the Wallies need to take a leaf out of the AB's book!! Enjoy the game.

Hi! Dale,

What a wonderful thing to do, hope you and Ian have a really great break and meet some little robins on your walks.

Dale, have a great time! I love NZ and am jealous! BUT---I arrived home tonight to a parcel from you. I WON THE RADIANT RAINS!! I never win anything, so I am over the moon. Thank you so much! I will put them to good use and post pics. "I'm so excited...and I just can't hide it...!" Have a safe and happy trip.
