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
the haka
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.

You got back just in time. The weather here is freezing now. Rimutaka road closed with snow, and here in Wellington cold and wet. Glad the trip worked out well for you. I will come and say hello at Ally Pally.

Sounds like a great trip Dale - don't work too hard.

I wonder how many of us will come and say hello at Ally Pally, freezing cold here in Sth Aus today and for cast for snow tomorrow! Ridiculous and here I am trying to think of clothes to take away.
