While we were back in NZ, it was also my grandmother’s 88th birthday. We went up to Snell’s beach to enjoy a bit of sunshine and celebrate with the family.     Happy Birthday Ten! It was great going back to NZ and seeing our family and friends. We had a wonderful time, but we had to get back to the UK. Before that, we’re stopping off in LA for a couple of days! Until next time…

We had dinner with the Compsci crew at the delicious Kirin in Parnell. Great japanese food, and […]

Was pretty neat conditions at Pt Chevalier when we went down. The tide was so far out, but there were dozens of kites out. It took the boys a […]

I’ve been slack. You see, I missed some posts. Important posts too. After we left Melbourne, and before we flew to London, we were in New Zealand. For 3 whole weeks. And I haven’t posted anything about it at all! Hopeless, yea? So, we were in NZ, which was wonderful. We got to see our family and friends. There were dinners, movie trips, and we only spent two nights out of town, optimizing the time at home! This post is […]
