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…

In October, we got to go back to NZ for a wonderful 2 weeks, namely for Dad’s 70th Birthday. Happy Birthday Dad! We had 2 parties for Dad’s birthday. One with the family and one with Mum and Dad’s friends. The family one was on a sunny spring day at home with all the cousins and my Aunty and Uncle. Dad’s cousin in Spain delivered a gift over with Rob and I – a delicious looking bottle of Spanish cognac. […]

Apologies for the long break in our travel blogging. Last we posted, we were in Maulbronn visiting an Abbey. But our main reason for this European adventure was to go to James and Meike’s wedding in Illingon, Meike’s home town. Many of James and Meike’s friends and family had shown up from all parts of the world and we spent 3 days of getting to know the new in-laws and partying. The wedding service was really lovely. It was in both […]

Because we actually know people in London (and not too many in Cambridge), it seemed like the better idea to head down to London for the Christmas holidays. And we had a *wonderful* time. Tripping Around During the week, we did touristy things and caught up with a bunch of people, namely Graham G. and Andrew M., Wendy and Abbey and finally Jess C at a Japanese noodle place I’d been dying to try. We tripped around London a bit […]

My workplace gets a bit into the Christmas spirit. It’s not unusual to have decorations in the office and people buy Christmas pies for snacks in the afternoons. What ARM also does quite well at Christmas time is their Christmas party. It was an Asian theme this year inn cuisne and entertainment. They had Bollywood dancers, Chinese acrobatics, actors on stilts and snake dancers as entertainment, which was all quite fun. The food selection was quite varied, but all asian […]

Hi everyone, So, a general update. Not everything that goes on gets blogged, mostly because not everything has a photo taken of it. Shocking thought, I know. But it’s a reality. So, verbally, here’s some of the cool things that’ve been going on with us. We had a little housewarming party at our new digs. It was mostly my work mates who came, two of my neighbours and an old school friend, Abbi. Rob’s work mates live all over the […]

In the middle of May 2010, Rob and I left Melbourne, which had been our home for 4 years. We have a few get togethers before we left, but the drinkies the night before we went was brilliant. So many friends that we’d made from different circles came, which was so wonderful. Not everyone got a picture here, but you know who you are. Thanks for coming! Our netball mates. Thanks for all the fun times! Hockey peeps and Flat […]
