Actually, it started with Julie, a friend asking me last year if I would be interested to go hiking and singing in Nepal?!?!! ummmmm... YES!!!! So, i asked my boss if I could take 2 weeks off in November and he said, yes. So now I am going to Nepal. THEN... New Zealand... THEN Kato asked if I wanted to go hiking with her and Stu in Northern Territory... Why not?!? The hike will help train for Nepal right?!? So, NT, Nepal, NZ, Narrabeen Lakes, Netherlands... why not make it the year of the Ns!!!! So it is!
Anyways, it's school holidays both in NZ and Australia, so I'm here visiting my lovelies and playing school holiday things like - visiting the snow, Te Papa museum, going to the park, going swimming and then the severe weather warning meant staying inside for today so we baked, made jelly and did science experiments. We've also had chill time and watched movies and I've crocheted for the boys... hopefully op shopping and if the weather fines up tomorrow, park, bevore heading home... what a great trip and chance to see these beautiful people again!!! Love you all greens!!!!
oh, and woke up on Monday morning to an earthquake... only small, but i heard the sound like a truck crashing down the street and then the bed moved, and one of the kids ran down the hall saying to mon, mum, an earthquake... ahhhhh... the joys of living in NZ.
now, hopefully a few photos will load for me to share with you...
yep... the land of thr long white cloud and volcanic making
and that is almost New Zealand for this trip... i don't want to leave mon and matt and thr kids, but it is cold and i am loving my work and study at the moment... so return i will..l yay.
