Wellington visit

24 Dec

Some pics of Mum and Martin’s recent visit to Wellington – lovely to see them both and we were thoroughly spoilt. Managed to cram in quite a bit in and show them Wellington and the surrounding areas:

…And then it was over :( But we had a lovely time during their visit and we are looking forward to family visit round two when Dad and Susan get here in late Jan.

We’ve got a tiny Christmas tree to match our tiny tree and will be sitting down to a traditional roast tomorrow – barbeques in Broome just didn’t cut it last year! Wellington’s blowing a gale today so it is almost cold and nearly feels like a normal Christmas – although the sun sets past 9 here and we don’t have any ‘bonbons’ (crackers) – and then we’re off to Raglan and New Plymouth to visit our friends before the New Year and back to the grindstone :)

    Hi Sarah and Craig, I was in Australia at the same time as you and arrived in NZ a little bit after you, so I’ve been enjoying following your adventures on your blog. I’ve nominated you for a Liebster award, details on my blog and instructions should you choose to accept it. It’s just a bit of fun, so don’t worry if you’re too busy travelling and having fun to take it up :)

Any thoughts?
