A new car, lunch in Raglan, an anniversary and St Georges day!

We have a new car, well not brand new, but new to us, it's a Ford Mondeo estate/station wagon. Now Joe is working shifts there will only be 2 days in every 8 that I won't have access to a car, so we can manage with one car now. Now if only we could get rid of the rest of those cars! (I'll tell ya about them another time! Sigh)

Another plus of Joe being on shifts is that you can head off to Raglan mid week and have lunch

An anniversary - 7 years in New Zealand

On the 22nd of April 2004 we landed at Auckland airport to begin a new life in NZ, the best thing we ever did.

St Georges day

To all my fellow English men and women, Happy St Georges Day


  1. well happy aniversary to 7year old kiwis, from a 44yr old kiwi. glad you like it.

  2. I love those times when we can sneak away by ourselves to a scenic place, for a scrummy lunch - makes memories and makes up for all the time we have been apart *laughing* I do wonder though, who you took on your lunch date with your husband or did you hit up the waiter or Japanese tourist to take the photo.

    So many great things happening to you lately. Love the car.

  4. It's not bad at all, considering it's 10 years old and still runs like a new one! :D
