The Journey begins…..
On Wednesday 1st February I landed in Wellington, New Zealand.
After a very long flight, with stops in Dubai, Singapore, and Melbourne, it is not surprising that I was absolutely shattered, but so pleased to finally be here.
Huge hugs with my sister, who I have not seen, except on skype, for 10 years!
Unfortunately, my case decided to take a little longer to catch up with me, but was delivered by courier to the house on Thursday, so only one night of borrowed pj’s. 🙂
Now it is time to allow my body to adjust to new time zones, and catch up on missed sleep. We planned to have a couple of chill out days, but with a cracking headache, my sister Jane, suggested a walk down to the local village to get some fresh air well, we both got soaked to the skin, but at least it was warm rain.
Day 2 and off we go to Paraparaumu, a little bit of shopping, a luscious hot chocolate, and a seafood lunch, and I am starting to feel human again.
HA! Spoke too soon! Now I have a corker of a cold 🙁 all bunged up and deaf. But I raided Jane’s lemon tree, so it is hot, fresh lemon, and honey for this girl for a couple of days.
Saturday and we took a drive into Wellington, and the sun came out for us, a glorious day, and perfect for going up to a couple of the high points of the city to enjoy the amazing views.
Just a little wind-swept!
The colour of the ocean is a gorgeous deep teal in many of the bays around the area of Wellington, this is starting to give me ideas for colour schemes to put together for future projects.
