So long and thanks for all the fish...

Mince pies, turkey, chocolates, ham, sandwiches, stir fries, chocolate, Christmas pudding, chips, chocolate, roast dinners, pub lunches....oh and the chocolate!

(Frightening how easy it is to mis-type mince pies.....mice pies just conjure up a whole different image)

Yes it's a travel day once again. We are leaving this isle's fair shores to return to NZ. For those who are interested in flight details etc (so...Alyn). We leave Heathrow at 10.30pm tonight with Singapore Air. Fly to...wait for it...Singapore, hop off the plane for a few hours. (Plan - eat all purple Fox's Fruit Sweets which they have in bowls all around the airport). Hop back on plane (now with purple mouth)fly to Sydney. Change planes, fly to Auckland. Arrive late at night. Stay in hotel overnight. Fly to Taupo.

The slightly scary aspect is that we leave today on Wednesday, and we arrive back in Taupo on Saturday. How does that work???

(Ok, I know so please don't explain it to me)

Feelings on leaving.
1) Very sad to think we probably won't be back for 12 months and hence won't see a lot of lovely people
2) Bit overwhelmed to leave constant socialising schedule of food and frolics go back to, er, knowing about 4 people in Taupo. Five if you include the girl who works in the coffee shop.
3)Happy to go back to beautiful NZ and see my river again.
4)Happy to go back into summer
5)Relieved to think of being settled in one place for months...and not having to jump on planes every other week.
6)Looking forward to seeing James & Denise, Jan & Sandra.

So a mixed bag really.
Anyway chickens you know where I'll be for the next few days...
