West Coast reminiscing...

I have had a wonderful holiday, only a week but a great week. Went to the Coast and revisited the old haunts, caught up with all the rellies who still live there and had a lot of fun. Sis, Mum and the GKB came as well, it was a time of reminiscing and laughter. Even the Christchurch cuzzy was there on holiday so it really worked out well.

Needless to say not a lot of planned exercise came into it but we did walk the streets where we used to live and try to work out where things used to be in the 'good old days'. Sis met a girl she used to play with when she was a pre-schooler so they had a bit of a catch up and have become friends again.

We also went for a drive up the coast road to the blow holes, which were not working as the sea was not rough enough. That was a bit of a pity because the GKB had never been there and it would have been marvellous if the old chimney pot was blowing. But it did rain for us and drove us into the cafe for cappuccino's, hot tea and wonderful home made afghans. Made fresh on the premises each day - yummy!

Sad to say that I have not been for a walk since getting back and have only been on the bike once or twice since getting back home. I will have to really get back into that as the silly season is upon us and I have already been to one wind up for the year that was celebrated with heaps of decadent food. Very Yummy. And I have another one to go to next Sunday night, shock horror, I have to prepare some finger food to take.

So life goes on, and I am back at work, week 3 coming up, it seems like only last week we were all having a good time together, but sis is back in the land of Oz, we are back at work and Christmas is just around the corner. I already have my first Christmas card, now that is a bit scary, but we also have to get the overseas parcels away tomorrow if they are to get places in time without them costing a small fortune. And write and send the Christmas cards -all good fun, I love Christmas and all the fuss and stuff that goes with it. Bring it on, it can't come soon enough...
