A long haul flight

Number one son and his wife are arriving from Japan tomorrow, so I've been busy making the spare room nice for them ... 

... and putting one or two of his things around. 

They will be in the air now on route to Hong Kong then tonight will head to Auckland and then down to us in the south. A long haul, they arrive here late tomorrow afternoon. It'll be good to see them both, it's a couple of years since they were both here. The family are all getting excited.  :))

And here's a snap of a little visitor we had yesterday afternoon.

Eldest granddaughters' wee dog, Mack.

Have a good week,
see you back here sometime soon.
