Well here it is another weekend rolled around again.. had a fabulous weekend with Salli & Tony in Nelson last weekend (thanks for putting up with all those shops Tony) Arrived around 9pm so it was well passed Sauvignon Blanc time, neither of us seem to have lost any skill there though!! Gossiping galore, with Tony probably thanking his lucky stars that we both smoke & were outside for at least some of the night to give his ears a rest... got up & went to the markets on Sat morning with me curbing the desire to buy, buy, buy.. well Shane got some chutney's
Bit of a drive around the countryside, a mall, a few other arty shops, Prenzel Liqueur tasting (Mmmmmmm), Seifreid Estate & Grape Escape for some wine tasting.. splendid stuff, Fish & Chips for tea & curling up on the couch like Nana's (which I quite enjoyed, having been out every weekend for the last 5mths..) oh & watching the All Blacks kick some Aussie ass of course:-)
Lunch at a nice pub out in Stoke with Jean (Sal's Mum) on Sunday & visits to Kirsten and then Ross (her Dad) for a well deserved glass or 2 of Red wine.. & a catch up. Then home for Pina Colada's & Strawberry Daquiri's & a Chicken Roast for dinner.. none of which was too foul!
Aaaghh but then it was back to Auckland & back to work.. but yippee, not for long now! And oh so many decisions to make.. when to leave, what to do with my stuff, how much money am I going to need, do I want to go Sth in Chile or just Nth, where to fly with the internal flights in Nth America & Europe, not to mention that I haven't even contemplated the Asia part of it yet! Oh well, we Saggitarian's are renowned for the adventure of a spontaneous decision!
Thank God its Friday & I'm going home to relax over a bottle of Sav!
