off again!

I head off to Auckland and Kaitaia for a couple of weeks in the morning.

For those of you to whom it means anything I'll be staying with Margaret, Robert and wee Benjamin for a couple of nights, then looking after Auckland Friends Centre (busman's holiday...) for 4 nights then up to Kaitaia with Sarah who will have just got married on the Saturday (which is why I'm going up in the first place!).

So yes, I get to run off with the bride! Poor old Karl has to go back to uni on the Monday so we're off to play with the boys and chill out for a week, just what we need =) (Sarah and I that is, probably not Karl!)

Not sure what internet access I'll have whilst away but be prepared for a photo bombardment on Flickr when I get back, and no apologies whatsoever for the probable predominance of the three youngest Tailbys! Believe me it'll be an improvement on the photos I've taken this weekend (which I'll spare the general public!) of the toilet and shower facilities at Silverstream where the next Summer Gathering will be held - the things we do for Quakers sometimes...

So fingers crossed for clear skies and views of snowy mountains as I go up the Desert Road instead of the usual rain and cloud....

Just had a quick story to share with you! I have a friend that had been in NZ for 3 months and she had been emailing pictures and one was of the kiwis, whom I found adorable. I jokingly emailed her asking for one, and to my suprise I got a cute (fake) one! It is from a Quaker friend, so I have named the bird after Lucretia Mott!

They are incredibly cute it must be said - I spent ages watching them in a kiwi house 2 years ago, so long that the guide there thought I must be a biology student!
