WHERE TO START?

THE DOCTOR'S: All went well I suppose... hateful procedure... done and dusted. When I finally get my hysterectomy I will also be be having a bit of a 'repair' job done on the 'nether' regions at the same time... heee heee, new fanny for me!

TRIP TO WELLINGTON: was neat, stopped at Otaki for brunch and to get Stew a new suit to replace one that was defective.... arrived in Wellington around 1.30 pm to a glorious day:



Here is Stew and the Flat Stanley from the USA at the top of the Cable Car Lookout... this is a fantastic view of Wellington Harbour and City.
This was a lovely big boat in the harbour. The water looks just beautiful.


Here are the Flat Stanley's checking out The Beehive, our Parliament Building... this is where all our Politicians meet to decide how to run the country (Like they listen to us, who put them there!)....

Here is a view of some homes in Wellington... this city is built on many hills and valley's, so lots of the homes are teetering on the side of steep hills.... IKKY!

Here is Stew and the Flat Stanley's checking out the view on the top of a VERY high hill overlooking the Kapiti Coast ( about 1/2 an hour out of Wellington City)... we are on the North Island of New Zealand, and in the distance you can see the South Island of New Zealand! The strip of water seperating the two islands is called The Cook Strait.

On the top of this same hill were Hang-gliders (4) having a great time.... NO THANK YOU!!! It is a long long way down!
While in Wellington Stew and I did lots of walking, shopping, eating out.... OH MAN...if you are ever in Wellington and want an awesome meal with AMAZING service do try out : Crazy Horse, The Steak House at 129 Willis Street!!! I can HIGHLY recommend them.
We really enjoyed our time away together... we DID NOT play 'Doctor'.... ha ha ha!
We are now safely home, Steve has been thanked profusely and been given a wee gift (him and Mike needed a teapot!).... the kids are well and happy so he did a good job.... he even took them to the Circus on Friday night. What a nice guy.
Just to prove I did have a good time:

Right, now that I am all caught up on me blog... I might think about reading a few .... later. For now it's relax time.... our Open Home this weekend is on Monday (it's a holiday)... so tomorrow is not going to be so rushed.
END OF DAY: tired but happy.
NSV: well not too many, but I am happy to say I have not pigged out this weekend at all... just eaten like a 'normal' person, stopped when I felt full.... so in fact I didn't eat everything in front of me.... this is progress. nite nite.

    We have been looking and looking at the pictures. New Zealand is absolutely gorgeous.

    I thought the Beehive would look bigger somehow, but it does look like a beehive!

    Thanks for showing the Stanleys around!
