TUESDAY... HALF IN MELBOURNE, HALF IN NEW ZEALAND

- 5am WAKE UP call
- Out to the airport with my niece Chris and me Mum
- bit more shopping, catch the flight back to Wellington
- nearly crapped myself on landing, huge thud as we land in Wellington...very bumpy
- horrificly cold, wet and freezing weather in Wellington
- wonderful to see Stew and the kids at the airport, I nearly cried when I hugged my darling.. Hadn't seen him for weeks!

Drive home in the wet and dark.... unpack everything for a "shopping photo"... and now?

Relaxing waiting for pizza for dinner.... SO SO TIRED..... will upload photos tonight ready for a photo post tomorrow hopefully.

End of Day: sorry, not much of an update for the day really, but I just don't have any more energy. It's been a full on 6 days, I have thoroughly enjoyed it, but I'm glad to be home again.
NSV: hmmmm pizza for dinner so maybe none! Me jeans are darn tight too, so me thinks I have gained a kilo or 5!!!! nite nite.

  3. Welcome home!! :-)

    Yep, landing at Wellington can be *interesting*. I remember one flight, where us passengers all cheered the pilot, the landing was that bumpy. Thought my last day on earth had come.

    We lived right next to the airport on Wexford Rd. Used to get some good views of other rocky landings..

    Came over to your blog by way of Kiwibyrd's site; since I, too, am a BIG fan of Diet Coke, I knew I had to visit :) I, too, am on vacation, only I am in California. After several days of running full-tilt, we decided to lay low today and just relax. We'll be heading home on Friday's "red-eye" out of Vegas (to Wisconsin). Enjoy your reunion :)
