Today we are heading up to Auckland with our trailer again.

The more of Steve and Bex's stuff we can get down here before they have to move out of their Auckland house, the better.

Their big move down is in 10 days, that's when they get the keys for their new home here in Hamilton.

Stew is taking that week off work (6th - 12th) to help with the move.

I will probably have Dante and Archer here for a few days, so they can get on with it without the little kids underfoot.

But enough waffling for now... we need to get moving.  The weather is supposed to be fine today for the most part.  We've had so much rain and shitty weather the past week! Need to make the most of it today.


ABOVE: Hello Auckland. This is probably the last time I will be coming up here to Steve and Bex's. 
I wont be coming back when the main move happens, so visiting Auckland will just be for shopping trips after today.

ABOVE: Taking a break before loading up our trailer and car and heading home.

1.10 pm:  On our way home we decided to stop at Pokeno and buy some of their 'famous' Pokeno sausages.  The weekly market was on, so we popped in to have a very quick look around.  It wasn't heavily patronised as it was, by then, very cloudy and slightly damp.

ABOVE:  STEW spotted a stall selling wool.  So umm... I got some.  It was only $2 and $2.50 a ball!  Cannot get it any cheaper than that anywhere!

We also bought 5 packs of sausages of various flavours... and the butcher gave us two lovely cooked (hot) sausages to try too.  SO YUM.

We unpacked the car and trailer the minute we got home, which was just as well because it's now pissing down with rain.  We sure timed that right.

ABOVE:  we are not even at capacity yet!  What comes down next will be going straight into their new home, not here.  All this stuff can go over at our/their leisure once they are down here.

Time for lunch...

4.26 pm:  Such a dreary afternoon.  Seriously.  Just sat in front of the TV all afternoon with a blanket on.  I could be sewing or knitting but I'm just like... NAH.
Don't feel like doing anything.

We are having chicken kebabs for dinner.  Should be good.  

I've decided I'm not really a fan of chicken kebabs.  I'm so OVER chicken to be honest.  A roast chicken is fine, but most other ways of having it?  Nah.  Had it too often.
Gunna have sausages.  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜

Off to bed soon, it's been a long day.

    Looks like a nice day in Auckland we have sun and a slight breeze good for the washing. Drive safely there's a lot of not-so-good drivers out there. George's Mum.
