Where are the posts you ask? We have just been busy... having a great time with our guests Lorraine and Ed.
The top priority has been touring around the local sites, food and drink come in as close second.
Blogging wasn't ranked. Sorry.
Thankfully Fran has been looking after the kids for us.
Actually it is just a picture of Fran (a famous NZ child care teacher) which has been glued on a stick. The kids have been absolute angels and have just starred at the picture in abject terror.
School has also helped out a bit. A little bit.
Sure. I will try and ramble a bit less so that more of you can follow this post. It is late: we had a great meal out tonight down at the service station restaurant in Saint Cernin (it was agreed that this place could easily compete with any restaurant in the Auckland viaduct).
I will have to do a formal roundup on the trips we have been on with Lorraine and Ed, but in the meantime here are some snaps to fill up the photo column.
