... about Murray?

Then we have a bit of a lazy morning before we drive only about 20 kilometres to Napier which is a quaint little town which calls itself the Art Deco capital of New Zealand. It was destroyed in an earthquake around 1930 and then rebuilt in the style of the times. It is reminiscent of the Art Deco area of Miami Beach.

When we arrive there are three pipers playing in the Main Street. There is a company hiring out old cars which you can ...

Counting down the days

... but she was talking to me. Then someone else came out. "That was an earthquake?!" Just as I look Thebaut and Hef have jumped out of the caravans too. It was a mild earthquake, I think we felt the aftershocks of it. It was a little more south than here. We went to Mark's so the boys could grind and then back to cook dinner. 21/01/2014 Woke up and had breakfast. No work, so Hef was going for a ride with Mark to pick up Rylee whilst me and Trish spent the day working on her ...

I asked him yesterday if he had been working and he said no as he has epilepsy. And then Laura informs me, he told her he is on probation! The man carries a knife!!

... walls and is on the ground! "There you go, make yourselves at home." I'm still trying not to laugh but as the man leaves I fall on the bed in stitches. I feel as though I'm dreaming only I'm not! Number 4 is fine; it'll be like uni again. The kitchen, laundry room, showers and toilets are across the way. There is a garage and supermarket just down the road. I get into bed and sleep until now!
