Well we finally got away from the UK exactly a week late. The flight from Hong Kong to Auckland was a bit rough as we had a 165kph tail wind bouncing the plane around but on the bright side we arrived in Auckland 40 minutes early. This allowed us a bit of extra time for a coffee with Dot’s sister Mary. Upon arrival at Wellington we had quite a welcoming committee waiting for us, son’s Richard and Brent and our good friend Jenny were all there.
The last 3 days has seen us running around all over the place getting things sorted, making appointments and umpteen phone calls. It’s not going to improve for several days yet as Dot is returning to Auckland for a 60th birthday bash and I am heading South to Nelson to see my daughter. This should prove quite an experience as it is only a single engine 12 seater aircraft. The weather is supposed to be fine so that should help.
