Yours Truly had his **th Birthday today!

HB1He’s probably dreaming of one of these now Winking smile 

We spent a very busy day in Wellington today, catching up with both our elderly parents as well as visiting the polling booth to cast our votes in the country’s General Election before polling day tomorrow. Collected our mail from Brent’s and returned some belongings to our storage before heading north again.  We had a delightful lunch at one of our friend Jenny’s favourite cafe  “The Fig Tree Cafe” in a unique setting in a restored chapel in Heretaunga.

Happy Birthday Derek - hope it's been a good one. Enjoying your blog and glad to see that the motor home has at last got it's name painted on.

Happy Birthday Derek, we know exactly how old you are!

Wish we could have come to the Fig Tree too!

Hi Derek,
Thank you for your kind thoughts. I think it was actually narrow boats rather than railways that crossed my thoughts that day.

Hi Pip & Roger,
Thank you for the Birthday wishes. This is Gypsy Rover MkIV but we couldn't fit the MkIV. There is not as much to blog about at present but that will change.

Kevin,
I am unsure if we have ever met but thank you for the thoughts.

Hi Jenny & Robin,
Lets keep it our little secret or the painter may go on strike.
