First post from Kiwi Land

OK folks I am here in Aotearoa, The land of the long white cloud.
I had a good flight, I took a sleep aid and knocked myself out for five hours., woke up in time for breakfast. I should have stayed asleep as the breakfast, or at least part of it was "not my cup of tea." When I booked my ticket I ordered low fat meals and the dinner was excellent, baked salmon and vegetables but for the breakfast there was a hot dish of mixed vegetables, the frozen kind, and small squares of tofu, BARF!! Thankfully there was some Orange juice, a dish of cantaloupe and strawberries, and a small blueberry muffin so I did not go hungry.
Yesterday, my first day, after I signed papers for the rental car, I drove to Tina's house to visit for a while before checking into the Holiday Park at around 11 am. My cabin is pretty basic, but is clean and comfy.

That evening I went to the supermarket with my brother Graeme and came home with a bottle of wine, (compliments of my brother ) which I am slurping on as I type, so if this does not make sense, blame it on this very good Kiwi wine *Chuckle*

Today I spent most of the day with my daughter and had a nice time, cooked for her, went for a drive out to the cemetary to visit her brother's grave and brought her home to take a nap. I think I wore her out.

That is all for now, posting is slow as Graeme is on dial up so I will not be posting any pictures. You will have to wait until I get home.
