The big New Zealand holiday blog..

Posted 13-03-2008 at 16:10 by lettie

I have decided that I am going to blog our holiday this time and not put it into a thread. I will still add photos to the blog, when my camera gets back from Poland.. The first bit of the holiday needs no pics, it was the most horrendous journey to NZ that we have ever had.........

We arrived at Manchester Airport mega early for our flight to Heathrow. We were so excited about our forthcoming trip and Sparks' mum had given us a lift to the airport. We didn't want her to be stuck in the Manchester traffic during rush hour, so agreed to go early. Our flight wasn't until 18.50 but we arrived at 15.30, we reckoned that we could kill some time at the airport.

We found the check in desks for our airline and...

Back to reality.

Posted 12-03-2008 at 12:12 by lettie

We've had a hell of a good time lately, but like all good times, it had to end. Isn't it funny that the quickest weeks of the year are your holidays?
I have a tale or two to tell about this holiday, most of the tales are good but....... there is one unbelieveably bad one. The tales will have to wait though because we are back to reality now.
We got home on Sunday afternoon and actually managed to stay awake until about 8pm but, tiredness got the better of us and we went to bed. I didn't fall asleep, I lapsed into unconsciousness and woke up at 3.30 am. I was completely wide awake, Sparks had been wide awake since 2.30 so we got up. I was literally banging down the doors of Tesco at 8am, did all the shopping, went to the bank etc....

A day of surprises

Posted 14-02-2008 at 06:05 by lettie

I have to say that I have never been so glad to finish work as I was yesterday morning. Not because it was busy but because I now have 3 weeks off. It's a killer is saving your hols until the winter and I am really ready for a break.

I did have a day of lovely surprises though. My student, who I have mentored for the last 3 years, has almost qualified and she sent me a lovely Thankyou card and a nice bottle of wine. I did the handover at work and then was presented with a large birthday card and a Next gift card from my colleagues......

I was really surprised.....my reaction was "You sneaky buggers!!!!!" How they have managed to do this behind my back is a miracle. The card must have been all over the Unit...

Packing..

Posted 11-02-2008 at 16:37 by lettie

I am getting really excited now, honestly, I can barely contain my bladder. We are off to New Zealand on thursday, I have just 2 more nights to work then off.....

I haven't yet packed, or even started. I don't know why I leave things until the last minute but I always do. I'll chuck everything into a case about 30 minutes before I leave for the airport, that's the way I've always done it.

I remember holidays as a kid, we used to go to Butlins at Skeggy. My mum would start packing for all of us at least 6 weeks before the holiday. We would have new socks, white ones instead of the slightly greyish ones which had been ruined in the wash. We would also have some new clothes too, clothes which we were dying...

The 5 minute warning.

Posted 07-02-2008 at 07:52 by lettie

There I was yesterday afternoon, just out of bed. I had worked the night before and by eck...it was a busy one. I went to bed for a few hours to get some much needed shut eye. I crawled out of bed feeling achy and creaky and made a brew. I was just sipping my coffee when the phone rang. I can't stand it when I've just got up and am one of those unfortunate souls who need to come round a bit before actually having to speak to anyone. As it was late afternoon, I reckoned that the constantly ringing phone would be somebody trying to sell me something so.......I picked it up to give the unlucky caller a flea in his ear (I'm really not a people person when tired)

The caller was my mum who said that she had some news. My mum never...
