Happy Easter!

I'm not sure what it's like in your little part of the world but here in NZ we've been a bit ripped off with what this summer has had to offer. That is until now. In the past week, despite forecasts of weather bombs, we've had the most amazing weather [they often get it wrong here]. Good weather is not normally associated with Easter here but it's as though summer has finally kicked in. Sitting at work on Thursday, looking out the window, it was hard to imagine the weather could get any better but then Good Friday turned out to be Spectacular Friday!

Luckily for us, we have Kiwi friends with baches. One of our friends have just finished building a bach at Omaha, moving in last weekend. Just an hour's drive north of Auckland, yesterday we took a drive up for a visit. I should clarify that it is normally an hour's drive in good traffic and even though we left home after lunch, we hit the dreaded Auckland long weekend traffic making it more like a two hour drive. I just couldn't understand why all the holiday makers left it so late to hit the road for their holidays.

Anyway, we got there – eventually, and enjoyed good company, good food, a quick swim and a few wines before heading back home just after 10pm.

Today began as another fantastic day but by the afternoon a cold change had come through and we used the fire place for the first time this year.

Happy Easter everyone! I hope the EB visits you overnight.
