Mum's Here!

Last weekend mum arrived! Lloyd and I picked her up from Auckland then headed straight to Waiheke Island for a 2 night break. Mum had never been before so we thought it would be a nice treat.

Lloyd managed to get a wee sneaky pic of mum arriving! I think it would be fair to say we were happy to see eachother!

We visited our friend Rhona, this is her dog, Baxter.




Mum and Lloyd had to sample the local wine - it would be rude not to!

A 'selfie' taken by Lloyd - Mwahahaha!


Then it was my birthday - which was really lovely. I made myself some cakes! Well, I ate one and mum and Lloyd had one each too.

Big Yum!


Since arriving home we've been doing stuff every day. Today we went out with Nick and Sara on their boat and met up with Simon and Ali who were out on Roxi. Here we all are - having a rather lovely time.

  1. Happy Belated Birthday! Man o war winery is beautiful. My brother worked there and we visited twice one summer as it was so lovely. I bet your mum wont want to go home! xo

    1. thank you! and yes, it's our favourite winery on Waiheke - it's not as flash as some of the others, but we adore the relaxedness of it all!!!

  2. Looks like you had a great birthday and I'm sure your mum loved Waiheke Island. It was lovely to meet you when we were up, we had a fantastic holiday (in reply to your question on FB) thanks. It might be a regular thing for my birthday. Joe said could you tell Lloyd that he thinks the chilli sauce is great and he love's it, he may want to place a regular order, one drop landed on the floor and burned through like that scene from Alien, but all good!! ;-D Haha just kidding. Have fun with your mum and same time, same place next year...hopefully Clyde won't pee so much next time! ♥
