Lloyd's mum and dad are here.

We have been enjoying the most amazing weather since they arrived, which somehow always makes things even more lovely.

Been doing a lot of exploring, wandering around and eating!

Lloyd, Alan and Penny up at Mangonui. A big favourite.

At Marsden Estate and Winery

 The view down Kerikeri inlet, Lloyd and Penny were off to do a 10km hike up to Rainbow Falls. Alan and I did not :)

A stunning trip out to the Hokianga - one of my favourite places in the world. The Copthorne did us proud, as usual.

There's been a bit of Whisky tasting...

And even I have had a drink!

Tomorrow we take possession of our new house! There is a lot to do over the next few weeks, lift all the carpets, paint the whole house, lay a new floor and re-do the whole kitchen. It's going to be a very, very busy time!


  1. Looks the perfect day to be out and about with family.
    There will be much excitement when you get your keys.

  2. Will Lloyds parents be your last visitors in that property? Bet you don't sleep tonight with the excitement of getting the keys tomorrow :D Make sure you take photos of the new place, can't wait to see it :D

  3. How great that the weather has been perfect for your in laws visit. Very exciting moving into your new home, cannot wait to see what you do to it. I have a feeling it will get the Laura touch and be fabulous.
