Away for a bit of R & R

Tomorrow we are taking a wee holiday in Tekapo. Will be lovely to get away for a few days. Andrew and I are staying in a lovely motel and the children are staying across the road at the motor camp!! Now that makes us sound really mean doesn't it. The thing is though that tiring to find wheelchair accommodation is not always easy at the best of times, and this holiday was a spur of the moment one (ours often are, no good planing too far ahead in our house cause you just never know what hurdles may crop up!!). Anyway the motel could do the wheelchair chair unit but were otherwise full- and the wheelchair units only ever seem to cater for two! The only other place's with wheelchair access were booked out. Anyway the children were keen on the camp at the lake edge, so to cut a long story short that is where they will be sleeping! Will be a funny kind of a family get away, but might be nice to all have our own bit of space.

Will be back Monday to let you know how it went!!

In the mean time check this out, This is where we plan (look at that- we do plan!!) to be Waitangi Weekend, my very very clever and very very busy cousins daughter has organised this event and it has turned into a huge one! Should be heaps of fun- even for us oldies!!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
