Welcome home Aimee

On Saturday we went to Christchurch to collect our lovely daughter from the train Station. Aimee has spent the past three weeks at Outward Bound School, and she has had the time of her life. She has made many wonderful friends and has many memories and hundreds of photos to remember her time on this once in a life time adventure.

Here is a photo of 'Rutherford Watch' This is the name of the 'house, or group that Aimee spent the bulk of her time with. It seems they all got on very very well and fun was the order of each day!

This 'cutter' was home for two nights and three days!! Aimee tells me the toilet was a bucket and quote "when you got really busting you had to ask everyone to look the other way while you 'went'!!" Now I have to say that would be enough to send me swimming home!!! This is sharing much more that I would care to share!!!
Sleeping on this cutter was not great , Aimee says it was very cold and they were very squashed, especially those who had to sleep under the ores.

Aimee is on the left, in the purple jacket.

Here is the whole group again outside their watch house.
As I say, she has hundreds of photos, but I am thinking you may not want to see all of them! :-)
Tonight Aimee packed up her car, again and headed back to the school boarding hostel. Today is one of her school friends birthday so the girls were all going out to tea, then it was back to school to settle down to some school work before the next disruption... the Ball on Saturday night.

Here is my finished latest painting
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

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
