Full Steam Ahead...

Hello Everyone,

Again, I have to apologise for my lack of posting - all I can say is that I'm feeling a little restless, a little bored and a little bit like I want things to hurry up.


Things like Summer to actually get here (this week is the last week of Spring), holidays (four weeks to go!!), my last day of work (22nd January), David handing in his masters (this Friday, so no seeing David this week unfortunately), finding out if David has been awarded a PHD shcolarship (in a few weeks time hopefully), and just other general little bits and pieces.

The Victorian steam train ticket man in the background let me take a photo with his hat on, only, I was blinking in the photo so it doesn't look very good. Oh well...

But enough of that and onto the weekend spent at the Victorian Heritage festival in Oamaru. Saturday morning we left Dunedin, and it was lovely and hot and the perfect weather for driving. We got to Oamaru, and watched the Victorian parade with yet again, beautiful hot weather. Then, all of a sudden, in the blink of an eye, a naughty little southerly swooped in off the ocean and it was freezing!!

We did manage to go for a ride on the steam train though!
