For the past month I have been very lucky to have been on holiday in NZ. We went home to attend the wedding of one of my cousins and made a real holiday of it by catching up with friends in Melbourne and Dubai That have moved away. It has been a wonderful holiday That I am actually looking forward to going back to workTel on Monday! Whilst away, we've seen some amazing sights - here are a few samplers for you
|The view from my step-sister's house. Ridiculous, is not it|
|The view from her lounge - I wouldn't put curtains up either|
|View from Paekakariki , along State Highway 1|
|Wellington, and the Cable Car|
|In Wellington CBD|
|Native trees at Zealandia|
|Native bird at Zealandia - a Takahe|
|The view from Waimangu Thermal Valley|
|Dubai - from the Burj Khalifa|
As well as doing touristy stuff and hanging out with friends / family, I have been sewing like a trouper. I've signed up to a challenge Started by an American lady That Spans the globe - it's really quite impressive - which basically entails us not buying any ready-to-wear items for a year. We're allowed to buy underwear, socks and stockings. It's been interesting so far. Packing for a month long trip was definitely more stressful, as my normal catch phrase of "I only need a toothbrush, passport and purse "does not really apply in the year of the RTW fast. But I survived. actually I left the UK with material I wanted to sew into things, and almost all of it got sewn up.
Of course I also bought some more ... supporting the local economy via souvenirs and all

Happy sewing and travels my friends!
