What day is it? Asking for a friend 🙂

What day is it? I'm in holiday mode!

This is the most asked question in our household at the moment, and has been for the past few weeks. We generally know the ‘month’ but not what ‘day’ it is. My calendar is my best friend, reminding me of what I have planned each day. And my watch tells me the day if I remember to look at it!

I think today is Friday 😂 but feel free to correct me. 

Although I’m now into my third year of retirement, it still amazes me that holiday time hits me the way it does! It could be because we have a teenage Rotary Exchange Student living with us and we’re aware of school being on holidays (which is funny because we both worked in Education for many years) or it’s just that time of the year when everything goes into free-fall.

I must admit it’s a nice way of being and the hammock is a great place to hangout, with a spurt of exercise every few days, preferably the aqua aerobics type of activity, given the heatwave conditions we’ve been experiencing here.

Is this a common theme or is it just me?

It’s all a bit ironic given my word of the year is TIME and trying to work our how to get more of it in 2019!  Maybe I need more help than I thought 🙂

Stay in touch and enjoy those holiday feels!

Travel thoughts - care, share and respect

Travel thoughts – Care, share and respect!

Every journey is a voyage of discovery – Clare Boylan The adventure is over. We are home and have been for a while now. The clothes that reeked of smoke from the campfire and physical exertion are clean again, my husband’s beard has been removed, the car has been emptied and bags lie around in anticipation of being put away…until the…

Railway sheds along the Central Otago Rail Trail

A recent trip to New Zealand was fantastic for many reasons – the views, the countryside, the people, the cycling and the fun of being away on holiday with good friends! I also enjoyed taking photos of the many rail sheds and signs along the way as we cycled the Otago Rail Trail from Clyde to Middlemarch.  Here’s a collection…

Travel Blog: New Zealand #10 – Road trip, rocks and pennyfarthing fun

My last post had us leaving Dunedin on our way up the coast towards our eventual destination of Christchurch.  As we left Dunedin we checked out the steepest residential street in the world, Baldwin Street, and a lookout over the city.  At morning tea time we made an impromptu stop at Waitati, visiting a gallery and made a very  surprising find.  A…
