Finally got my computer up and running. Could not find my emails but finally found them in spam. I have no idea how they are getting into there.Thanks DrL & Desi for organising out trip. A lot of laughs and plenty of R&R.Daffy & Colin you were great comapny to be with. A holiday thouroughly enjoyed by all.Perhaps my hurrying along was a good idea as we did not strike the cattle truck. We arrived home at 1.30 and upacked and the washing on the line by 2.30. My son & daugher-in-law are staying with us while their house gets repaired so came home to guests in our house. Time for a game of Rummikub and then off to bed.CheersSivam & Alz

On a beautiful morning in Sydenham 46 walkers joined us this morning for Sydenhams Hidden Gems inc. King Edward Drinking Fountain.St Nicolas Russian Orthodox Church and Max Merritts & his Meteors Railway Hall as well as Sydenhams Primary School Bell which we loudly rang. Later 12 went to Underground Coffee and a crowd went to Lucianos. and some to Just Desserts. Next weeks walk is in Richmond but more on that later.
LOOKING Forward to SIVAMS Cafe Selection on Monday April 30th @1030amIt will be our 95 TH Coffee & Chat Bitofado & KAIZUKA is not only a lovely cafe but a garden Centre and a gift Shop @ Number 91 in Cashmeres Centaurus Road between Huntsbury & Broadoaks.
Canterbury Grownups We SIX Gups Gregarious Gallivanters had an incredible relaxing holiday together this past week. Lots of Laughs So much so I think it may be worth considering another week Bitofado together in 2013 and possibly a two - three day Banks Peninsula one Later in 2012. I have a couple of South Island Centres in mind in the South & North....Hmm...
I agree with something a little closer perhaps about Oct/Nov.

Well, certainly sounds like you all had a great time - well done!!!!
Fiona Pears was playing here a couple of weeks ago. Would have loved to see her again, but was on the other side of the Coromandel at 7 pm. Such a shame it wasn't on in the daytime. I don't DO the road in the dark. Brought back memories of my time in Christchurch, really enjoyed her concert. Maybe next time she will be here in Whitianga.
Have sent my form and deposit away for Norfolk Island, so something else to look forward to
Take care all!
Topsy2, Great.! Norfolk Island will indeed be a Bit Of A Do..! We love Fiona Pears and have been to two concerts recently one being Free on The Archery Lawn of our Christchurch Botanic Gardens. The other concert was out out The Nut Point Centre and was an SPCA Fundraiser with Lunch provided. She is an inspiration. Best wishes fronm Desi & I.
