That's lookin' good WP.

We're having a bit of Pinot Gris ( blame Am Loolah) and I'm printing off some family history stuff for a very dear friend.

Makes me happy anyways.

It's not posh. It means more spam for tea.

You have a hug. If you were near , I'd get you tiddly and we'd dance around the dining chairs.

A drink in a posh glass for SuperBevs and I'll have my usual cattle trough full of cheap wine to start with.

Been working in East Chch for the last week, bloody trucks and buses go past every half hour and the place shakes like mad, sound and feel just like quakes about to happen . I keep going on the alert and so do my clients It's not a good feeling. We all have an oversensitivity to vibration

enjoying my real Merlot!!!!!

Hope it's all ok with the little one! Be very careful of what you read on the net, it can just make things seem worse. I mean, look at the crap we talk about over a few drinks in the bar here Obviously only speaking about myself

I'll have a real and virtual drinky with you
Hope everything is fine on Friday x

Give me a drink someone for gawd's sake

OH has found 'our next holiday' - a nice sounding cruise around French Polynesia and Hawaii, in a cruise company's sale (so, yes, probably the only way we'd be able to afford to cruise to those destinations in that level of comfort)!

Trouble is (for me) that the cruise costs around as much as two return flights to the UK, then he started researching flights from Honalulu (work out how much that would add to the overall cost)!!

For years he's been telling me we can't afford a trip back home, so how the hell can we afford another swanky 2+ week cruise????

Then I pointed out about it being cheaper to go to the UK and he said "well if that's what you want" :curse:

Okay, so finally got some time to reflect on the holiday and to sort out some pics.

Cruising was an interesting exprience, one which I think we might repeat but not on a regular basis. Of the island ports I was surprised to find that I didn't take to Vanuatu as much as I thought I would, but fell in love with the one island in Noumea that we called at. But we did only spend one day in each port, so wouldn't get as true a picture of a place as if we had been there for a week I guess.

But mainly it was wonderful spending so much time just me and OH and it was so good to see him gradually return to more like his old self as his body really began to recover from his little health incident. Now we are back home, he is almost totally back to his normal self (though I'm not sure whether this is good or not in some areas )

Oh, and I have a tan a real, proper one (and I don't care if it's not fashionable, it makes me feel so good). And I'm pleased to say that I only put on around 1 kg

Here're a few pics for you to drool over


Mele Cascades, Vanuatu


Fiji




Noumea
