The Arrival of Freight!

Last week, after six months of waiting, our freight container finally arrived. It was like getting an early Christmas present and we were very pleased to see all our things again!

The cats were certainly very happy to rediscover the sofa and after many months without one, so were we.

At the weekend we headed into the city to see the ‘Carpark Cannonball’ event which involved pairs of crazy cyclists racing to the top of a fourteen story carpark. 

There seemed to be rather a lot of crashes and it was really good fun to watch the action. Plus the junk food at the top was very tasty!

We signed up to ‘My Food Bag’ this week which is one of the companies where you get a load of ingredients and recipe cards at the start of each week. We’re hoping it will make our diet a little healthier and seasonal and haven’t been disappointed so far.

It’s almost the weekend again and if the weather remains fine then we’re planning on a day tramp up Avalanche Peak in Arthur’s Pass. Hopefully it’ll be sunny and clear so we can enjoy the views and share some photos!


Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely end to your week.
