I thought you lived on a farm these days?

Are you taking a couple of weeks away from running the bookshop?



I'm going on holiday at Easter. There's a group of us heading across Cook Strait to Classic Fighters at Omaka Aerodrome, Blenheim over Easter (we've got a place in Picton), then down to Tekapo on Easter Monday for an overnight stop before carrying on to Queenstown the next day. We've got a place at Frankton on the main highway right opposite the Frankton Marina. We're doing a trip to Milford Sound (overnighting there) a couple of days after arriving at Frankton, then after spending another couple of days around the Queenstown area, we're off to Mount Cook for a couple of days. Then we've got a long drive from Mount Cook to Picton to catch the 6:15pm Interislander ferry to Wellington the day before my Mum turns 80 years old on St George's Day.

Sorry Brownie .... I forgot, have a nice holiday. Sounds like my idea of heaven - away from everyone with a pile of books *sigh* Do you need someone to come cook for you Tongue

Aaah what the heck you can all come.
No I still live in CHCH  and I am at the bookshop 3 days a week.
The farm is in Mayfield the only place on the road that the big dairy companies didn't buy up. 
I get to be a farmer for a bit....actually I think it looks after itself mostly and someone else checks the big animals.  I relax , read, talk to and feed the 2 dogs and a cat.  It is also a POP place so could meet some campervanners. 
I am sooo looking forward to it........ Mr B will probably turnup at weekends.

I am a few k's out of Mayfield. (hour n half from CHCH) The silence is wonderful.  There is a family of magpies living in the trees nearby and have been for a few years they are really friendly and hang about looking for scraps.  The deer are doingtheir deer thing, the sheep are sheeping and the cattle are cattling. The cat is a pest, under my feet whenever I try to move.
The old dog is stone deaf and the lil one is hyper .
This is the life, I woke up at 10.30am    Can't remember the last time I slept so long.

I am on holiday all alone in the country. Half the lights in the house have just gone off and I can't find the switch board.  It is pitch black  .......   Thank god the power stayed on at this end of the house.

Your holiday sounds like you are in heaven Brownie. Enjoy - we ar jealous as hell.

I will go on holiday soon too. Away from a keyboard up a mountain in Nepal. A bit of a business expenses paid trip really. I hope to learn the secrets of profit success of the Nepalese taxi Tuk-Tuk drivers and apply it to my taxi business in Wellington    Wink

I will keep the date secret at this time so that my readers dont start celebrating early. Grin
