Hectic Weekend

Lea and I went our separate ways on the weekend!

I headed off to Palmerston North with Alice on Saturday to see Kate. We arrived there late afternoon, picked Kate up from the University Campus and had Chinese for dinner. We had chicken with cashew nuts and sweet and sour pork. The meal was tasty and filling. Afterwards I checked in at Awatea Park Lodge where I was spending the night. The girls took over the T V and my bed and left around 9. I watched Keeping the Faith starring Ben Stiller which I really enjoyed!

On Sunday morning I had an 8 km run along the river before embarking on a shopping frenzy. I last went clothes shopping about 30 years ago so it was a mission. Being late in years I have become somewhat limited in my clothes choices and needed to have the expertise of my daughters to kit me out in a variety of jeans, shorts and t shirts. They did a great job and I'm already feeling 20 years younger with new trendy gear!

Lea carried on further north with her friend Rose to Taupo to tackle the half iron man course before the real competition in December. Lea is part of a 3 person team and is doing the 90 km cycle. I will let her tell you her story in the next post.

Bye for now! Apologies for the lack of recent posts. You would think that with 2 of us sharing this blog we could do better! Never mind we will endeavour to be more consistent.


  1. I think you both keep the blog going very well. Glad you enjoyed your weekend with the girls.

  2. Look forward to seeing you in your new trendy gear!
    And also look forward to hearing about Lea's future bike ride for the 9km cyle!
    Don't worry if you can't post all the time, life gets busy!
