Our wonderful trip

This morning I get to play on my new "toy"-my new computer and screen arrived while I was away last week and it wasn't until yesterday I was able to get it up and running, thanks to assistance of my friend Tracey, as we had to transfer over lots of files, etc from my old computer.

Glenn and I had an awesome time away with Kath and Kevin in the South Island. We stayed in Queenstown for a few days and got to see and do heaps. This area of New Zealand is simply beautiful - quite breathtaking:) We didn't see much snow while we were there, the weather couuldn't have been better for us. It did rain a little during the night but it was always clear by the morning.

In all, it was a fabulous few days - great friends, good food, and stunning scenery, what more could you ask for. Kath and I even found a little bit of time to stitch :) and go shopping too, lol.

I'll be back tomorrow with a stitchey update. I've got lots of catching up to do with all the blogs and boards but hope to do that over the next few days.
