Holiday Snaps


Wellington is a wonderful New Zealand city to visit and explore, and being only a few hours drive south of where we live, its the perfect place for a weekend get away as we like to do one or two times a year, or to spend a few more days taking in the sights.

The weather wasn't the best for the first day but by lunchtime the next day the rain and fog lingering around had disappeared so we got to enjoy the sunshine for the rest of our holiday.

Hannah was so excited to be going on holiday, she'd talked about it non stop for weeks before we went. She had a fabulous time. We had no set plans for what we were going to do but alot of our time was spent walking along the waterfront, at the parks and at the beach - Hannah's favourite place.

We also checked out Te Papa, the Wellington Zoo, the Cable Car and Botanical Gardens, took a trip on the ferry to Day's Bay, and went to a few of our favourite restaurants.




















So in all an excellent family holiday, just what we needed. I came home feeling refreshed and relaxed after our break away, pleased with myself that even though I didn't manage to get any stitching done instead I finished two books and read several magazines that had been piling up on my bedside cabinet.

I'll be back again soon with some stitching pics :)

Thanks for stopping by xx
