This Weekend

This weekend Glenn, Hannah and I had a spur of the moment trip to Wellington. We jumped in the car about 3pm in the afternoon, arriving in Wellington early Saturday evening.  We'd booked a motel room before we left home and after checking in, we had a walk around the City Centre before going to our favourite place for dinner. 

Sunday morning we were up bright and early, and had a delicious brunch along the waterfront and browsed the Harbourside Market.  

Then we jumped in the car and headed to the park at Island Bay, what a stunning view from the park.

Around a bit further around  is Owhiro Bay, another spot we like to visit when we're in Wellington.

We had a couple of hours to fill in while we waited for Glenn's Dad to be discharged from Wellington hospital, the reason for our quick trip, so we visited Te Papa Muesum, and had a walk along the waterfront to the Lambton Quay shops, just happening to find the Nespresso boutique shop.  Of course we had to stock up on a few of our favourite capsules.

Soon it was time to head home and back to our messy house, lol.

This was the state of our kitchen before the electrician came and Glenn started fitting the new joinery on Friday afternoon!

Tomorrow the bench top is being measured up and then the electrician is coming back to do the wiring for the oven later in the week.  I'll be back with some more progress pics soon!
