Happy Birthday To ME

I had the loveliest day...

apart from being a little hung-over from my half bottle of vodka binge last night.
Silver lining: I thoroughly enjoyed myself last night

missing the 10am ferry to Waiheke Island and having to exchange the tickets for an hour later
Silver lining: William Loved watching the boats come in and I had a LOVELY coffee and cakes at the Seattle café.

our tour bus kinda crapped out on a hill and we had to wait for another one
Silver lining: The replacement was MUCH nicer and smaller so could go on some of the roads the bigger older bus couldn't go on. We also crapped out just opposite a gallery and we had a we squiz inside

totally knackering ourselves
Silver lining: I needed the exercise

and Liam getting grumpy because it was a REALLY long day
Silver lining: Liam was mostly a really good boy. He was also SOOOO CUTE!!!! he made it all the way back to Auckland and we stopped in McDonalds for tea knowing that he'd fall asleep on the way home and we thought we could just pour him into bed from the car... Unfortunately he was TOO tired and actually fell asleep eating fries. I REALLY wanted to take a wee video but ran out of batteries. (BUNG)

It was nice seeing the Island again. I used to live there when I was 11. My family rentedZoe Bell's
parents place in Oneroa. (http://zoebell.com/) I hadn't been back for over a decade. Things sure have changed. Some things were the same though. Nice to see they still have the old 4square, the beaches are still stunning and there is still a tire swing on Oneroa beach.

I did take a few photos and will be able to post them on Wednesday (sorry about the wait... I left the camera software at work. Haven't loaded at home yet)

James is asleep on the study bed behind me waiting to use the puter... might run a bath and have a soak.
