Another sunny weekend

We have been here for 4 weeks and so much has happened in our lives that it is sometimes hard to comprehend it all.  One thing I can say for sure, I am really enjoying our new life and spending far more time outside, walking and eating good food.

On Saturday evening we went to our first live rugby match.  I had put ‘see a rugby match in New Zealand’ onto my bucket list as soon as I knew we were moving here, and was happy to go so soon.  Thanks to a friend of an ex-colleague in Copenhagen, we went to see the local team, the Hurricanes play the Blues from Auckland.  The Hurricanes unfortunately lost 20:34, but it was fun to go all the same.  The ground was half empty which was also a shame, but still, I have a flag to wave should we ever go again!


A Hurricanes flag souvenir!

On Sunday we had a nice leisurely day, veggie shopping at the market, enjoying a venison burger, walking and relaxing in the garden.  I just love this fern growing in the garden.

I got myself a 10 journey cable car ticket which for some reason I find a rather fun and exotic thing to have in my purse!  I am also now a friend of the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

We have friends coming to stay this week which I am looking forward to, going to the ballet on Saturday and out for dinner on Sunday, so quite a few things in the diary in the days to come.



  1. Love the photo of the cable car Barbara! So glad that you are enjoying your new life down under so much. I am enjoying reading about it. XX
