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!

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.
