Christmas is coming...
It’s Saturday 22nd Dec at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast. Bit of a rush day here. guests for breakfast and then a dash to Pukekohe (south of Auckland) for the annual family gathering and lunch.
Been very busy at the BnB with guests in and out. Makes one envious of the places that we hear, about; although travel is like a job…. Move on and gotta go….
We just had Guy check out last night and he had just finished a 2 month cycling trip around NZ. He had a great sun tan to go back to Germany with but on Tuesday he was back at his job in the Bank.
Kinda feel sorry for him..
I have a painting plan this summer. I have erected scaffolding on the west side to make the high rise gable easier and safer. I remember the last time I did this and thought never again… And here I am again.
