So much happening

Well, it's just been non stop for the last 2 weeks, and I am so looking forward to tomorrow, when I have nothing on. I'm going to drop the kids at Craft & Creations, and have a couple of hours to myself!!

I've done quite a few extra days work this last fortnight, and am feeling it now.

We made it to Auckland on Friday night. Left home about 5.30, stopped in at Pokeno Bacon for dinner, and then onto Auckland to our hotel. The best bit of our hotel...... the KINGSIZE bed, LOL.

After chilling for a bit we headed out to the Casino, although we didn't have much luck there, and headed back to the hotel about 12/12.30. We wanted to order some room service ('cause there is a room service menu in our room) only to ring, and ask, and find out that the only thing that is available is 'stew' or something or rather, I'd given up listening at that stage. We wandered up the road to Dennys, and had a midnight snack, don't ya just love that you can do that when you don't have the kids with you, and finally got to bed about 2.30.

We had a late check out of 12, so got up about 9.30, wandered down town for breakfast, and a looksie, and then back to check out. After playing a game of 10 pin, and some pool, we went to see Lisa at her new store, Scrapbook Studio. She was so lovely, and very very helpful, and I would definately go back again (I hadn't been before, because someone had told me something that led me to believe it wasn't a very good store).

Then it was shopping at Sylvia Park, (although we didn't buy much, just wandered, again the sort of thing you can't do with kids,) and lunch, and by now it was 6pm, so we jumped in the car and went to Manukau to the movies, Wild Hogs, a definate must see, absolutely hilarious.

We got home just before 11, very tired, but having had a great night. I was a bit disappointed we could only stay the 1 night, but I had already said I would work for someone else on the Sunday, and I guess I still have Aussie to look forward to.

Sounds like you had a well deserved break and night away! Where did you stay? We stayed at the Heritage a few weeks ago and enjoyed the freedom of being able to do whatever we liked! So great!
