here in New Zealand - last day of 2011. I will not be sorry to see the back of this year - there have been highs but the last quarter of it definitely had too many lows for my liking.
It is our second to last day here in Christchurch :-( - we fly up to Auckland tomorrow and then have a couple of days with friends before flying back to the USA.
We have had a wonderful time here - it never seems long enough though! Lots of fun day trips, meals out, and visits to favourite shops and haunts. We even caught up for breakfast with an old workmate of Mike's who now lives in Australia and who was home with his parents here in Christchurch for Christmas.
The time always seems to fly past - and here we are at the end of our 10 days. The weather has been wonderful - I am brown as a berry! No doubt that will disappear after a few days back in winterland - UGH!
So here is 2012 - hopefully it is a bright and happy year for us all.
