Got the keys from our landlords for the house and used our last day with their car to move most of our luggage down there. Spending last night in Motel tonight.
Hong Kong was great but now we were taking the final step to NZ. We landed slightly late in Auckland on Tuesday due to a delay to the flight from Heathrow – apparently they were still clearing up the debris of the BA flight from China that had missed the runway. We arrived just in time to catch the tail end of a cyclone so it was chucking it down with rain and blowing a hoolie! Very warm though!
[A couple of days of hot, muggy weather and now it is 28 degrees and beautiful sunshine, dare I complain about it being too hot to bear? (I’ve had to come inside to write this, partly because I can’t see the screen for the sun but also because I can’t sit in the sun as it is too hot!) The University of Waikato have put us up in a Motel for a week which is quite pleasant – not up to the standard of the Hong Kong hotel but there is a small outdoor pool which the boys are loving, so that keeps them happy.]
