School holidays trip to Timaru

The school holidays was once a time for us to avoid travelling in New Zealand, but that was back in the days of having a child who wasn’t school aged (or not having a child at all). Now we join the rest of the school-going NZ families in trying to find both things for our […]

Mum’s birthday and driving north

Our final day in Timaru and the main reason we’d come down, Mum’s birthday. The morning was spent preparing food and getting everything ready for brunch as a bevy of family arrived. There were copious pancakes and croissants, fruit and Christmas mince pies. And then it was time for a birthday cake to be presented. […]

Timaru for a few days

From Hanmer Springs we continued on towards Timaru with a couple of stops in Christchurch, one to pick up some duplo we’d bid for on TradeMe and a second stop at Riccarton Mall to stretch the legs. We were looking for some new shoes for Alayna and found a pair on big discount at Rebel […]

Granny

Today was my Granny’s funeral in Timaru. We couldn’t attend but by all accounts it was a lovely ceremony and lots of happy memories were shared. Keryn and I will say our final goodbyes when we next visit down South. Granny was 95 and we attended her birthday celebration earlier this year in Ashburton, a […]

Down South

We took a long planned trip down to Timaru on the weekend. Keryn finally got to meet Liam and also got reacquainted with my Aunty Helen who provided the transport between Christchurch and Timaru. We had a fairly chilled time hanging out with family, no stress or bother. I ended up providing willing entertainment for […]

Christchurch and Timaru

Earlier this week I had a quick visit down South, taking in Bridget’s graduation in Christchurch and a day and a half in Timaru to visit my recently arrived nephew Liam. Bridget was receiving her Masters from Canterbury University and I was tasked with taking a few photos. There was a graduation parade first up […]

Family Christmas

We travelled down to Timaru by car, taking the Blue Bridge ferry across Cook Stait. We had Patricia and Sam with us and Patricia has inside knowledge for the first ferry, running off to find us a cabin upstairs. It was nice to have an area we could relax and have our own space. Photo […]

We went to Timaru

I took very few photos on our Timaru trip, not sure why in the end. Anyway, we were visiting family and seeing niece Keira for the first time (Skype excepted). I did spend an evening taking a few photos of Keira as she did her thing, they’re up on flickr with a few here. Photo […]

Wedding photos

It has been a while but today I was able to upload the photos taken by myself at Bridget and Dean’s Wedding last year. Our current hosting package had it’s one year anniversary today so I was able to upgrade our package to give us lots more space. So, click the photo below to see […]

And now New Zealand

After a whirlwind tour we have now found ourselves in Tekapo. We’ve been up north and stayed with Keryn’s family, going for walks on the beach and in the forest and also spending time with our cats. Then it was down to Timaru and time with my family before The Big Day, my sister Bridget […]
