All worked out on the cat front. I ended up taking Twiggy over to the farm in the morning.... so she had a weekend on the farm to chase bunnies around, and hang out with all the other cats. I'm sure she quite enjoyed herself. She hates going in her cat cage though to travel.
Meanwhile, the weekend in Wellington was the BEST! :)
I arrived on Friday afternoon and was picked up by my lovely friend Benny who I haven't seen in over a year and a half since he left for England and I moved up here. It was great to hang out with him while everyone else was at work. We got into mischief driving around the city, before finally finding a place to sit by the water and wait for the rest to turn up. We were actually there for hours before Shane turned up and we headed over to the restaurant and met Hilary and Sarah.
It was one of those extremely long dinners with lots of laughing, and great food!
Ben and Sarah left after that, while Hilary, Shane and I headed into town to continue laughing, before heading home.....
The weekend continued on much the same... my old flatmate Jackie arrived early the next morning, and we had a great time wandering the streets of the cultured city. The wedding shoe hunt began, and we even caught a movie while it poured with rain outside.
I'm realising once more just how blessed I am with the friends that I have in my life.... and am amazed at just how God brings these people across our paths..... Some of them are pretty random meetings - but perhaps those are the best ones.
It's a pity that none of them live near by. It does make for wonderful weekends away though. :)
So - photo above was taken just before Jackie and I zoomed off to the airport with our wonderful driver Shane. Hilary had just gotten back from her weekend away.
More smiles. :)
