And....I'm back!!

Hi all, I have missed you ALL!!! I didn't get onto the internet other than ONCE when I was away, so as you can imagine I had severe withdrawal symptoms!!!

So after 9 days road-tripping in the South Island, I am back and shattered! And have work tomorrow!

We DID get our flights cancelled last Monday due to snow, so changed them and flew to a place called Nelson and hired another car to drive down to Christchurch where we picked up our original car. Busy times!!
This is the small plane that took us to Nelson - teeny weeny!!!

The green goddess we hired for the trip - crammed full of snowboards and suitcases!!
I drank WAY too many of these to keep warm (my excuse) so need to hit the gym tomorrow!
And survived some pretty freezing temperatures!


I will start uploading some proper pics of my trip tomorrow. Our friend from the Bahamas is still here, and is currently visiting an out of hours doctor with a really bad throat - cold weather eh!!
 
I was VERY excited to learn yesterday that I won Aprilia's giveaway!!!! I have a $75 voucher for Shopbop.com and think i will finally treat myself to a new watch for my collection!!
This is the first competition I have ever one so I am VERY PLEASED!! Thanks Aprilia!!
 
How have you all been???? Fill me in and spare no details!!!
