08.00 on Monday 5th and Andy is already talking with a kiwi accent, numnut! The boys slept all night which is brilliant but just as we were patting ourslves on the back that we had beaten jet lag, Fin decided to throw up out the back door! Great! After an hour's lie down for Fin and buckets of disinfectant for us Fin was feeling much better, thank goodness. Thank you to Erica, James and the boys who kindly gave up their house for us.
Erica packed up a picnic and then it was off to Auckland Zoo. The weather here is amazing even though it is technically Autumn the sun is so hot. The zoo was brilliant. All the enclosures are really green and the animals actually look happy. We even got to see a kiwi which we never were able to do when we were here before. Fin and Ollie are loving it and Fin has even started walking around with no shoes on like the Griffin boys.
After a long day mooching round the zoo was it home to nice glass of cold white? No, back to the beach so that Fin can madly go swimmimg again and get wiped out by huge waves. No suprise then that Ollie and Fin crashed out before dinner and were eventually transferred into their jammies and bed. Hopefully they won't be up at four in the morning! It is starting to feel in the evenings that we forgot to bring our children with us!!
Well a couple of glasses of Sauv Blanc for us, some yummy spag bol cooked by the lovely Erica and in bed by half nine.........aahh the wild life of travelling eh!
