We're at Mummy and Daddy's now with three more sleeps until we're leaving on a jet plane. There have been lots of quite sad farewells over the past few days, it really seems to be having a strong effect me this trip.
At the moment we are watching enormous snowflakes falling outside and it is rather chilly. Al has braved the weather to set up the car battery with a solar panel to keep it charged while we are away (last time we had to have a new battery even though we'd used a "trickle charger" intended for the job).
We are all packed and ready to go - just hoping there's not a substantial amount of snow at Heathrow over the next few days!
We've been discussing whether to buy or rent a car in NZ. Last time we bought one, our lovely Mazda Lantis, "Alfie", and it worked out really well although the process took up a few days of our holiday. Has anyone used www.insurance4carhire.com to cover excess on hire car insurance or hired from a2b?Time for coffee and stitching by the fire.
