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 to cover excess on hire car insurance or hired from a2b?
Time for coffee and stitching by the fire.


  1. Glad you are all packed and ready with all your medications and everything. I would swap for snow over the heat we are having at the moment! Have a safe trip. Heathrow can take you a few hours to get through! Have a safe flight - Hugs Nat

  2. Thanks Nat. We're staying overnight near Heathrow so that we can have a leisurely morning without travelling across London in the rush hour. Fortunately we both "enjoy" airports as we need to be there 3 hours before our flight!

  3. You will be welcomed here in NZ with glorious weather right now, well in the South Island at least! I think summer is here at last. Hope your flight is OK, it is the quickest way to travel 12,000 miles if get to the other side of the world. Enjoy the warmth of Singapore after all that snow.

    Kind regards
