it was a chilly minus 0.5 degrees Celsius when we left Twizel in the very early hours of the dawning morn today....
thank goodness for a car with seat warmers, and a cuddly flannel rag quilt, and a hot cuppa tea
We had a wonderful weekend with our very good friends Colleen and Pete, who travelled from Wellington via Christchurch airport, for a very cold but wonderfully relaxing weekend. It was so great. We stitched (while the guys did their he man we will chop wood stuff), chatted, and walked, and walked and chatted, played rummykub (anyone know that game?), chatted some more, stitched some more, and did I mention that we ate and ate and ate.....
there were a few flurries of snow on the deck early on Sunday morning, but it did not really amount to very much,
but by the time we got to Dunedin this morning - WOW, snow all around the hill suburbs, and the entrance to the city was sooooooooooo pretty. Rowing man would not stop at that time of the morning 'tho so no photos sorry.
But I did take this one on the road to Twizel....
and right now I am home in front of a blazing fire, warming up nicely and thinking about the night's stitching ahead of me!!!!
