Claire and I have been together for 12 years today. Originally she thought I was a bit young and that it wouldn’t last but here we are. Sophie told me not long after Claire and I got together that “she usually gets rid of them after 6 months” which I didn’t really take much notice of.. a bit like the time she said “ewww that’s the spoon we use for the cat food”, to which I replied “I don’t care” and continued to use said spoon to shovel cereal into my pie hole. Ahh kids 😀
So we packed up and moved to Napier for the the evening. We went for a lovely walk along the foreshore and up Napier hill. Then we walked back along the foreshore and had lunch on the gravel beach. It was really nice even without sand, there was no sand in my shoes for a start! 😉
We re staying at the ShoreLine Motel on Marine Parade and it’s quite nice. We had requested a nice room and this one is pretty good, except the giant f**king motel sign outside our balcony LOL. The spa bath was really good and overall it’s not very noisy so all good 🙂
We went for dinner at “The Wine Room” and I really wouldn’t recommend it to any of you. Overall it was good but the bread they served was not very fresh at all. The mains were good and it was refreshing to be presented a main meal where I didn’t have to order multiple side dishes to make an entire meal out of it. We had a nice bottle of Sileni Estate ‘The Lodge” Chardonnay.. very good. we didn’t stay for dessert because it looked pretty boring so we went to a supermarket amd brought a couple of blocks of Whitakers Chocolate *oink oink*. We didn’t eat it all of course and have plenty to take home with us.
I have to go now because Claire is grumbling about my tapping on the keyboard. Stay tuned 🙂
