Farewell Aoteroa

E noho ra

Well, today is the day. I had my fish and chips,  coffees, sushi, and savories (at Copenhagen Cafe) .  I saved my last Friday’s meal for pizza from Pizza Carto but Pizza Carto was on “Winter break”  oh well, Ciao pizza carto.

Jim and I visited the ocean yesterday.  Just to have a look before returning to the midwest.  Yeah Peoria is not “the” town, but I must say that I missed it a lot while I was in NZ.  So I look forward to returning home and getting back to my gardening, work and some daily routine.

Tessa, Deb, Annette, and the ladies thank you for always making me feel welcome.  It was really nice working around you.  I’ll try and post pictures of my backyard under development.    Ngaira, Keith, Fiona and John; I am so glad we got to share Thanksgiving dinner 06.  Chris, Min and the girls thanks for being frequent life savers.    Mum, Jen and Lena thanks for visiting me in NZ and Australia.

Well, the blog is beginning to sound as though I just won an award ;-).  LOL
Jim and I had a wonderful time traveling around NZ.  We now have renewed interest to travel around the USA.

    So… it’s back to the land where they have biscuits and gravy for breakfast. I don’t think we Kiwis will ever get our head around that, although you did introduce us to the delights of pumpkin pie – enough that we wanted the recipe!
    It’s been fun getting to know you – and blogs are great for keeping up with how things are going

    Thanks so much for enlightening us on MANY aspects of the States of which we were totally unaware – see, it’s not only the American’s who are geographically devoid…but being a kiwi, we have a reason, cos our little own country is SO small it is easy to forget that other countries are so much bigger, and we really don’t need to worry about where Peoria is actually – although I am now glad I do!! Keep in touch lovely lady, we miss you and need the ongoing contact! Yay, Ngaora
