More snow but warm and sunny!

Sunday morning we had a bit more snow on the tops. Coronet Peak had snow on the top of the trails. It's been the most awesome sunny days here and the lake looks superb. Yesterday and today are around 20 degrees and I'm wearing t-shirt and shorts for the first time since I've been here!! Settling into the job well and getting heaps done. I have a huge list that I am working through and am excited about the challenges and the progress made. So far any spare time has been spent watching cricket or rugby or Lost (best drama currently on TV), usually doing some paperwork at the same time. I need to start making a list of things I want to do while I am here. Milford Sound for sure, Deer Park, walk around the peninsula, Jet boating, learn to snowboard. Have found a soccer team so off to my first training tonight, hope to get heaps of games in. Forgot to put in my last blog that on my way down here 2 weeks ago I saw a Hummer!! It would be the first Hummer I have seen in NZ. It was black and was heading north somewhere around Greymouth. Really looking forward to family reunion in 9 days time. I'm flying up to Auckland to meet up with everyone for a week in the Bay of Plenty. Miss everyone in Nelson and wish someone would come and visit me!! Well its lunch time and I'm hungry...

Lost is actually quite a crappy program... why is there a polar beer on the island? and why the heck havent they been found yet? ....
