Friday I pulled out of camp about 3pm and headed for Richmond to pick up Cath and Kate. We went to the supermarket and got a bunch of food for 6 people for a weekend and after loading up the WRX headed east for the Marlborough Sounds. Stopped in Havelock for fish and chips and got to Ohingaroa Bay about 7pm. Plugged the Sky decoder in and watched the kiwis lose the league but only just. Lisa, Tim and Anita arrived and we started playing Trivial Pursuit. Saturday morning I cooked up bacon and eggs for everyone. I got the ride on mower out and mowed the grass. Lisa and Tim took the boat out for a fish but got nothing. Emma arrived, BBQ for dinner and then we watched the NPC rugby final and played more trivial pursuit. Got the music pumping and had a mini dance!! Sunday morning I cooked pancakes and then Alice arrived and then Jude and Terry. Played touch, watched World Series and then I built a fence for Jude. Tim and Lisa helped and then took out the boat but still got nothing! Big roast chicken dinner and more great conversation and hanging out. Monday morning I made scrambled eggs and then scones. We played volleyball and went for a hike up the creek. Watched Chicago win the second World Series game and then packed and headed back to the city. Stopped at Havelock for a icecream by the Marina and then we all went to Choofs house for a BBQ. It was a brilliant long weekend--every time we go down the sounds its guaranteed fun and good times. Thanks to the Delaneys for the bach!! looking forward to a huge weekend this weekend too as we go on a road trip to Harley and Davinia's wedding in Ashburton.
