Eva, she follows Bobby everywhere!


I'm finally here!!! Bobby has put me up in style, double bed, ensuite, it's a hard life...and Susan is amazing at making cookies! I'm getting the recipe before Ii leave to make them for Christmas! Their house is so beautiful, surrounded by vineyards, and their garden is full of gorgeous flowers and Brian plants just about everything you could ever want to eat fresh from the garden...oranges, strawberries, passion fruit, lemons, apples, grapefruits, rasberries, gooseberries, potatoes, brocolli, cabbage, lettuce, peas, oh the list is endless...! And they've got lambs and hens! Oh and best of all, the biggest trampoline i've ever seen!

It's lovely to finally meet everyone that i've always been told so much about by Grandma - I can't believe how big the family is, Susan had 9 kids!

Been relaxing by the fire, going for walks with their (very spoilt) dog, oh and had accupuncture today on my neck, unfortunately the bungee jump just triggered all my original problems from my car crash in January! Highly recommend it though - accupuncture that is, not writing your car off!

I'll be here until Saturday, when I leave to start the North Island...and what better way to start it than by watching New Zealand perform the Haka for England in Wellington...Mum, that's Rugby ;-)
