Susan’s Travel Diary

Friday, 26 Jan 2007

MapLovely day weatherwise, but feeling low as knee hurt all night and kept me awake--so what. Had my breakfast at 10.00 rather good multigrain weet-bix and fruit and yoghurt. Rebecca from O.A. rang, sweet pretty dark haired girl who said she would call in p.m. Salad lunch here dressed in sarong only and Lynley appears unannounced. Tiresome I wish they would respect my privacy a little more. I try a small pastel of hydrangeas, rubbish. Rebecca arrives she is catching a plane to Hamilton for a music festival and would I look after the keys of the hall in Nelson as she could not get to the meeting in Nelson 9.00a.m.on Sunday. Will I, I wonder ! Rosie rang for a chat, we are going to go to the meeting together on Sunday, and have lunch in Nelson after and see the sunday market. Then Bobbie rings and asks me to lunch tomorrow , they have Americans staying from Marthas Vineyard. Then I decide to go out to dinner at Flax in Mapua by myself. Excellent Veggie dinner, watch children having fun on the jetty,chucking sticks in the water for their smelly dogs to retrieve,fishing and just mucking about. Friends for Freddie and Susannah ? Glorious sunset with rainbow thrown in, maybe rain tomorrow, take snaps and then back to Jessie. Ring Alice (answer phone)Rupert and Lucy. Alls well. Take washing in as it may rain tonight, how domestic I am becoming !
