Here we going again! Yipeeee. As I flew from Laos on that reliable airline we know as Loas airlines I felt lucky to have had such quality time with you to travel around Thailand and looked back and laughed at how much we had! Can't quite believe we will be doing it again; great!
Yeah but look at you, last year you needed me, this year Iíve been lift behind - quite literally.

Pre-emptive strike!

How's your trip? Not gone yet?
You just told me I had to post 1 message, so this is it! Just kidding!
Nope not gone yet, still sitting right next to you! For that I am now upping the quota to two msgs, and I can see I have to be specific, so thatís two whilst I'm actually in NZ.

hey hey! touch down then. how was your brother's wedding? did everyone tell you how pretty your dress was? :)

Where are you off to first?

Hey babe, yep got here ok, in Wellington at the mo, which surprisingly is the capital. The wedding was lovely a bit sad, but think thats cos it was 'little Trev' getting wed. The dress got some nice comments, but not as many as i would have liked :)
From Rob - Wednesday, 1st August 2007, 17:56 (GMT)

Hi Tash! Glad you caught up with Katy and Claire-we we're all very confused when you didn't get off the plane! Hope the jet lag has gone, and you're having fun in the south island. Not sure whether you're planning on speaning anytime in Auckland-if you are, feel free to come and stay with us. We move into our new house on 25th Aug, so just let us know if you need a place to crash xx
Thanks babe, thats really kind of you. I'm heading north on the 30th, so i'll prob pop by for a day or two sometime after that. I'll be in touch closer to the time. Re the flight, completely my fault, Claire had asked when i arrived i casually said the Monday, meaning to confirm it with her later. It was only sometime over the Pacific that i realised it was tues in NZ!

Your mum's finally stopped crying and started to enjoy the empty nest. (Though it wasn't empty for long - we had the babies over the weekend). Trev's still in Turkey. Your Grandad sends his love. Your mum keeps threatening me with the gym...
Be safe.
Love to you all. Looking forward to seeing the lean you in a few weeks. Enjoy the quiet!

You owe me 2 dollars!
Sorry I wasn't impressed with the service.
From Mum - Tuesday, 14th August 2007, 17:01 (GMT)
Hiya Sweetpea,
Lovely to see you're having an excellent time - the pictures are fantastic. I'm missing you & Trev like mad (but the house is lovely without you both). Grandad OK & eveybody else OK - except uncle T - he fell off a brick & broke his leg!!! I saw him yesterday - guess where? In his shop with his leg up on a shelf! Nothing stops him working.
love you loads,
speak to you soon,
Hey nice of you to drop me a line, however the excellent grammar and punctuation leaves me to believe, that you did not, as they say 'pen this letter'. Glad that you are enjoying having the place to yourself, just don't get to comfortable - I'm coming back :) Love you loads and see you soon. Oh and what do you think of the wedding pics?
From - Wednesday, 15th August 2007, 16:18 (GMT)

Hi Ash, thanks for the message. Say congratulations to Sarah when you see her again. Are you enjoying the school holidays?
From Carol and Mike - Wednesday, 15th August 2007, 20:32 (GMT)
Hi Tasha
Lovely going onto your web site and seeing you girls again -hard to believe this time last year it was Thailand we were logging onto. I love comparing you 2 girls tales of what is going on! Claire cleaning the van - what is wrong with the girl. Is that to guarantee you get the deposit back, she looks a real Mrs Mop, she'll be fluffing up the cushions in the van next! Or don't you have such luxuries as cushions. Good job you are tiny, the van looks a little neat. The skydive looks amazing love your photo from just leaving the plane. Take care of one another. love C&Mxxx
Its nice to know you're keeping up to speed with our travels. We are having a wicked time, well I am Claire is often preoccupied with more menial tasks. However I was amazed that I managed to drag her away from the cleaning to jump out of a plane!!!! :) Keep logging on, and take care!

we are going to wales at the end of august and there is a swimming pool outside we're staying and a beach round the corner lots of love ashley xxxxxxxxxx
That sounds great, have a wicked time. What date do you get back?
From Mum - Thursday, 16th August 2007, 09:40 (GMT)
Yes I thought the wedding pics were brilliant - especially the 'guess who's Mum' one. And ha! I spelt especially right - John had to look in the dictionary! So ner to your reply. (I don't no what ner means, John)
Hehe, I knew I was right.
From John (one half of th - Thursday, 16th August 2007, 23:01 (GMT)
Thursday, 12:00pm.
Yes, I typed the message from your Mum. But it was her thoughts (mostly) - after looking at your skydiving pics. she wanted to know what would happen if you needed the toilet on the way down, eh? Trev & Alex have just been, they had a lovely time in Turkey.
I'm going to bed now - might have a look through the crack.
Hehe, old habbits die hard, I know. But I bet there is just as much going on behind the crack now, as there was when I was there. Oh and in reply to the toilet question, I guess you would just have to go. Although the whole thing only lasted about 20 mins. 19 up and 45 secs down. So you have a serious prob if you cant wait that long.
From jade nightingale - Friday, 17th August 2007, 09:47 (GMT)
I'm impressed at how well you type your name Jade, you Just need to work on, a few other words.

Tell Nic i'm still waiting for her msg.

Hi Tasha
Brilliant seeing your photos of the sky dive - beats seeing that lady you have in for cleaning the van! Why has your hair gone grey in one of Claire's photos - was that when you knew you'd run out of fuel on the boat back? Oh silly us, it's your posh hat. Continue to amuse us with your tales. Just had a little look at your brother's wedding photos, can't believe he is married, too young but so in love. Great seeing all the family. love to all
The grey hair, was caused by the tough crowd. I kept pulling out the jokes and trying to keep them entertained with charades. But none of them found mt Titanic or Jaws references funny!???
From Rob - Wednesday, 22nd August 2007, 12:21 (GMT)
Hi Tasha,
I enjoyed reading your diary and looking at your pics so far. I got back from my 2 week hol in Switzerland on monday and am now back at work. I did get to climb a few mountains, so it was worth the trip. Hope all is sunshine and fun in NZ. Bye, Rob.
Glad you had a good trip, so your knees held out? Still having a top time especially since it has been sunny and lovely for the last couple of weeks.
From John (one half of th - Wednesday, 22nd August 2007, 12:26 (GMT)
Parkwise send their love - spend the money wisely!!!
Nice one, as the money has already been spent :)
From Jealous Claire - Saturday, 25th August 2007, 10:24 (GMT)

Hello Tash,

Your mum sends her love & there's nothing happening behind the crack.
