Grandad’s Here!

With a wet and soggy landing, Grandad Steve has finally made it to NZ!

Of course Bethany hasn’t been up since 5.15am with her fairy dress on ready to go, she didn’t create a ‘Grandy, Grandad Steve is coming’ song and she never told us to hurry up on the way to the airport!

Grandad Steve seemed pretty unaltered by the long flight, it’s been 13 months since we have seen each other but it really seems like it was only yesterday. He has settled in well already, played Bethany some nursery rhymes on the guitar and is still up and awake at 9pm and playing Wii bowling!! Such a trooper!

We are looking forward to the next few days, it’s going to be fantastic and with the wonderful sunset by the end of the day we are full of high spirits for the weather to be just as amazing whilst he is here…

    Glad Steve made it ok it wont be long now before we are due to fly out, i know it is still 4 months but it will soon go over. So here i go again with my little poem to mark the occasion.

    Hip Hip Hooray we will soon be on our way
    We will be off and soon be coming with you to stay
    We will leave this dreary weather
    We will leave it for a while
    and we just cant wait to see you all smile
    So get the tui chilled and the wine on hold
    because when we come over we like it really cold
    so wont be long now although we dread the flight
    we both cant wait to squeeze you with all our might.
