Tonight ukulele concert was awesome!!!


Just got home from seeing James Hill from Canada playing with the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra. What a mind blowing night. Talent just oozed off the stage.
Too wired to go to bed...

Really enjoying my time here in Wellington, New Zealand...

As Day 2 draws to a close, I sit here reflecting ont he beautiful day I have had.


10am this morning I drove out to Kelson to rehearse with Hayley for our gig on Thursday night ( The sun was shining again and the drive out to the Hutt Valley was just so beautiful, as always. The new motorway is great - I was in Kelson in just 20 minutes, all the way from Ngaio! Hardly any traffic lights from Petone to Kelson now.

Hayley and I had a great rehearsal, with it being like we just played together last week. I guess that's what happens when you work so closely with someone for so many years, it then doesn't seem to matter how long between gigs, you have always got it. Her children Daniel and Eva are just beautiful and her husband Glen isn't too bad either :o)

Then this afternoon it was over to Matt & Karly's place for a family gathering for afternoon tea. Lots of kids and nibbles.

Day One...

What a lovely day I have had. After arriving to a beautiful welcome by my two nieces and my mum at the airport, we drove home around "the bays". Oriental Bay was sparkling in the sunlight, and Wellingtonians were out in force enjoying the stunning day.
After spending the rest of the afternoon at my brothers place with his soon to be wife, Karly, and their delightful daughters, we all had good old Kiwi fish and chips for dinner.
The last couple of hours have been busy with me fixing mums computer, no surprises there!
Tomorrow will be busy with a rehearsal with my long time ex-singer Hayley for our gig on thursday amongst other things.
Stay here for more...

Brisbane Airport a bit quiet this morning...


I am sitting here contemplating life as I wait for my flight to NZ. How deep is that?!

My journey begins!


Just contemplating packing my bag. Hmmm I wonder how long I can contemplate before I actually do any packing?!
