My neighbours :)

Down the street from me live lions, zebras, bears and pelicans. The zoo is literally a five minute walk from my place and I love going to look at the animals. I could watch the Malaysian Sun Bear mummy Saskia interact with her cub for hours. Unfortunately the six-year-old in tow did not feel the same way. Here are some of my favourite animals we saw yesterday afternoon.

Visitors from the south...

It was fantastic to have Mum and Grandma in Wellington this week. Although I didn't get to show them half of what I wanted to and Mum likened their hotel to Alcatraz (she found a toe nail on the sofa and called me up to say that they were moving!) just spending time together was really special. I had Mum, Grandma and O.J around for dinner one night. Here they are sampling my favourite drink - Malibu and pineapple juice! I miss you both already so come again soon :)

Liz's Birthday

Liz and a dancer at Cafe Istanbul.

On Thursday night we celebrated another year of Liz. We had a delicious dinner and I made her a very pretty but unfortunately burnt cake.

Happy Easter

I feel like semester has barely begun and already we are on holiday. Well actually as our lecturer kindly reminded us, Easter is a holiday the rest of the two weeks are a "study break" during which time there is a strong expectation that we will be working pretty much normal hours. All the same it will be lovely to be able to sleep again.

Yesterday I attended a lovely Easter service at church which was followed by yummy hot-cross buns and really good coffee. An international concert at 7pm "A celebration of the Nations" was just gorgeous and I think I may have a few photos that I will be able to use for my photography portfolio that is due later this month.

Wishing everybody a really blessed Easter!

Lots of love
