This year I received one egg only and I generously gave the calories to the HD3QBEM! This small egg cup is a remnant of my childhood - cute isn't it but eggs must have been bigger in those far off days!
The water needs to be cooled before it can be released back into the Waikato River and so a Prawn Park was established to use the water at one point in the cooling process. They produce prawns of amazing sweetness and size and have a thriving restaurant and fishing establishment which appears to be on the must-do list for every tourist!
I indulged in a Mud Wrap Thermal Spa and massage. It was a wonderfully relaxing two hours and my skin feels super smooth still.
Good Friday we drove through to Rotorua, another city describing itself as a thermal wonderland. In wet wet weather it merely smells of sulphur! We did find this yarn bombed tree though.
I have stitched the pincushion/pinroll with its appropriate ends, the scissor fob and the lid of the cottage. The satin stitch saw tooth border was easy compared to the cross stitch over one. My aged eyes don't really like that too much but I am determined to persist.
Here's a closer shot.
And then on the way home my car mileage turned over to 100,000 kilometres. Probably significant only to me but I wanted to record the event. Unfortunately it all happened in a place where I couldn't stop and take a photo!
All in all we had a happy time away and both feel quite relaxed after the break.
