Just before the Easter long weekend Cyclone Cook made landfall in New Zealand - at almost the exact spot where we had beach accommodation booked. Rather than brave the weather we delayed our departure by a day. And so it seems did everyone else! The roads were either blocked by large earth slips or gridlock. The usual route being rendered impassable, I opted for the "long way round" and after six and a half hours on the road and only travelling 175 kilometres the DBEM called it quits and we turned around and came home. Lesson learned for me. Staycations will be the way to go for the future - the DBEM hasn't been at all well since we came home :-(
I cleaned up up plastic box full of scraps and made this apron too.
