Sofa...looking good

Running out of places to photograph so falling back on our recent holiday to New Zealand.
I got quite melancholy looking at what a great time we had & thinking whenever are we going to see family over there again....it will be a while I think sadly.
So glad the whole family apart from two got together together. You never know what’s round the corner!

We took this photo in Napier the Art Deco town.

Three good things:
1. Enjoy every moment & appreciate our blessings.
2. We have put up a bit of bunting for VE Day.
3. I sprayed the roses for green fly.
Amazing how this shut down ,gets us all a little melancholy. yearning for normality on these days of uncertainty ! But we must soldier on ! I have no buntings and can't even find the Union Jack !! Love this shot - what a cosy invitation !

Lovely to have photos and memories to keep us positive at the moment. Just want long arms to hug around the world.
Every day is a bonus and technology makes a difference.

What a great idea for this bench. Sean's had his flights to the UK cancelled this morning. He's feeling quite sad because, at this rate, his baby grandaughter is probably going to be walking by the time he gets to see her in real life. But at least we can see her and her brother by video link, and he will get to see her once the virus has been dealt with, so we do have a lot to be grateful for.

@nickspicsnz So sorry for him, he would have been so excited too. No idea when it’s going to end either.

This looks just like a shop in Oamaru had out the front - before lockdown of course. Glad to know that no-one in your family was struck by covid after such a get -together!

What a lovely concept. Not these days though I suppose. I can relate to those sad thoughts. At least we got to see our Swedish son as he came over as a surprise for my big birthday in March. He was only in NZ for 6 days due to his later flight being cancelled so he had to rush back early before lockdown. No idea when we will be together again either. Thankful for FaceTime.

This is such a sweet scene, so inviting, and so characteristic of what was possible Before and hopefully will be again.

I would love to browse in this shop it looks so interesting. Sad that travel will be limited for quite a while. Thank heaven for technology and we are still able to keep in touch with loved ones far away.

I love this. The shopkeeper is a wonderful marketer! Oh I do believe this worldwide adventure is going to pass. First we endure, then we overcome!
