Poshtel by maggiemae

Poshtel

It was John’s 85th Birthday and after a most delicious lunch in a restaurant it was a Doctor’s visit to get his many stitches out.
To cut the story short it was late and I had to get some more antibiotics for him. While coming back from the chemists in the dark, I took this picture of the new Poshtel Hotel with lights on.
It was an old abandoned building and the owners transformed it into a luxury hotel.

Three Good Things:
1. I gave John some chocolate Turkish Delight and I don’t care if its turkish or Iranian or not - it is certainly a delight!
2. We both refer to google to learn more about whatever we are discussing.
3. Lots of telephone calls from friends!
Nice capture of the lighting

Happy birthday John! Sounds like you had an eventful one! I am so with you on GT#2 what would we do without google? I like your posh hotel...a great addition to your town to cater for the important people.

@brennieb It may turn out to be quite serious, Brennie -but old skin does not heal well.

@happysnaps Most of the ensuite bedrooms are over $200NZ, Valerie - but beautifully decorated and comfortable.
June 10th, 2019  
@happypat Yes, the only other hotel caters for the 100's of Asian tourists who stay the night while seeing the penguins, Pat. So this is where you can stay and enjoy the experience!

Multiple colors light make it look fancy. You two sure stay busy
June 10th, 2019  
Cool colours

@fayefaye The lights change every now and then to purple and lavender, Faye!

The Turkish delight sounds grand

@digitalrn Its really like hard jelly surrounded by a thick layer of chocolate, Rick! Absolutely divine!
June 11th, 2019  
Happy Birthday to your husband. it does sound serious. I hope and pray he will heal a lot more before your next doctor appointment.

Love those coloured lights MM, very flash. Happy Birthday John, and do hope very much that the healing proceeds according to plan. OA sucks.

@bruni Thanks for the birthday wishes, Bruni! I'm feeding him lots of Vit C via red peppers and kiwifruit hoping that might make a difference! We will probably never know!

@golftragic The rather large wound was supposed to be dressed and cleaned by a district nurse but she never turned up! Then the nurse at the medical centre said if it was an ACC accident (as most are) then you don't get the district nurse service! I think that was a lot of b##@sh%$$#@t!

Great capture of all the colorful lights. Tell John Happy Birthday and best wishes! Hope he gets well soon.
June 11th, 2019  
Looks like quite s poshy building.
June 11th, 2019  
Neat colours in this building. Happy birthday to your dear man and hopefully his leg gets on with the healing!
June 11th, 2019  
@dide Thanks Dianne! If he puts his leg up any higher, he will fall on his back! Here's hoping!
June 11th, 2019  
Great lights. It's so inviting when the hotel is well lit.
June 11th, 2019  
@haskar I think the same! Similar to one's home when lit up ready for visitors!
June 11th, 2019  
A fabulous colourful shot of your Poshtel. Crossing fingers that John's wounds heal very well now.

A beautiful night shot. Happy Birthday to John!
June 11th, 2019  
Happy birthday, John! Hope he is feeling much better really soon
June 11th, 2019  
Happy birthday John! Nice birthday present to have all the stitches taken out.
June 11th, 2019  
What a funny thing to do at the birthday. Taken out is better than putting in.
June 11th, 2019  
@kwiksilver He only got about 10 stitches out,Gillian. The rest -30 or so, had not healed. A bit of a worry!
June 11th, 2019  
@yaorenliu Because his skin was and is aged, Yao - healing is not a given!
June 11th, 2019  
@maggiemae Sounds like it to me MM, not good enough. Can you complain somewhere effective? You definitely need skilled help with complicated wounds. Poor John, I do feel for both of you.
June 12th, 2019  
@golftragic John is going to take it further when he goes tomorrow for a check-up with the doctor! This doctor - youngish lady - is good looking and seems to be a good doctor. But when she goes out of the room she bursts into almost hysterical laughter! Weird!
June 12th, 2019  
@maggiemae Mmmm, that does sound a bit odd. But so long as she's a good doctor I guess it's ok. I do hope she can get some action for John at home.
June 12th, 2019  
@maggiemae Oh dear! I hope the rest heal quickly!
June 12th, 2019  
I'm glad to hear the stitches are out and hopefully year number 85 will be a great one! Cool lighting. I really love all the creative things "repurposed" buildings are being used for. Good shot on the run!
June 13th, 2019  
how wonderful that he was able to get out and enjoy lunch on his birthday
