Welcome back

One of the hardest things about owning a small guest house is not knowing exactly what kind of guests are going to turn up on your doorstep. One of the best things about owning a small guest house is that some really nice people end up on your doorstep - and sometimes more than once! Yesterday's guests fitted into that category - they had come to visit as part of a group of four in August 2007 and my children remembered everything about them. Last time they taught them how to make animals with shadows and this time it was how to spin batteries.... Having people come more than once is great for the kids as it means we don't have to go through some of the nervous, hyperactive behaviour which seems a prerequisite of every first meeting.
The woman is going to New Zealand for one year on a working holiday visa from April so it was good to be able to talk with her about what she wants to do there and give her a few hints about the differences in culture etc. If anyone is in the Napier area who needs a part time worker etc. or knows of anyone who is in need of a part time worker then please let me know! I'm sure she would be a great worker.... Or if anyone knows of any belly dancing classes in Napier, again let me know! Nanna - I'll write to you later, but she is really looking forward to coming to see you and eat some of your wonderful sushi! Just no seafood please!

    What fun was had, I really like your deck as well, must be fab to sit on the deck in the summer lap top in hand...ah...

    = )

    P.S. I added you to my blog roll = ) thought I did before but ... "wink"

  2. Hi Girl Japan
    Thanks for commenting on our deck... it only took us 2 years to actually build it! I would love to say that I have the time to sit around enjoy it, but.... perhaps in 10 years time!
    Thanks for adding me to your blog roll. I am slowly discovering more and more people in similar situations to us with great blogs. I am enjoying yours too!

  3. I didn't notice belly dancing but the starbucks in Napier had a notice up about women's only pole dancing lessons?? :)

    I will see how we do tomorrow morning at the docs and hopefully we can come in for a cuppa afterwards? You may have logged off already now but will ring you in the morning anyway.
