The Slow Season

Hi everyone ,
So it's just at the begining of the so called slow season here in the lakes. Easter school holidays are over and snow sport season won't start until late June and thus it is the time when traditionally Wanaka folk ease back , take stock and ...well , get bored I guess.
The Autumn colours are pretty amazing around these parts at the moment but I imagine winter will approach rather rapidly.

Rachel and Mud and I have had a wee holiday (just within the south island) and are a little bit rested and recouped.
Mud has matured into a lovely polite and sweet dog.(he was these before but even more so now)

Rachel managed to give up smoking for a couple of months but slipped back into the bad ways recently. We are currently entertaining the concept of trying to find an affordable house to buy which , given the criteria, isn't going to be easy.
There are plenty of affordable houses still around New Zealand but anything in the vicinity of where we are currently living seems to be really outside our budget- or at least , starting at prices which would be at our very most streached outer limit. Still , it's kinda exciting just thinking about owning a piece of earth.I doubt we will be buying anything in the immediate future but hopefully , within the next year.

Here are a couple of photos to look at . (One day I'll actually take photos of Rachel and Myself to post)

Congratulations to Manolo and Monique on the birth of Oisin and To Billy and Phillipa on the impending Small.

Hope this finds evryone well.

Thairocksuperstar, look out for those interest rates at the moment, but be assured that they will probably plateau soon and maybe even drop. Id fix your term for 2-4 years. Look forward to seeing photo's of you guys. Keep making great coffee and never stop trying to make it even better! Brock.
