It's been a hectic last couple of weeks, so blogging has taken a back seat. Maybe it's time to get a laptop so I can blog while away!
Mrs Inventory and I spent a great week in the South Island. Firstly, a family celebration in Christchurch, then a few nights in Queenstown. We drove down last Tuesday - the day of the "big blow" in the south, and fortunately missed the worst of the winds. It was a spectacular trip down through the McKenzie Country, the Lindis Pass then to Wanaka and finally over the Crown Range into Queenstown. I hadn't been to Queenstown for over 25 years, and much has changed! Te scenery down that way is simply stunning - still a lot of snow of the Remarkables, Coronet Peak and all the surrounding ranges - it really is a place of natural beauty. We did a round-trip to get home - over to Cromwell, Alexandra, then following the "Pig Route" to Palmerston and up the coast back to Christchurch. All in all a great break away from the stresses of work, and maybe, just maybe, the opportunity to expand our service into the Southern Lakes area in the New Year!
Now it's just the simple matter of catching up with all the work that didn't get done last week .... oh well, it was good while it lasted!
