The Nui

// March 28th, 2005 // Life

Great trip to the Nui. (Jan’s new name for Wanganui – its time has come)

Noo Noo came down and babysat while Jan & I had a night away from the kiddies. We…

  • went to Max & Autumn’s art show and bought 5 paintings! (Reproduced below)
  • saw Jan’s mother Dee in a stage production of The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole – she was the highlight of the show
  • ate Maccas with Jan’s brother Chris, his other half Brenda and Jan’s nephews and nieces
  • found two geocaches
  • witnessed a three car pileup directly in front of us on State Highway 1 (no one was injured)

Lovely to go and even lovelier to get back to our boys… except I have to do some work today, wah…

    The last two paintings are by an old friend of Jan’s, Max McGrail. The first three are by his daughter Autumn, who is Jan’s god-daughter. They participated in Wanganui’s Open Studios at Easter weekend. Amazing artists, both of them!
