We drove up to Auckland two days after I arrived as I wanted to spend time with my friends and goddaughter.
I stayed there for two nights, we chilled the first, just a quiet dinner then partied at home the second.
My cousin and family friends as well as another friend, Simon all came over for drinks. I cooked carbonara and we danced and chatted the night away.
In the morning my goddaughter was dropped back off and we took her for a walk to the park before her Daddy blew up the pool for her.
My parents arrived mid arvo to sweep me away to Whangarei in our rented motor home to visit other family and my uncle, aunt and two cousins had flown in from Aussie who also had rented a motor home to holiday around up north in.
