Our last trip 'home' was back in 2009 when we went for Christmas. It was Little Guy's first visit and you might recall how worried I was about the long flights. These days Little Guy is a changed person. He can sit still for fairly long periods although he does still talk a mile a minute constantly. Unfortunately the flights I booked and paid extra for, pre-earthquake, have been changed so we cannot fly direct but we can't do anything about that. (not complaining)

Three weeks will go very quickly. We have a week with my mum and family in Auckland. Our stay wouldn't be as much fun without a huge road trip - more on that later - in the second week. I've roped Dad into coming with us. Our last week we'll be back in Auckland doing boring stuff like going to the dentist, getting my hair cut and probably a doctor's visit as well.
It will be winter so we're crossing our fingers for decent weather. We love the cold but are not so keen on cold rain. I'll ask the weather Gods about that tonight. Yep, it's official, I am obsessed with the weather.
