Its windy, icy cold and I am exhausted. Tucked into bed with my electric blanket on, a cup of tea, blogging and chatting on MSN... the high life!
Well it was the high life yesterday. I have friends staying with me because it is school holidays here in NZ. Yesterday we visited Sky Tower which is the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere...people bungy jump from it... I did not - lol
I tried to take a photo from the bottom looking to the top but couldn't get a decent shot, still gives you an idea of how high it is....
here is the Princess and her friend at the bottom of the tower, which is now my favourite part of the tower!
The Princess is standing on a see through section of the floor, you can look down to the ground, all the way down to the ground, I made the mistake of doing that and also looking straight down from where the Princess is standing, it was not a good idea!
The top platform of the tower had NZ's highest sweet shop, it was great, they gave the children a bag of sweets and candy floss spun into the shape of the tower - free! We were 220 metres/780 ft off the ground at the point. It was not a point I enjoyed!!!
and back down to the bottom, couldn't have happened fast enough for me!!!
and finished the day out with a quick stop at the supermarket, a much needed bottle of wine for me and a carousal ride for the girls!!!
House Update - both contracts appear to be falling over, not concerned, whats meant to be will happen and if not something better around the corner!
