Where did the time go?!?

Gosh, it's hard to believe my last post was nearly a month ago!  Christmas flew by, then the New Year arrived looking simply fabulous, and now here we are nearing mid-January of 2015 and I haven't said boo!  Never fear, I will spare you a long-winded recap of all that has transpired in the meantime, and give snippets of updates with accompanying photographs by way of summary.  I shall endeavour to be less waffly going forward, lest you grow tiresome of my loquaciousness.  You're welcome ;)

Last trail run before Christmas, on the Okura Bay Walkway

My running company for this go-round.  Great people.

Checking out the new water feature along Marine Parade in Napier

Christmas Day picnic at Lake Tutira

Boxing Day fish & chips on the beach, and rock-hopping afterwards to burn some of it off

Last sunrise in Napier before heading home

A lovely reminder of how we began our married life, in the quaint little multi-denominational Eskdale Church.  Pretty, isn't it?

Having some fun on the family farm outside of Te Awamutu, during a stop on our trip back to Auckland

14th wedding anniversary dinner - Hector's Restaurant at The Heritage has an outstanding vegan/vegetarian menu, as well as excellent meat-based dishes

Finally, some new trail shoes!!!  Love.  And to 'christen' them, a 25km run through the Waitakeres.  They got sufficiently muddy :)

The 'trail'...

I feel so lucky to live in such a wonderful, beautiful part of the world.

Early Thursday morning runs are back on the menu!  17.5km and a sunrise.  Brilliant.

Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, Bastion Point.  Always ran past, never went up there (because, hill).  Will definitely swing by more often.  Lovely views, beautiful gardens.

Going to watch The Penguins of Madagascar.  Movie theatre selfies are ridiculously tricky!  And I'm sure the lack of lighting is to hide people stuffing their faces with unhealthy snacks...  Check out those boys ;)

Family trip to visit the Manukau Heads Lighthouse.

First coastal run for 2015 - Takapuna Beach to North Head and back, 13.5km

Love these guys :)

This post is short on words and big on pics.  We'll call it the 'scenic drive'.  Next post will be the facts and figures for 2014, and a bit of waffle to go with.

I hope this year is going well for you so far!!  See you again soon.
