Going on Holiday With The Entertainment Book.

We paid $55 NZ for the Entertainment Book and saved roughly $360 Australian. That saved us over $300 on things we would have paid for any way! We have just returned from ten days in Cairns and Port Douglas. They were ten lovely memory creating days and we had a fantastic time. We did all […]

A Walk In The Woods And Then Yatra.

I have a 13 year old, she is a very typical 13 year old and we always love each other. That is all I will say. This weekend she was grounded for doing the things 13 year old people do. Being grounded means a family walk with no technology. In the past couple of months […]

Petone- it is NOT THAT FAR PEOPLE.

I can’t believe the amount of people who think Petone is like a million miles away.from Wellington. From our house, up near Mount Kaukau, we can be there and parked in 15 minutes. Parking is easy and the drive is pretty. In the past few years Petone has grown into a foodie heaven. It is […]
