    Default selchie's arrival.....

    Hi all,

    Just to let you know selchie and Karin have arrived safely in NZ. We met up with them briefly yesterday and they are lovely! Dawn & I are meeting them for a coffee this morning. They are tired but felt a bit better after a wee siesta

    Will keep you updated if they can't get internet access themselves.

    Glad to know they've arrived safely and contact has been made. Hope the tiredness will soon go and they can enjoy what NZ has to offer. Just go easy on them, you Hamiltonians. You don't want to scar them for life.

    Haven't you got any more photos of the visitors? These are great action shots. Looks like you had a riotous time. I seem to recognise the location, too . Hope it's still in one piece . How long was it before the police knocked on the door?

    OK, I won't ask.....

    I forgot to take photos until the last hour or so, so that was the only few I got, but selchie took quite a few throughout the night as I recall, so maybe she'll post some at a later date *gulp*

    Your place is just about in one piece - well it will be after we rebuild the one wall that Dawn knocked down, like a bloody tasmanian devil she is, I swear

    I think the Police knocked on the door about 11pm, but they didn't stay long - perhaps it was the hip-hot latino session that Dawn threatened to subject them to
