So we decided to watch the DVD Ghost busters last night…. What a disappointment. Didn’t watch it till the end as it was that bad, thought it may have been okay to watch and get some enjoyment but sadly we became bored fairly quickly. Rather than I go on about it follow this link instead for the low down.

On another note we have been watching the TV series Million Dollar Listings LA and although it is a reality show about real estate brokers it isn’t too bad, look forward to watching this each week,ย the current series has finished however another is on it’s way ๐Ÿ˜€

Mercer Visit

So we slept in (day off) ๐Ÿ˜€ and we thought why not go to Mercer, to the local cafe as I was talking with a customer at work and he suggested if we like a good cafe meal go here as it’s great food.

We ended up getting to Mercer without too much traffic although the other side of the motorway had the NZ Police on it directing traffic! No such thing on the way back though:D

Ended up having the deluxe breakfast with the famous Pokeno bacon, egg, toast etc with coffee, and Julie had eggs benedict with bacon. The bacon was not cooked well at all, along with my eggs, it’s a pity we have lots of food outlets in Auckland and not cheap ones as this meal was almost $40.00 and yet it wasn’t the greatest we thought, each to their own I guess but we thought we really should have gone to Denny’s ๐Ÿ™‚ The drive however was fun and of course the company was the best ๐Ÿ™‚


Weather (WX)

So what’s up with the weather these days?

It’s been warm, cold, windy, calm, raining, fine……. I’m not complaining about the cold to be honest as we would rather the cooler weather however the rain I am over it! The weather reports are for around 30 degrees this month so one of the salesman tells me today.. Really.. I’m hoping not myself. It doesn’t help with the customers (rain) that is.

On a brighter note, it’s a long weekend in a couple of weeks ๐Ÿ™‚ Usually I work the public holiday but this time I am going to have it off and spend the extra day with my lovely wife ๐Ÿ˜€ We are going away for a couple of nights so looking forward to it so if it’s warmer we won’t mind ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward to seeing the Sister and brother n law too! Enjoy your own long weekend people!

We watched The Legend of Tarzan last nightย thelegendoftarzanย we enjoyed the movie the graphics had been great with all the animals etc, story line was good too so it was nice to spend the time relaxing and watching a movie together ๐Ÿ™‚ย


We have both been crook the last few days even while being sick herself my darling wife has just kept going herself and looked after me well. Even while I have been in a mood she still looks after me well.

Thank you Julie I do appreciate you very much.ย heart


Aquarius TV series

Created by John McNamara, Aquarius is an American crime drama television series that follows the events of the 1960โ€™s that involve Charles Manson, the infamous cult leader, and a Los Angeles police sergeant who tries to bring Manson to justice. Starringย David Duchovny.


We have been watching the TV series and have found it to be a great series, It’s interesting and amazing what peopleย did, even in those times, great acting so its enjoyable to watch. It’s just finished series two which we thought was better than series one and we hope they make the third season as it was air marked for six seasons however the ratings in the USA are down which surprises us ๐Ÿ™

If your wanting a good series that is part of Americas past and is a good watch, then look no further ๐Ÿ™‚

Day Light Saving

So people it’s Day Light Saving as of today.. Hope you all had your clocks forward and you are looking forward to that extra light in the evenings ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s been raining here at Cheap Vehicles (work) most of the day and yet people still come in to look at vehicles, you know if people come in when its weather like this that they are serious in purchasing a vehicle.

Looking forward to dinner tonight.. Takeaways and it’s middle eastern night tonight which we enjoy when it’s good, it’s a nice drive too even in the wet.

Cleaned my car yesterday that was silly as it’s rained since! Mind you good exercise to be honest even though at the time I didn’t think that mind you it showed in the afternoon/evening with bsl checks of low! Haven’t had that for some time now so things are working well!

After today just one day left of work until I have my two days off ๐Ÿ˜€ the days go fairly fast for me now a days so glad of that as previous they seemed to go rather slow…… It will be nice to spend time home with my lovely wife ๐Ÿ™‚

Has anyone seen the New Zealand movie called Hunt for the Wilderpeople

nz_movie_ย We watched it last night however I fell asleep not sure that it was due to the movie however the wife had said it was an okay movie (I’m sure she will comment on it) ๐Ÿ˜€ I may have to watch it again when I’m more awake ๐Ÿ™‚ We enjoy watching movies so you may see the odd one coming up from time to time.

Hospital Visit

Out tonight with my darling wife visiting family at the hospital and decided to try a photo from the window… not bad we thought, light rain this evening however enjoyed the drive in I guess that’s due to me being the passenger ๐Ÿš—



Recently been going to the Hospital due to visiting family and the other night while we were walking through the hospital there had been the fire alarm going off! heard one of the hospital workers over talking to staff stating its a gas leak however after our visit we could smell burning later the next day it was told it was a fire that was contained in a bathroom air conditioning unit….. We had been impressed with the services of the fire department with there response and quickness to deal with the situation.

Good to know they are on top of these things given where it was.

It’s always a nice drive to and from the hospital together time isn’t it Julie ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

West Auckland

Went out west the other day to see family and enjoy the drive also had to be out this way to get a couple of tires fitted to the wife’s vehicle.

It’s going ahead slowly with the new added roading to the motorway so seen I wasn’t driving I thought it would be good to try and capture the added roading, looks impressive when driving out this way so will be interesting to see if it helps! ย Barry & Trevor this will look different to you guys if you haven’t been out that way in a number of years ๐Ÿ™‚
