At work hoping to sell a ๐ŸŽ or two however it’s fairly slow these days. Have got a few Suzuki Swifts imported that has just arrived not bad prices so hopefully once these are ready for sale we may get busy. So slow at the moment I have been thinking of washing some vehicles ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Wanna buy a car!

Long Weekend Trip

Hamilton was the place to go to this trip, had booked a motel for a couple of nights months ago so thought it was time to escape Auckland for the long weekend (Auckland Anniversary) was the long weekend although when at Hamilton we found they too was having the Monday off!

We decided for a break and to also have a look and costings with rents etc and found these to be great. It was good just to have a look at the local area and see just whats out there apart from Auckland. Went to the Hamilton Gardens and spend two hours looking around here which turned out to be nice although once arriving we went to the cafe and ordered breakfastโ€ฆ.. In the cabinet we noticed a cup cake with a dead fly in it ๐Ÿ™ Thank goodness we werenโ€™t having that!The gardens were great walking around and just taking our time looking in the heat of the day ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh I almost forgot this was our meal at the Hamilton classic car museum this place is great for meals and the cost is reasonable ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚The good thing for us was we worked Sunday and left after work for Hamilton and returned on the Tuesday that way everyone was already back from the Monday long weekend and we had little traffic ๐Ÿ˜€

Qnap Server

Have finally done the finishing touches on the new server I have setup for movies and website. All working well just a few more things to sort and it will be all go although the movie side is finished.

Using Plex for the software to run along side the server for movies etc. The software is great and works very well ๐Ÿ˜€ All in all fairly easy to sort out which is great.The remote makes this unit very easy to navigate around when looking for Movies, Music etc ๐Ÿ™‚


At Botany today as Julie is having her vehicle serviced so we decided to go to Dennys for something to eat ๐Ÿ›โ˜• great food and fantastic coffee just what we needed ๐Ÿ˜† thank you for the food and company Julie โค

Off to Kmart now!


Came to work this morning and I have a white board in the entrance to my office however I had these visitors the other weekend that dropped in for a chat and coffee. This morning however I noticed a message from themโ€ฆโ€ฆ Shows how relaxed I am these days and donโ€™t notice too much! ๐Ÿ˜€

Itโ€™s A New Year

So 2017 is here and we all have a little time off I gather so what are you all up to? We decided to go for a drive to the shore nice drive to Devonport ย via the coast, Mission bay etc. Julie drove so it was nice to relax as a passenger ๐Ÿ˜€City of Auckland in the foreground.

guess where this fish is and guess what is here hidden?

Ended up at Glenfield mall for a bite to eat which we enjoyed. We had both been amazed at this tree as it has all sorts of life on it ๐Ÿ˜€ Donโ€™t see these in West or South Auckland!ย 

both enjoyed the drive and walk around Devonport and the mall, great to get out this side of the city as we hadnโ€™t been here in sometime, the cafes at Devonport had been very busy people everywhere hence why we ended up in the mall as this was far better with less people around ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you Julie for the drive ๐Ÿ™‚

Dinner Time

Hope you all had a good Christmas.

We decided to go south and have some takeaways at Papakura on boxing day however it was closed ๐Ÿ™ never mind we thought….. Let’s head to Karaka as there is a good fish n chip shop to have some nice takeaways! not so as they had been closed… Never fair Kingseat takeaways is just down the road we will go to that shop….. not bloody so as that was closed… Okay that’s all good as we are on holidays and we will just drive until we find something, mind you I suggested a takeaways shop atย Waiuku…. Traveled to this and yep you guessed it closed! In the main street we found a place booming with business, I wonder why…. We ordered and went to a place I used to have a cache hiding and ate there, it was nice.

Headed off and on the way back we went to Glenbrook for a drive and stretched our legs!

ย enjoyed the drive and of course the company ๐Ÿ™‚

Meadowbank Pizzeria Visit

My darling husband suggested we have a Xmas treat and have beef lasagnes from this amazing place. We usually go once a fortnight to stay within our budgets. However it’s Xmas time and the owners advised us last week that they would be going back to Italy for most of January. Hence my lovely husband suggesting we have this again to get our fix before the drought that will be January!

Imagine our surprise when they presented us with a large ham and cheese pizza as ANOTHER Xmas gift. We were delighted and have decided that we will not bother going anywhere else for takeout food as these guys are the BEST!


Christmas Garlic Pizza

The wife and I went for our take out this evening and when we went to pick up our regular order the owner greeted us with a Merry Christmas and gave us garlic pizza for Christmas, what a surprise so friendly and a fantastic place for authentic Italian pizza a pasta. Meadowbank Pizzeria ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ•๐ŸThank you for dinner Julie.๐Ÿ˜˜



If your in the area we highly recommend this place they are honestly fantastic and well well worth the visit.
