What a great three days we have had.
Labour weekend's weather forecast was for wet and cold days with intermittent showers and instead here in Nelson, it was fine and warm and sunny.
We were able to show off "our place" to our visitors .. Alexander's new family. A great time was had by all and there was lots of talk about the wedding, bouncing ideas back and forward.
Ian and I are standing on the right, Robyn (Kristin's Mum), Alexander, Kristin, Jamie and Matt (Kristin's sister and her boyfriend ),and Hayley, Kristin's other sister in front, Graeme (Kristin's Dad) is taking the photo.
Alexander is flying to London on Thursday by himself...he won the Dyson Kiwi Young Designer of the Year Award and is off to enjoy his prize. His boss is meeting him in Dublin and they are going to watch the All Blacks against Ireland. He is also going to Italy and Germany, so he is very excited.
He is an industrial designer but has an interest in all design...he designed Kristin's ring.
Well, it is such a beautiful day that I am now going to sit in my garden with a cup of tea, reflect on the weekend and the lovely people that we have got to know better and enjoy the fruits of my labour.
