The previous post is dated – a while ago. We went to England in 2010. On the morning our plane landed at Heathrow – 23 hours of flight time broken by a short stay in the transit lounge of LAX – Labour had lost the election but no clear winner had emerged. The Tories were quite chirpy about the results and at that point we should have got a bite to eat, a snooze and got on the next flight back to New Zealand.
We stayed for another eighteen months before turning south again. We’ve been back in NZ since November 2011 and live by the sea in Karitane, Otago.
