HAPPY EASTER AND HOLIDAYS
I have just finished packing our gear for our big Easter trip to Timaru for the long weekend. We are off to the VW Nationals, held in Timaru this year. Colin is still fine tuning the carburetors on our Beetle as I write this. …eeekkk. He hasn’t been feeling very good for the last few days, out of breath, fevers, aching body and feeling like being sick.
The Hematologist saw him yesterday for his usual monthly check up at the Hospital, his blood levels are ok, we are still waiting on the special blood test done about a week and a half ago. It is to check his blood for any cancer cells, we were hoping for the results to be back yesterday so we can have the news before we go away, but they are not here. Nevermind, we are sure they will be ok. :)
We have been focusing and looking forward to the VW Nationals for around 6 months now. Hopefully if Colin is feeling well enough and the car is all up and running we will be away in the morning at 11am driving in convoy with some members of our Dunedin Club. It will take around 4 hours to get there. He is feeling and looking a bit better today. :)
It will be awesome to do things with otherVW Enthusiasts (VW nuts) and go to the events and see the ‘Show and Shine’ on Saturday. The show is all the other Vee Dubs on display from all over New Zealand. There will be some neat cars and vans there, we can’t wait. I have my camera packed. :) We hope to see some other Karmann Ghias too to give us some ideas for our one that Colin is restoring for me. I hope lots of the public will attend too. Some cars will be judged under different sections. I am so excited.
There is lots of social events to go to over the weekend with everyone too and some meals out and prizegiving on Sunday night. We arrive home on Monday. I have my knitting ready in my bag, a Frankie Magazine, a cake of chocolate and some clothes. And my warm PJ’s, the weather is forecast for more rain and cold. We are all staying at the Timaru Motor camp. There is already a plan of having a bit of a party in one of the motel units with the Dunedin bunch…. Colin and I have a Deluxe cabin. it will be fine. I wonder if there will be a heater :P
I hope you all have a nice Easter and if you are lucky enough to go away too, then I wish you safe driving…and enjoy eating chocolate. I will share some VW pics with you now. …. and more on our return. Ta Ta
