i'm back!

after an amazing holiday i hate to admit that i'm secretly excited to get back onto the blog and start posting again! before i get back into the swing of things i thought i'd share with you guys a little bit of what i've been up to over the last few weeks...

pedey and i spent christmas in waiau, a very small town about an hour north of christchurch, with his family. it was really strange to all of a sudden be in total isolation in comparison to the busy city... but it was amazing to get away and have some quiet time. we did a trip out to hanmer springs in the mx5 and that was nice too. if you ever go there you totally need to go on the new waterslides - super rad!

we later roadtripped down to mount maunganui, pedey driving the glorious impala with me tagging along behind in the enormous 3L diesel turbo super custom van. as you can imagine, i was most impressed by this arrangement. after driving god knows how many kilometres in the van however, i must admit that it has grown on me. i do enjoy the fact that we can throw a mattress in the back - i'm not a big fan of sleeping in tents! after spending a messy night in gisborne at rhythm & vines, we spent the remainder of our holiday at the mount. we couldn't have asked for better weather, it was so amazing and i am super happy with my tan! i decided to keep my camera away for most of time and it was nice to have a little break from taking photos, but we did manage to sneak a few snaps of the impala on the way home. it has to be one of the most beautiful cars i've ever seen...

a quick random bB snap - i never realised my girlfriends flatmate jodi owned a modified bB - check it out...

i actually quite like it! on different wheels it could look pretty sick. i've just spent the afternoon cleaning my own bB and i didn't realise how much i missed him until i got home yesterday... he is so beautiful! i am sad because i'm planning to sell him soon - stay tuned on the blog for more about that. tomorrow i'm taking him out to attend the 2011 canonball run event which is going to be huge! auckland motorsport never fails to impress with the canonball events and this will be the third that i've been to, and this time i've entered my own team. watch out team nz performance car, the girls are going to kick your ass tomorrow!!!

happy new year everyone!
