Weekend at the Farm.

 I love chickens

Well back from my weekend visiting my relatives, had a great time! My cousin was having his 21st, and I didn't get to see any of my family over Christmas so it was a long overdue trip. It was really great to see some faces I haven't seen in years, was only there for the weekend but we got to do a lot of stuff you cant really do in Wellington (since they live up North its really quite a lot warmer. They have a really cool property too, it has a river for swimming, room to keep horses, tracks to ride quad bikes on etc.
Waterfall too.
Really think the time out in the sun was good for me, I do spend way too much time inside but with the constant rain and wind in my town I don't feel very motivated to go outside most of the time. About the only part of the trip really was the bus ride there and back, going up was during the day and I went with my younger brother so it was fun (but 10 hours long) but the way back was really awful, I got the night bus back hoping to sleep through it but I ended up wedged between two sweaty men, and couldn't stretch out so was awake 90% of the trip, one of them got off the bus at their stop and I was able to steal their seat, but it was when we were 20 minutes away from my destination anyway.

Such is life though, all that time of the bus was well worth the trip.
Some of you might also remember that I went to The Hobbit casting call auditions, no word from that yet but on my form I put down that I was able to ride a horse, so I was pleased to see I still could. Honestly there was just so much to do there, they even had a trampoline so I made a short video of my brother, thing with my brother is he has red curly hair everyone loves so doing flips on a tramp is especially funny to watch.
Yep hes pretty good at them. 

Unfortunately all good things most come to and end, and Im back in Wellington and naturally its raining and windy all day every day again. Still, feel recharged a bit from the trip and a bit more positive day to day just holding on the memories. 
Did I mention I love Chickens?

  3. It sounds like you had a pretty good time, and I'm hoping to see you ride a horse in The Hobbit sometime soon. Oh and you should go out in the wind and the rain, it's epic.
