Well Easter is over – The Classic Fighters AirshowÂ successfully finished,Â local harvesting all but complete, the leaves on trees andÂ vines alike are turning rustic, reds and browns.Â Temperatures are droppingÂ – must mean that the busy season is over.Â Time to reflect, take a break or just sit back and wait for more guests that are hopefully still travelling around to call in.Â Its hard to believe that we are already into May and inÂ just 4 short months we in New Zealand, will be hosting the Rugby World Cup.Â Here at Olde Mill House we Â already have bookings for September so if you are hoping to come to the World Cup and want to stay in Renwick, Marlborough dont leave it too long to make your bookings or you may be disappointed.Â We hope not, so go on, Â make the commitment – book now.
Â On December 27 th, guests Laurence Bracewell and Anna Kurtschenko arrived for their two night stay.Â After the initial settling in they decided to take our cycles and do a tour of some of the local wineries.Â Â Â Â They were away for several hours and when they came back Anna proudly announced that Laurence had proposed to her and that they were now engaged.
Hi, I know its been a while but we have been very busy.Â Back in January it was Roberts Birthday and our eldest daughter decided to come home for a surprise visit and bring her youngest son Toby.Â Well, even if I do say so myself, I did a pretty good job of keeping the secret.Â On the 25th I told Robert that I had to go the shops so off I went, but to the airport.Â I picked upÂ Amanda and Toby and came home.Â I sent Amanda up to the house first and as hoped, Robert was blown away – he said “what are you doing here”!Â Â Â They stayed for four nights and we had a lovely time catching up and spending some wonderful time with Toby and Amanda had a well deserved break away from the rest of her family.Â Quite a successful few days.Â The only thing is that it seems like months ago and its only just over 3 weeks ago.
Well Jasper has been with us forÂ just over Â a month now.Â He is quite a character, getting into mischief repeatedly.Â We have planted a small lawn at the back of the house so that he has a play area that is enclosed and in which (eventually) he will be able to play unsuprvised.Â However he is such a mischief he keeps pulling the instant turf up.Â He also has taken a fancy to the rock garden outside the back door.Â Already I have replaced the plants twice.Â Even though these are naughty acts, I wouldnt be without him and his mischievious ways.
At long last I have my new Border Collie puppy, Jasper.Â I picked him up from Pukekoe near Auckland Monday week ago and he spent his first 8 days with my family in Auckland before making the big trip home to Blenheim where he has settled in to a routine really well.
He is so much fun to have around and already I have a shadow whenever I am out in the garden or hanging out the washing.Â I’m sure that if we have the pleasure of your company at the Olde Mill House, Jasper will be there to say hello.
