Guess Who is Staying Close by Our House?

Mum had another busyish night last night and finally got home around 6am.  She had a touch of breakfast and then managed about 3 hours sleep, making a grand total of 5 hours sleep in the past two nights.  She did arise in time to watch on the tele of the royal little family arriving in Wellington.  They were lucky as it was cloudy and misty, weather that often closes our little airport.

They are staying at Government house, which mum lives just across the road from (a 2 minute walk away).  So as she had her shower she could hear the band playing, then the haka and while I was having a snuggle there was a cannon going off!!! Such excitement!!  I was good and didn't run and hide.  Mum was enjoying my first snuggle of the winter, the first time I have sat on her knee for about 8 months.

We are not sure that we will be catching up with the family, they need their privacy after all, but we will keep you up to date on their visit.

Mum has to go into work for about 2.5 hours, then she will be home again and things will be back into a normal routine again.

Enjoy your Monday everybuddy!!

  12. Wow, we didn't know you lived smack dab in the middle of "Important People!"

    Ditto that George sure is getting big. Maybe your mum will catch a glimpse of them in person, even without trying. :-)

  15. It's neat to live in the nation's capital. I live about 1,500 miles from mine, and though the Royal Family often travel across the country when in Canada, they still seldom get closer than 100 miles away. It must be quite exciting to have the next two kings visiting!

  18. We love the royals! It's wonderful that Prince George could accompany his mum and dad. We wonder if they know that the world famous Poppy lives only a few minutes away?

  19. Oh how exciting, Poppy! We do hope mum gets a peek. Baby George is just so sweet. We are certain they will enjoy your lovely country. When William and Kate came to Canada they didn't come to our city. Meow, Jessica
