Hello from the South Island, New Zealand....

Just in case you are wondering where I am at the moment....?
I'm galavanting around the South Island of New Zealand.
But I'll be back soon with lots to show you.
Here's a seat...so sit down, relax and take in that view...

See you soon


  1. I WAS wondering about you Neesie. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us. If it's anything like this view....well, I'm not going anywhere. I'll be on that bench until you get home.

    1. Awe that's kind...I am taking so many photos that it's going to be quite a task to sort through and be selective in which one's will reach a post. ;D
      I'm happy to hear that you like the bench. I loved the view and did sit there for a while...it's on the grounds of a golf course. We then went for afternoon tea in the club house. A very enjoyable day.

      I hope to visit you soon to see what's been happening in your part of the world. :D

  2. Spectacular photograph--I could sit there for hours admiring that view.

    Enjoy the rest of your trip

    Love Chrissie xx

    1. Thanks Chrissie...it was a spectacular view and we enjoyed sitting there taking it all in.
      The scenery here is breathtakingly stunning and I've taken masses of photos. So inspiring ;D

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Have fun and enjoy the week whatever you have planned :D

  3. Wow, what a beautiful view! Lovely scene! Enjoy your trip!

    1. Isn't it just Eileen,
      There are so many magnificent views at every turn.

      Thanks for your comment and I'll be back soon (unfortunately :( ...nothing personal you understand... it's just I don't want this to end)
      Catch you later ;D

  4. Wow, wonderful view! Have fun! Hugs, Valerie

    1. Yep I am having fun Valerie...just times flying by unfortunatley and it'll all be over soon :(
      Have a great week and I'll visit as soon as I can :D

  5. Enjoy your outing! Thanks for sharing the view. It's spectacular!

    1. I will Nan...no problem there LOL
      It was my pleasure to share the view...it was too nice to keep to ourselves.
      I'm glad you enjoyed it too.
      Have a great week ~ enjoy! :D

    1. Indeed ;D
      Thanks for popping by...have a great week!

  7. Just gorgeous! Enjoy! Be waiting for pics of your travels. :):)

    1. Oh my...I've been so busy and clicking away like mad!
      It may take me some time to edit...plus I haven't finished yet.
      Still more to see ;D
      Stunning scenery and breathtaking views. It's certainly a fantastic place to visit. An added bonus has been the incredible weather...it's autumn now but we've had brilliant sun filled days and the colours are just changing.
      I really don't want this trip to end...but I know it will :(
      See you again soon xoxo

  8. Hi Neesie ~ Coming over from Laurie, (Love a Cloudy Day). I knew if Laurie enjoyed your blog, I would too. Loved scrolling down, and seeing some of your previous posts...We have a little Shih Tzu named Molly that certainly reminds me of your cutie. Same color and big brown eyes that melt me. Nice to make a new friend.

    1. Hello Wanda, it's always lovely to meet new friends and I'm so happy to have you pop by my place ;D
      At the moment it's very quiet here due to me galavanting but once I get back to Melbourne it'll be full steam ahead again.
      I'm missing Mufftypup so much, but I think it's because she's my shadow when I'm at home. But I know she'll be having such fun with Zac so that helps. Molly sounds a cutie too. They do steal a big chunk of your heart don't they?
      Laurie is someone that has really influenced me over this last year.
      She's very special and I'm honoured that she calls me her friend. :D
      I'll visit you as soon as I can. In the meantime thanks for calling and enjoy your week whatever you have planned.
      Have fun!

  9. coming over from I love a cloudy day. I am following so I can read more of your blog. I love your pooches. I came to Michigan from England and I have relations in Australia. I must have a good look around your blog and so I will be back.I have to go for now but look forwards to reading more

    1. Hi there Janice, it's so nice to meet you...
      Thank you so much for visiting and deciding to follow me. I really appreciate it.
      I get so excited when I see someone new in my followers ;D
      I hope you enjoy your future visits and I'll be back to posting soon.
      Unfortunately, my New Zealand adventure is coming to an end...but I've got hundreds of photos to make sure that I have lots of memories captured for future reference and wonderful inspiration.
      It's certainly a small world isn't it? I'm wondering what part of the England you came from and when, plus where in Australia your relations are based. Nosey I know, but I just can't help myself! :D
      Hopefully see you again soon ~ enjoy your week and have a great weekend!

  10. I came over to say hi from I Love A Cloudy Day blog where I saw your lovely scarf gift. I would adore to visit Australia and New Zealand some day, and my hubby and I live in California.

    1. Well hello there Terra,
      It's so nice to have you visit. I was so surprised to see what Laurie had posted today...but then I should have realised that she would do something. Isn't she a lovely person ;D
      I really loved sending her the gift and I knew that she would be pleased to receive them...I just never expected something like that!
      I recommend that you put both Australia and New Zealand on your list to visit in the future. They are both fantastic places...but then California isn't bad eh?

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope to do likewise once I stop my galavanting :D
      Have a great week whatever you have planned. Enjoy!

  11. Hi there just popped by from Laurie's blog. The scarves are beautiful. Love the photo above. Sadly I only managed to get to the North Island - we have friends there and paid them a visit when we were travelling in Aus. ( Our son worked in your beautiful country and we visited him and then he traveled with us before we all went back to UK. Would love to return - maybe one day. Anne x

    1. Hello Anne,
      Thanks for popping over to visit...it's always great to meet new people and I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into my posts.
      We visited the North Island of New Zealand at the end of last year but wanted to see the South Island too. We weren't disappointed and if I had to chose which I liked best...I honestly don't think I could!
      Here's a link to a previous post about the North Island when we visited the http://neesienatters.blogspot.com.au/2012/10/rotorua-north-islandnew-zealand-part-1.html (but there are many more to choose from) I may well have visited the same places as yourself.
      You may like to take a look at some of my photos to bring back some of the memories.
      Have a wonderful weekend and thanks again for your lovely comment :D
      p.s. I've got to write my post now so there will be lots more photos to follow ;D

    1. I know Cat...I could have sat there for hours.
      We were really lucky with the weather too, which enabled me to take gazillions of photos! ;D
      Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic weekend with lots of fun ~ enjoy!

  13. OH. WOW. Have the tea ready. I'm coming over.

    1. Oh I wish you could Minnemie...we'd have a such a lovely natter ;D
      I hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

      Argh! I've just taken a peek at your blog and you've been busy! I've missed them all but will visit soon to catch up.

      Enjoy the weekend whatever you have planned, I'm sure it'll be full of fun and games! See you soon :D

  14. It is absolutely gorgeous isn't it....xx

    1. It is indeed Tracey. I enjoyed every minute but unfortunately I've landed back with a bump and it's time to get busy now.

      Heaven knows when I'll get through the gazillions of photos I took :?

      Have a great weekend and I'll pop over to your place soon...pop the kettle on! xoxo

  15. Oh wow, I'm so jealous, Neesie! By the way, I just noticed I missed your amazingly gorgeous peacock drawing a couple of weeks ago. That must have taken you forever to get done. I hope you are having a grand old time. Blessings!

    1. Oh Arnoldo...you'll make me blush giving such wonderful compliments.
      I enjoyed drawing the peacock and surprisingly he only took two sessions (I had to have a break to give my eyes a rest) and was so enjoyable to do but unfortunately I missed the deadline. You know me...I'm always at the tail end of these things.
      I hope to add some colour to him over the next week now that I'm back from New Zealand but I've got so many other things all fighting for attention...it'll be difficult.
      Thanks for stopping by...I really appreciate your visit and opinion of my designs :D
      Have a wonderful weekend ;D
      p.s. they'll be lots of photos of NZ coming soon. I recommend that you add it on your list of places to visit. It's fantastic!


I get so excited to see you here and love to read your thoughts and comments.
I always try to answer each one personally (I think it's only polite)
...♥...I truly appreciate your precious time here so thank you ...♥...
