It's Easter weekend....

Here in New Zealand, public holidays mean that there are no advertisements on tv all day long.
That sounds like it would be wonderful, but it's not all that.

We end up with lots of silly movies that 'star' people I've never heard of or, in some cases, whole seasons of a program back to back.

But, at least, I don't have to listen to ads for things that I have no intention of buying.


A little taste of America

I knew there was a Dunkin' Donuts in the Auckland airport because I
saw their bags with the wonderful treats wander through Wellington airport.

I was surprised to find that, according to their NZ page, there are FOUR 
in the airport and only 3 outside of Auckland.

Since, we were taking the MIL to the Auckland airport, and I only knew about 
the shops there, I thought it would be nice to get a doughnut or two when we
dropped her off for her flight home.

Driving in the big city isn't something we like to do, so Hubby's research 
found that there were two in Hamilton--a much smaller 
town, easier to navigate-and we'd be passing through on our way home.

I am a very happy camper, having had a piece of the US for the 
first time in eleven years and Hubby was a bit impressed, too :)
