A Journey to the Waikato





Rob's new job with Life Care Consultants has meant a huge amount of traveling as he upskills in so many new areas all at once...full immersion.  There are 5 mandatory staff meetings in Hamilton each year. The first just last week. Since the Shop was "closed" it was easier for me to to go with him & we made it an adventure too.
On an early morning walk in Edgecumbe Park I found these beauties.

On our way in to the city we took a slight unintended deviation & found the most marvelous antique shop. Owned by a very passionate "Adam"(a young man for the industry) who had a huge collection of pharmacy ephemera & knew a great deal about my great grandfather William Jeffery & his Te Awamutu chemist shop.

It was so lovely to catch up with aunty Shirley...always the same kind, sweet lady : )....and be able to pick up some vintage sheets that I had bought on Trade Me from just 5 doors down in the very same road!! 

Loved French House on River road on route to Shirley's
