So much has been happening, where shall I begin?
We have been away a lot it seems, my Mum has recently moved (after thirty years) from Taieri Mouth to Mosgiel so we have been spending a lot of time there. Mum is in a lovely, sunny part of the town with awesome neighbours, only a few moments from the local shops. Everyone we've met is very kind and friendly, I love it.
Winter is well and truly here and it is the best so far! Pete, Vanessa and Hartley are having great mornings at Coronet Peak. They are away by 7.30am and come home exhausted but happy!
I've had my cataract fixed since my last post. It was in time for me to enjoy the colours of Autumn (which was brilliant, I love Autumn) and of course didn't hurt and was nothing to worry about. I thank all my friends and guests from all over the world for your cards and emails of encouragement. I didnt realise how easy and how wonderful it would be, I should have done it earlier.
I nearly forgot, more exciting news...
Tripadvisor gave us an award! The latest addition to our office reads:
2015 winner tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence awarded to Queenstown Motel Apartments. I am proud to have it on display, it proves our staff are keeping up our high standards. Thank you for taking the time to write such wonderful things about us and our accommodation on tripadvisor. We are glad you appreciate the passion we put into making your stay with us the best it can be without overwhelming your budget!
Time to get ready to start my check ins, I am going to repeat a hint from last year since we are getting big frosts again...
My hint for this post is:
Please don't put any water on your windscreen or anywhere else on your car to remove the frost or dirt. It can break the windscreen and freezes on the driveway making it treacherous. Either use a scrapper (we have them available to borrow) or simply start your car and let it warm up slowly and defrost. (the car likes it this way too)
I wont be gone so long from now on, but til next time, take care.
All the best,
