Hi Guys it was lovely to speak to you again. Looking at the photos of NZ the place looks absolutely stunning, really a bit like Epping green if you close one eye and squint! You both must be getting bored or old as the main reference to your latest blog was your cheese and chutney sandwich, which after reading did make my mouth water and really fancied one. I agree no other sandwich filling would have done the viewing justice. Let us know when you get into contact with Jamies friends, please try and scrub up Rob don’t want them thinking that I may have a resemblance to you and your body hair (although I do if I don’t shave often) keep well and safe. Miss you both loads. Bev xxxxxx

Hi Darlings
No matter which way you cut it, it's still a cheese sandwich, are you sure you are eating proper as thoes sandwiches seemed to last a week. As always the photos are stunning, I dont want to panic you both but I would really love to come to NZ now. I love you both - keep safe Mummy Jean
