We were supposed to be on the first plane last Monday, and we are still in Christchurch.
There are some issues with weather at Scott Base, a condition 1 storm has caused the runway to be unusable so we are now waiting for the staff to rebuild the snow runway so we can be on our way.
In the meantime I receive a text message at 5 each morning informing me of a cancelled flight and spend the day cruising around Christchurch.
We went to the driving range and I practised my pitching wedge skills (I'm not a golfer).
I have discovered Souvlaki (Greek kebabs) and today we took a van for a mission to Arthurs Pass.
