Staying with Auntie Julie in Raumati

I am currently staying with Auntie Julie, Uncle Jason and my naughty cousins in Raumati.  I am feeling a little stressed because so far, I have been stripped naked on several occasions and had my possessions removed from my backpack and scattered all over the house.  I have been forced to do a very scary bungy jump from a high balcony, and I have been cruelly thrown into a skanky paddling pool fully clothed.  This is a picture of me drying out on the balcony after my horrible cousin Imma abused me most horrendously.

Yesterday we went to Wellington to the Te Papa museum and saw many weird things including a colossal squid.  We were shaken by a fake earthquake and saw the magnificent "Sheep cam" exhibit.  I thought of my friends Roger and Tarzan when I saw this.  After our cultural exploits at the museum we went to the botanic gardens where cousin Imma did muchly puking and events were brought to a sudden halt. However there are many other reasons why we left early....but I cannot be bothered to recount them here.  Apparently, in the botanic gardens at Wellington, they do not serve white coffee.  They will, however, serve you a black coffee with a jug of milk.....which is most considerate of them!  Then we picked up the ill-fated hire car!

We awoke this morning to find our hire car had a flat tyre, and the spare was only a temporary number.  Mrs Pet Human had to drive all the way back to Wellington at 80km/h which annoyed the locals.  Auntie Julie made matters worse by insisting that we use her sat nav.....when the sat nav said "In 400 m turn left," Auntie Julie said,  "That's wrong, ignore her" and gave us all a long description of the many possible routes.  Mrs Pet Human was very stressed.

Anyway - we eventually got a new car and ditched Auntie Julie's sat nav (and Auntie Julie), and cousin Imma guided us to our next destination with something very strange indeed.  I believe it is called ........ a map!  Then we went to Karori Wildlife Sanctuary and Mr PH took pictures of ugly green things while we all ate ice cream.  Then we came home and went in the hot tub and had a chinese take away.  Now it is auntie Julie's turn to do muchly puking.  This family has no stamina.  I am now very worried that somebody will  slash my tyres tonight and I will have to go through it all again.
