Tripping Over

Auckland, New Zealand

After returning from the Bay of Islands, Helen, Hayley and I decided to return to Auckland for a couple of nights before facing the reality of working and living in Rotorua!

The night started off quite civilised in a lovely little pub called the Palace, just off Queen Street. We met up with Amy, (who is living and working in Auckland on a placement for the year) Jonathan, Erin and one of their friends (can't remember her name!) Amy and I decided to start on the White Russians (so yummy - kahlua, vodka and milk) and then we all decided to walk to another few bars near the Viaduct.

I felt a bit woozy but I stress - I was not drunk!! We were walking down the hill and I slipped over on one of the hazardous drains, and skidded along the pavement and winded myself! It was quite dramatic actually - I screamed and everything, blood was dripping from me and it was all tingly!

Amy and I started walking back to her flat to get some plasters and cotton wool but saw a hotel and called in and asked for the first aid kit. There was a grumpy old bat on the desk, who couldn't have cared less if i'd dropped dead in front of her! Luckily a nice chap helped us and gave us everything he could find to mend my finger.

After refusing to go to the hospital, we headed back into town and carried on with our night. Turned into quite a good night considering the drama and Jonathan made my night by saying, "You handled that very calmly!" Haha!
