Sorry this has taken so long, I was just lazy. :-) Tuesday 30th came around and Mum decided instead of getting me a traditional present wrapped up in a box, she and Dad would give me a flying lesson instead. It was scheduled for the next day at 9:00 a.m. So on Wednesday 1st may, I was surprised when Dad woke me up at 11:03 a.m! I got up, had breakfast, (porridge) and waited. At 12:45 p.m. I hopped in the car with dear old father and Sam, who was staying with us for the week, and drove to Te Anau Airport.
