Dianne Webb is getting so excited about her upcoming cruise. This one goes to New Zealand, and Di will be catching up with relatives who live over there.
She will be spending a long day in port, in Auckland, and that is where she will meet up with them, some of whom she hasn’t seen for many years. I think one of her cases will be full of Christmas presents to hand out when they all celebrate a wonderful reunion just a few days short of Christmas.
