We set off for David's hockey game a few minutes early. The morning was bright and sunny, but with a bitterly cold wind blowing. David's team won the game by 2 goals to 1, and David was awarded Player of the Day, which is an honour for the last game of the season. Certainly he had contributed to some significant defensive play, blocking goal attempts by the other team.

A disappointment was that the sausage and steak man wasn't there today, so after the game we set off in search of a sausage sizzle. Didn't find one.

Instead, we went to Upper Hutt where we bought some paper for our computer printer, currently down to only a handful of sheets left. We had lunch at a bakery I had never been to before - Mr Tran - opposite Logan Street. David and Matthew both had mince pies, I had a chicken pie. Both were very good. A short journey back to Stokes Valley for coffee and the start of a game of Diplomacy as the sun streams through the windows and gives benefit to our lazy cats.

United have woken up again, and I see that the flight to Los Angeles actually arrived 14 minutes late, while the flight to London is currently expected to leave 15 minutes late but arrive 5 minutes early. In the old days, detailed information about the schedules of flights was not available. I don't know for sure whether this is a step forward or not.

Coffee is served. Let the game begin!
