So we got up to another storm, which did not quite prevent us from going to Toast' training at Mana, and not Paremata, as we had been mis-directed. After a surprisingly worthwhile session, we went home to wind down, post clothes and prepare for Viv's birthday tea, a curry at Mr India to which we had also invited the Millers and the Boons. This was as good an evening as you could ask: good food, good company and cake at the end. Now all that remains is the sleep afterwards. That is all.
