Check the calendar and see if it's the school holidays

Viv said she didn't need to do that: looking out of the window is enough. Indeed: a very heavy rain storm and clouds so low and dark you feel you could reach out and touch them. As the train approaches the harbour, the harbour has disappeared. Either a heavy fog or a fault in reality. I remember standing on Bridge Street looking down at Woodside. The ferry terminal was visible but not even the slightest clue of the river beyond. That is all.

Have a day

At the book sale at Dymocks, I bought
Benny and Omar by Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl)
Maverick by Ricardo Semler
Hegemony or Survival by Noam Chomsky
Islesof the Dead by Emily Rodda (Deltora Quest)
and then I came across Bryan, who gave me a lift home in the rain. Thank you!
This morning it was seriously miserable, as I mentioned in the other entry. This news wasn't brightened by the fact that David had broken a window in out front door for the second time this year. Thankfully AMI is a very patient company.
In other news, David got his learner's driver's licence today. This costs $79. Membership of the NZAA is a consequential $38.50 and adding him to insurance is $44 (with a $1000 excess). Congratulations to David!

Sitting in the car outside the church hall, waiting for David and Matthew. The sodium lamps provide illumination. The only sound is the persistent pitter-patter of the rain on the car roof and the click of the keys as I type this. It's not the most exciting life, but we are not always in search of the most exciting life. According to The Economist, the British eat more chocolate than anyone else, while Luxembourg has the highest per cap alcohol consumption. Just thought you should know. That is all.
