Everywhere you go you always take the weather with you
It was still very hot after we said goodnight to everyone and turned in last night. It's still pretty warm, but there has been some rain overnight, and just as I was getting the boys up there was the most enormous roll of thunder. It looks fresher and greener in the garden than it has for a little while. I've never been sure whether it is the rain rejuvenating the trees and plants, or whether it's just that it washes off the dust.

It was good to be at David's confirmation, and an enjoyable evening afterwards too. I think plans for tonights BBQ might have to be changed to a indoor meal - time will tell. (I've tried very hard to think of a meal that accounts for everyone's dislikes. How about veal in a tomato based sauce, sprinkled with cheese served with cabbage and beans, and oh yes, a few mushrooms as garnish). See you this evening after school's out. Ben not expected until after 6pm when one of us goes to collects him, but we are not bothered about waiting for him. He could end up being back late and that will just make the evening too short - so we are eating without him.

If you are really planning to serve
veal in a tomato based sauce, sprinkled with cheese served with cabbage and beans, and oh yes, a few mushrooms as garnish then we will probably forget to turn up.
However, as this seems unlikely, we will be there at an appropriate time. You still haven't answered the "red or white?" question.
The predominant weather for today is apparently "light showers", so maybe indoors will be good. One Chris is home and everything is settled, I guess it will be somewhere between 5:15 and 5:30.

24th Jan 1987
I enjoyed reading that, I think I've seen that part of the web site before, it was a nice reminder.
The real pain about Andrew's results being delayed is that next Monday he is in work and unable to get the time off to go and collect the results. So, we have to wait until they post them. It is such a pain because the marks we are waiting for could possibly make the difference between a 1st and a 2.1 - and we are obviously wanting to know the final classification.
Made Auckland a third world city for a day
As distinct from "for several weeks". I was living in Auckland in early 1998, when it was possible to park on Queen Street for as long as you wanted, so long as your car looked like a diesel generator.
So just a few hours would be a breeze. I'd already read about it at Stuff - sounds like good fun.
