Friday night was much as it might have been expected to be, with the usual things happening. Viv and the boys were here at around the time I arrived home; the evening passed by in its usual way with us watching Blue Heelers before going to bed. I'm bound to say that I don't recall a great deal of what happened on Saturday, but I'm sure it was very good...Christopher left us early in the morning to go for a week's holiday in Hastings/Napier with a friend's family. It seems very quiet without him.
On Sunday morning, Matthew and I presented a dramatised version of the story of Eli and Samuel. I found the part of Eli, the exasperated priest who keeps being woken up by an enthusiastic youngster, quite easy to relate to.
Monday was Wellington Anniversary Day, a local public holiday. The weather started very badly, so we played Trivial Pursuit until the boys were bored and we declared it a draw. After lunch, the weather had picked up and we went over the hill to the swimming pool in Wainuiomata. They have a heated, outdoor, Olympic size pool.
We had Chinese for tea - see dinner.
This morning, I went off to work; Viv and the remaining two boys went off to Wanganui where they will stay overnight with Sandra and her brother, being shown the bright lights of Wanga-vegas. Which shouldn't take long. As for me, today was annual review day, a day never looked forward to with enthusiasm, but not too bad once you are there.
At the newsagent today, Unlimited was available, as was the new Star Wars part-work and the one we didn't receive last week. At the station tonight, they were giving away copies of the Hutt News as a spoiler to stop sales of the new Weekday News.
It's time to fix up something to eat before I go off to Vestry, a meeting to fix up things we need to do, such as a date for the church's AGM. More soon.
