Man just accidentally emptied his bag on the bus as we swung round corner. Unity amongst passengers as we harvested and returned his items.
Back from a church meeting about being good dad. Now thinking of my own dad, his dad, me as a dad and God the dad as i tweet off to sleep
i saw this sign out of the bus window last week as i commutted to work and thought to myself that i needed to get a picture of it. luckily we went out for a walk with our friend Abbie on Saturday afternoon and happened to walk by it ! so here it is in nice clearness rather than out the bus window wobblyness !
lady sitting nearby on the bus is planning a holiday in cambodia. Now can’t get the song out of my head.
as commutes go, it’s quite a long one, but quite pretty on a nice day like last Friday when i had a day trip to wellington to my other office
airnz is great.
they have a really funny safety video which they show on short haul flights (you’ll probably need to watch it twice on youtube here) and they give you a bag of sweets (which they call lollies, but there were no sticks to be seen)
and when it’s nearly time to land they give you a boiled sweet. apparently airnz tried to withdraw these complementary sweets but the whole country revolted. so they were reinstated.
you’ve got to love a country which is completely laid back about everything except a free boiled sweets to protect your ears when on a plane.
i think i’m right in saying fireworks are only on sale in NZ for 3 days before bonfire night, which is why it’s a novelty and people get so excited about them. here’s a chap setting up a firework display. if you click on the picture you can see he’s a rather short fellow, perhaps having become a victim of his own success. he also seems to have wired his ears in to the detonators.
great afternoon with big nosed ugly guy and his normal nosed beautiful family.
