here’s len brown.  he’s the mayor of the recently formed auckland super city

which means he has super power.  he tried to fire a beam of christmas spirit at me using his super city super powers

he asked me how i thought his display of power went.  he tried to influence my decision but i was getting mixed messages.

sometimes your face can give away your true thoughts whilst you body language is trying to convey something different.

the farmer’s santa christmas parade is an annual event which happen every year at christmas and features a santa.  farmer’s is the name of a shop (a bit like john lewis for you brits).

santa isn’t actually a farmer.  although he might be.

there were lots of ‘fairies’ sprinkled in between the different floats to keep the crowds amused.  it looked like they’d only just found their way back after a rather chaotic halloween party

this is for warren who is a regular reader of funkypancake and who i go for occasional health giving walks.  it was his birthday yesterday and we saw this little man whilst out walking last week.  so here it is.

i recognise this from a board game of some sort but can’t remember what it is.  drop me an email if you know !

here’s the british products aisle from our local supermarket

101125_850_img_3868.jpg

it’s what they think we crave

101125_850_img_3869.jpg

but we’ve not really bothered to get anything from here as not only it is real expensive, but it’s stuff we don’t really want

101125_850_img_3866.jpg

but interesting to see what we might have been missing.
