Have returned from a pilgrimage to the sacred city of Wellington for the weekend. Time off with no kids for the two of us to visit friends and family. Stayed out at Raumati Beach with my brother and his family, went the commissioning service on Sunday of friends heading off overseas this week with Wycliffe, caught up with an old Uni friend, meandered around old haunts and purchased extra luggage to cope with the various secondhand book shops that we came across. Plus the Hurricanes beat the Chiefs (didn’t look like it at half-time) at the Cake Tin (though we didn’t go to the game).
All in all a very successful, relaxing and peaceful few days. Now some solid work is required over the next few weeks while I’m still fresh from it.
