Good weekend – Spring is here

Had a good weekend when we had two barbecues (one here and one at a friends). On Saturday we hosted the end of season gathering for Mark’s soccer team. 37 people (13 adults + 24 children) came spent the afternoon here – we had sausages on the barbecue plus other good food and drink. Very enjoyable to catch up with everyone and start to think about next season.

On Sunday we headed over to friends at St. John’s for their daughter’s birthday party. Again a nice barbecue and good company. Kim discovered Playstation SingStar which was scary – luckily after my first attempt I was excused from attempting again.

And it was Father’s Day in NZ on Sunday and my family recognised my space opera withdrawal and gave me a couple of Star Trek DVDs to complete my Star Trek movie collection.
