What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.
It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

While everyone is back to work, it's holiday time :)

That's the best part, going on holiday when the weather is brilliant and everyone else has gone back to work.

This week, wife and I went north, to the Bay of Islands, did a bit on scuba diving and a few days just cruising around the bays. Wife found snorkeling a great exercise for her troublesome leg.

We stayed at a very posh airbnb but because of the heat, wig and makeup wasn't always the thing to wear.

There was the odd morning (and I do mean odd) when it was cool enough to wear wig and makeup.

Okay, so that wasn't the odd morning I was talking about, this has become my normal morning while on holiday.

But some mornings I just wake up feeling a bit extrovert and I do currently like to explore a more edgy (for me) type of clothing.

I wish every month could be January, another week and I'll be re-joining all those others in traffic, in airconditioned offices, staring out the window and wishing I had won Lotto.

I love holidays

I know it will have to end soon, I know I'll have to join the 9 to 5 group eventually

But in the mean while, it's time to be me, it's time to have fun  😇

Touring with the wife

 Good excuse to borrow her blue dress, but when we're out together, I'm limited to mascara.

Heading to petrol station to re-fill and use the car wash

Americas cup, back home in Auckland, New Zealand

So we weren't too happy when Dennis stole the cup by putting a catamaran into a mono-hull boat race. It's nice to have mono-hulls back for the Americas cup racing and especially amazing to see the technology with the use of foils and other refinements.

The racing done, very upset we couldn't have international visitors, but still fun to be able to watch the great event in my home city.

My morning started off with the need for short skirts, especially shiny thin material, just wish my mesh top wasn't so long.

I decided, as the day was getting on and my outfit was more for night time, a quick car change to more respectable clothing for a trip to the beach and a visit to Bunning Hardware (wife's after some serious storage racking and other stuff for around the house).

Wife also wanted a paddling pool for the grandchild, but I got distracted with the idea of a new battery drill. Wife asked "Who went to Bunnings?" - I replied with a smile - "Rachel"

Weekend of Christmas shopping

It would seem, no matter how many malls I visit, I just can't find the right gift.

I've searched Sylvia park

I've searched Newmarket mall

Finally gave up, went to Bunnings and bought myself a mini green house, a starter tray and a few seeds. I also got blue marker paint so wife can design her new garden.

As I'm writing this, wife marks out her new garden - this is the outline she has planned (kids think it's funny, not sure about the neighbours though).
