Interesting weekend

Woke up early and excited for a fishing trip on my friends boat after I helped fix his fish finder and toilet. Wives attended and it was a fun days outing.

OK, so our wives did most of the catching and catering

The day was perfect and the company was great.
On the way home, we were discussing the engine noise, the owner mentioned how the belt was a bit slappy at low speed but ran smoother at high speed, and sure enough it did, and within a second or 2 the alternator light came on.
We didn't really need to worry about power as diesel engines don't need power to run. About 2 minutes later, a great fog of smoke bellowed from the engine.
Grabbing a load of life jackets and fire extinguisher and ensuring the women were at a safe distance it was time to find out the source of the smoke. The owner slowly opened up the engine cowling with me at the ready with the extinguisher, only to be welcomed with a cabin fill of smoke so thick I could barely see the far side of the engine and expecting the inrush of Oxygen to cause more problems we waited.
and waited
and waited.
With the smoke clearing, we discovered the alternator belt also powered the water pump.

30 minutes later, having replaced the belt, watching as replaced water ran freely out a frost plug at the top of one of the cylinders, we decided it was fishing time again..

Rangitoto Island to our WEST

2 hours later of fairly good fishing, we realised that the Coast Guard while good with GPS locations (had our IPhone been enabled properly) were not that hot with the old fashioned triangulation or have any understanding of what NORTH was as opposed to SOUTH, luckily our high power lamp assisted them locating us.

Anyway on to Sunday -  Brunch and shopping day with my girlfriend, and a new dress for me. It's nice to be out with someone who can take photos for my blog. By 10.30am, Sylvia Park shops were getting a bit full, but it was a very enjoyable 2 hours.

I can still feel the rocking of the boat from Saturdays outing and my hands are painfully sore from fishing and bringing up the anchor each time.

I hope you have a great week

Normal outing day

Of course it starts with coffee,
but this time I mix it up with a date scone. The chef also added a hint of orange rind along with the normal cinnamon
- That's my idea of living radically.

During my hour at Columbus Coffee, reading the paper and The Womans Weekly mag, about 30 people came in for brunch, including 3 families with young kids (8-13 year old).

I should really thank Miss 15 for the use of her velvet tights, and my wife for her pink top (that I bought specially for her)

After weeks / months of sunshine and not a drop of water, today weather is a steady soaking which is doing the garden lots of good, but limiting my outings to indoor pursuits. I was tempted to go to the cinema at Newmarket but parking fees would probably cost more than the movie. I phoned my wife and she requested some groceries, so I stopped at Meadowlands shopping centre for her, and ingredients for some home made pizza. This is one shopping centre, that if 2 people visited at any one time, shop owners would get overly excited.
At Countdown grocery shop, the woman at the checkout ahead of me had a lovely leopard print bra under her thin white blouse, I might have been staring by the way she smiled at me.

So now I'm back home, having made my wife pizza and a cup of tea while she studies her University course and hopefully does her assignment. I'm glad she is not put off her work by my cute velvety bum or large breasts.

4.05pm and just having a nap, when wife woke me in a panic to get out - we were having a wee earthquake. By the time I got up, the earth had settled down. I decided to remove my makeup and boobs and put on a normal boys t-shirt, soon after my oldest daughter (who doesn't know about my hobby) came home for dinner, and also a female friend of my wifes.
Daughter commented on my tights - probably expecting wife to be upset, but she didn't react,and I even let wifes friend feel how smooth they were while my tights were the topic of conversation.

I also had to pick up one daughter & her BF, go to shops with them, pick up another daughter from church, all while in these tights and grey t-shirt.
I love these tights

Having a blond day

OK, so my lovely wife says "blond makes you look like a transvestite"
Some things I can accept, I mean really what is a technical term for a male body to be dressed as a female. Actually due to our multi-cultural society we have many names depending on ethnic back ground, and I can't spell any of them.

I would like to point out, after going to McDonalds for coffee in a corset and my posing at a park and shopping at Mitre 10 hardware store, I did replace the blond wig with the brown for my brunch with my favorite girl who is also the only other girl I know who has the balls to go out in public - ummm something doesn't sound right but you know what I mean :)

While at Mitre 10, I asked the SA for some shade cloth, she proceeded to the far end of the garden section, while I, in my blue dress and very limited striding capabilities, had to nearly do a funny little trot to keep up. Actually she got to about 15 meters in front of me before she stopped at the appropriate area
