Favourite quote

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.

Today we recognise the contribution to our lives, made by our war vets and fallen solders including our brothers in Australia. While it was based on the first world war, we now appreciate all those that have fought in any conflict to create the freedom we now enjoy.

Today, I had planned with a Southern girl, to meet up and take her for coffee. 2 days ago she started to get concerned out going out and yesterday cancelled her outing.
For me, it means I can have an hour to myself and then get back to my daughter who slept over last night as she flies to Christchurch Friday morning with her mum for the rest of the school holidays.
When I get home (and she eventually wakes up) I'll probably take her to the field and let her fly my RC helicopter

OK, so my hour of girl time starts with a coffee from McDonalds, taking a few photos of me in one of my daughters XS purple tops and big boobs, skinny jeans and wonderlust perfume.
I think a lot of the dawn parade participants have turned up here, lots of children (1 girl told me I had lovely hair), a mum with a smaller bum than me - ha ha, OK so there are about 10 more mums and a quite a few dads with larger bums, but I still like mine the best.

Soon, hopefully, I'll get to the hardware shop as I need some butane and aluminium welding rods to repair my patio furniture. I would also like to get some 5 mm glass for another project on my friends boat but that will mean some more specialised tools, so I'll probably have to go with a clear plastic :(

Wife's birthday tomorrow, I should check to see if the weather is good for snorkeling or white water rafting as a present.
