Work has been hectic, yet luckily the extra hours I've put in to get the End of Month orders finished have been mostly from home where I can wear what I want. Yet I've been missing the public outings.
I've also been helping my wife with renovations as well as the normal duties with the kids.
It's just a few minutes past dawn, and in a few hours Miss 16 is on a school bus to the Tongariro National Park to do "The Crossing" a 20km hike in snowy conditions over a volcano. I have not, in the recent teen years, known her to walk more than 600 meters to school, so 20km will be something different for her. I always thought I would do the crossing years before her and even now wish I could go with her to look after her, plus I was trained to survive in such areas, but she reckons her "hot" maths teacher will look after her, I'm under the impression lots of girls will be fighting for a position directly behind him so they can watch his bum during the hike.
As East Auckland is a pain on busy days, I stopped at one of my local McDonalds, but found at 6.30am instead of the usual elderly, a whole lot of young males with high performance cars, and a couple of others who look like they had just come of the farm. Farm girl was bigger and scarier than farm boy - know who wares the pants in that family, anyway decided to do the extra miles to my regular McDonalds. The coffee girl was already making my order up as I made the trip from the ladies room to the counter. Anyway I digress, being in man land a bit long, this morning finds me in a shear see through top, shiny micro mini, leggings and over the knee slut boots for coffee and a trip to supermarket. While coffee was fine, walking around the supermarket in these boots is not advisable, very surprised I didn't faceplant and these boots will be in the bin before weeks end to ensure I'm not this silly again.
Miss 16 took my camera on the hike, so here I am trying to figure out how to drive the spare camera.
