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.

Busy weeks, now overcompensating

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.
