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.

First proper girl time for 2015

Firstly, lets just say, on New Years Eve, with thousands of young girls running and jumping up main street at The Mount, in tiny tops, while drunk, I was expecting some classic "costume failures".
While this was not to be, the hot 40 year old sitting adjacent to my wife and I, had forgotten to put undies on, and was showing us her very pretty lunch box. Somehow it got burned in to my memory and I'll always smile more at the thought of dessert now.
Did a bit of surfing while at the beach, all these years being married and looking after kids I had forgotten what fun surfing used to be. The waves were only hitting about 4 feet,but it did take me back to the days of being single and carefree. Wife says I should get back in to it, especially as the wet suit still fits, wonder if she meant buy an old station wagon (1966 HD Holden with mattress in the back) with a roof rack and a board

Back in Auckland, it's so hot by 11 am my makeup is starting to melt, but it's nice to show off my summer dress. Checked the hardware shop for a special light bulb, had McDonalds coffee.
Such a beautiful day I wanted to see the Auckland water front, and all the people from the cruise liner.
I ended up having brunch at The Viaduct, a restaurant called The Foodstore while watching the hundreds of tourists visiting our city.
I had to get some groceries on the way home and nearly ended up having to catch a toddler standing in a shopping trolley while her mum disappeared to the other side of the shop - I might be crazy, but not as crazy as this mother. While the mother in question was pretty, I think I had the better (aka slimmer), more feminine body, and that fact makes me happy.

3 pancakes, but was full after 1, wish you were here to help me finish the other 2.

Thanks, it's a nice soft material that has a bit of cling to it. I should have worn my cooler dress, but I prefer how this shows of my bod shape, and the colours are too pretty.
