We travelled down to the Hawkes Bay, then to Dannevirke, then Palmerston North, and finally up to see the in-laws in Tahuna. One exotic location after another.

It was nice to be home after a long trip. There was no loyal hound waiting for me, nor was a faithful swineherd ready to take me in. On the other hand, I was relieved to find that I didn't have a household filled with suitors to slaughter (I'm awaiting the result of the Weatherston trial to see if manslaughter would have been a viable option). The worst we had to deal with were a messy house and loads of things to unpack. I always find with holidays that by the time you get home and unpack you're exhausted again.
Anyway, before I post anything meaningful I have to catch up with the world. I hear there are troubles in the Balkans and that the Austro-Hungarians aren't happy about what happened to their archduke. I predict trouble. Also I need to catch up with the latest news about the death of that musical genius. And before his time too. Poor Mozart.
Maybe I'll post something sensible tomorrow.
