Excerpts from a Saturday


Getting creative with whatever I could find, which was quite a bit.

As Major General Helga, I reported for digging duty around at Miriam and Jon's.

They have a lot of "liquifaction"; silty sand stuff, about a foot deep, in their yard.

This is where their garage stood!

Daz, right, is being his usual disgraceful self!!

Our lovely Dave came over in the afternoon.

G is showing him a cheesy pic of he and I from the cruise, that the in laws bought and had framed for us.

G was telling a story, I can't remember what it was about, sorry.

Don't blame it on the sunshine, don't blame it on the moonlight, don't blame it on the good times, blame it on the.....

CD mess.

The "An Education" soundtrack is my fave at the moment.


Mikel came around too, and here he is inspecting the awesome dunny.

He was impressed enough to unload in it this morning!!!



We had a great jam.

We were totally plastered!

I even had a bash at the drums!

It was great night!!!

I actually feel rather cleansed today!!!

Skyping with Vix and Sarah with a few glasses of bubbly certainly helps!!!

I love your military look!! 'You look fierce, lady' (I don't know if you get Gok Wan in NZ, but that was an e-impersonation of him).

Nothing better than impromptu booze fests after a hard day clearing slurry and inspecting the outdoor bogs. Love the beret outfit too!

Never thought I would see you in camo Helga! *lol*
Looks like you had tons of fun.

Alex said...

Major General Helga should feature in every post. I think you've missed your calling in life - no-one should be allowed to look that fab in camoflage!

ps - G's beard is looking rather good! Is he aiming for ZZ Top-like length?

Love the photo of you armed with shovel. Food looks amazingly delicious. Like G.'s jacket in the "story of the dangling sock"
