Well I've been home again for nearly 24 hours of which I have spent nearly 8 1/2 asleep in one solid, deep sleep without recall of a dream and no pit stop! So I woke this morning feeling refreshed and raring to go. I spent a few hours catching up with emails and phone calls and having coffee and scones with Wendy. Then I went to play croquet. The weekend tournament was very enjoyable and I played well so have returned a happy bunny even though I only managed mid field results. I did add 32 points to my handicap index. I may soon recoup the losses I incurred when I had the disastrous start to the season.
In Wanganui we were staying with a friend and fellow croquet player, Jill, whose fridge had various magnets on it. As you know I love reading other people's fridge magnets:

However the rainbow late this afternoon as seen from The Cottage was rather wonderful:
And so to bed.
