It's Monday night and I'm back home. I've been staying at the holiday house (small sort of place that sleeps 19 - more if you put up some camp beds!) of croquet friends. Of course I was with The Girls (Jayne, Colleen and Sandra) who take me away with them when they go off to tournaments. Well, actually, on this occasion I drove them. The house is in Mount Maunganui just off the seafront. It was the perfect retreat for three generations of a family. Yesterday morning I stood on the first floor balcony and looked out. What struck me was the fact that I couldn't see the sky. I'm used to skies. But I'm also used to electricity. In this case I think I'll forego the sky and make do with the electricity cables and poles.
