It's been a long day. Gareth (Gaz) and Carol arrived last evening and it's been pretty full on relaxing and showing them the delights of Napier that I've come to accept as my life. It seems to be that when one lives in a place all of a sudden it becomes quite ordinary even though one knows that it has so much to offer and so much of interest. Of course I had to show them the delights of croquet this morning and the ladies of the Club in particular delighted in taking them under their collective wings. At least when I am talking about croquet they now know what it is that I'm rambling on about it. I think they quite enjoyed it too.

So today I'm thankful that I have my son and his girlfriend visiting.
