Aonghas played in his first U18 Waikato game today at the Tri-series in Rotorua. I didn’t get a good photo though. I went for a run and a swim between games – bit chilly but Lake Tikitapu is stunning so had to share this one!
The sun came out today and I decided to escape the house and go and work in the cafe down the road. I miss the magnolia trees at Dio – I used to walk past them everyday on the way to my classroom and watch as the buds grew and then burst into flower and then fade and fall. The ones on the way down to the river are pretty stunning though. I came across a couple of cats too – black cats crossing your path are good luck and this wee fella looks a bit battered but happy soaking up the sun. The one in the basket is Tonks – her new bed in Aonghas’ bedroom!
For some reason this post remained as a draft way back on day 75! Just found it so have published but way out of synch!
Autumn is definitely in the air but summer is still hanging in there. I quite like the comfort of autumnal evening darkness yet still wrapped in the warm air of lingering summer. Anyway, the onset of Autumn means the start of the hockey season and a return to walking round the lake.
While waiting for Gus to finish training I decided to try out a Surround Shot. Uploaded to Street View for all to see. The image is below but go to the link to see it in 360 surround view, or even better, view through Google Cardboard to see in VR.

A hundred days of the year gone already! Time really does fly by… And it has taken me this long to finally use my amazing Christmas present – an all singing, all dancing sewing machine! I love it. Made a cushion cover to practise all the different stitches it does. I have some way to go but very proud of my first bit of handiwork.
