Car update

I love the car so much. It is lovely and clever and one of the better things in our possession. Seat warmers - genius, beep beep - genius, tan fuzzy ceiling - genius, little gizmo that tells you how much fuel you're using - potentially enough to make you go crazy with thrift. Bless Japanese imports for giving povos like us the opportunity to own a nice wagon.

I drove down to the children's bookshop for Spot's birthday party in the car. Normally I would walk the whole 5 blocks.

The party was nice. Spot was big and cute and Finn hugged him (aw, where's the camera?). There was story reading and lollipops. All very convivial (if you're 2 anyway).

Lucky you - we're still driving the dirty old skoda (it is by no means any longer a brand new car - I hope they weren't planning to sell it).

goodness knows where the part to fix our car is coming from, it's been weeks.

A skoda called Egbert?

Ooooooooooooh, you were there ... So were we (Jack & I). In fact we were first in (mis-timed the bus by 30mins, oops).
Jack did NOT like Spot and was very scared - poor sod. He was terribly brave though and had to wait to see Spot go as he watched from the cafe over the road.

Will post up the few piccies I took in the next day.

we were in Petone, so a different gig I imagine. There were only about 12 people at our little party, so I would probably have recognised you (and blushed and freaked out about what is the correct blog etiquette when meeting someone you know, but don't).

I hear there is a big fair over in Newtown this weekend with BJ Bear, Nigel Kennedy the Magician and others. Ms R is a big fan of Nigel but a bit suspicious of BJ; as a parent you gotta be a bit worried buy big hairy fellas called BJ.

oops, by.

Ha ha ha - I think we're only allow to write on a piece of paper our greetings until a non-Blogger actually introduces us.
I think the smaller do would've suited the wee fella a lot more. There would've been around 50 kids and probably as many if not more servants (parents, caregivers etc).

Maybe we'll meet at a Wiggles gig or some such ... ;-)

I'll be holding a red rose - and 2 wriggling boys.
