Auckland ahoy

We're in Auckland. It is very lovely. I am very hungover. I was spoiled rotton by a very generous host, and enjoyed exceptional company. We ate scallops and drank lots of wine and a delicious ginger thing that cleverly disguised vodka as a refreshing health drink.

After a bit of a slow start today, and a fair whack of junk food, we found ourself some culture, and bought ourselves a longggggggg coveted Reuben Paterson print. It is so nice, and while we were at the gallery Reuben himself came in. I GUSHED. I love him. I was looking quite mental actually, respendent in pink jandals, Petone t shirt, no makeup whatsover (which is worse than it sounds when you're almost 34 and very hungover) and bright pink raincoat. I imagine Reuben may need some therapy after the Martha-onslaught.

And now I'm using someone else's bandwidth - naughty! We're right next to a police station too. I laugh in the face of the law.

You're stealing wireless too? I'm borrowing a Byron Bay cafe's bandwidth at this very moment. Just make sure it isn't the police network you're using... just in case they're logging everything.
