So Thursday Chilling out at the house as the weather was something else. Very heavy rain then sunshine then rain and it was tropical rain that would sock you in seconds. I popped to the shops in the afternoon and the rivers were flowing very fast and high. It turned out watching the 6pm news that 4 miles down the road they had had a hurricane! Yep a hurricane in Auckland 4 miles down the road, mental!

Friday, involved a visit to my granddads late brothers wife. She was a very interesting person to talk to and it was lovely to see a picture of my granddad, brother and father. Later that afternoon I headed on the buses for 2hr back up to Waiwera. Here I met Lois in the local pub and had dinner with a couple of beers.
