It’s Friday and even better, it’s Friday evening here in New Zealand. The working week is over, and there is a moment to blog and to think about where the past few days have gone. It is time to think about and reflect on what has happened. So, here are 6 things from last week. Nothing too exciting…perhaps even a little boring?
1 Saw a film. As I mentioned in my last post, on Monday I went to see ‘A Ballerina’s Tale’, the film about American dancer, Misty Copeland. It was quite interesting, just a bit irritating (why did we have to watch 10 minutes of her having chiropractor treatment?) but about 400 people turned up to see it, so hopefully a good amount of money was raised for the New Zealand School of Dance to go towards next year’s 60th anniversary programme.
2 Went to Auckland…

4 …and came home from Auckland
Sunshine all the way home
5 Bought a beautful, soft cashmere mix sweater from Trenery – it is so snuggly and looks good too. Check it out on their website.
6 Watched the news – have no idea what to say about what is happening in the mess that is British politics. Boris Johnson as foreign minister? I feel there is a parallel universe somewhere where all this is a joke. Then there is today’s terrible news from Nice and the death of 84 (as I write) people. And yet, another part of the world has become obsessed with Pokemon Go, and a cyclist in the Tour de France had to run as he lost his bicycle in a crash. Such is the world this Friday evening.
