Been a busy ol’ week on the socialising front – a visit to the theatre to see the Royal Shakespeare perform The Seagull, a cocktail party for a book launch at the British High Commission and a break with kiwi tradition to go boozing after work on a Thursday. All in all a much more British experience.
It’s not been a good week for the kiwi – it’s nosedived again in value. The house prices are dropping and MT’s predictions about the NZ economy are looming large. Let’s hope that by the time the British visitors start arriving at the end of the year, their £ will be worth more than now.
Away from the socialising it’s been the usual stresses and strains of work. At least I have the prospect of going part time as the first time to domestic-executivedom. Yeh, now that’s something to get up in the morning for!
