Although it was a long weekend here, TOF had to work on Saturday and Sunday, so I got out and about all by myself!! Saturday saw me attending Jak's rugby game, and for someone that hasn't played the game for a couple of years, he was pretty darn good. Sorry, had my 'proud mother hat' on then. I took photos and then sent them to the lads (his mates that is) via their chat on face book, apparently they like it, so there you go.
Yep, that is mummies little half back clearing the ball from the scrum.
And that would be about it for technological rugby talk from me. When I got home Tex was fast asleep in the middle of the garage floor so I had to leave the car outside. No sense honking on the horn as he is as deaf as! He finally awoke in time to have his dinner, stretch, piddle and then come inside to get comfortable for the evening. What a life!!
No guessing required for where I went today!!
Dawn invited me out to hers for lunch, her man was out of town, mine was working so it was a no brainer really. Her lovely daughter arrived with her two children, so out came my camera. Miss Four loves having her photo taken while Master Eleven was totally convinced it wasn't all that necessary, but obliged.
The colours of the countryside were glorious today.
Toitoi clumps growing in the paddocks,
amongst grazing cows.
I could steel Miss Four!
One day hopefully
I will get to be a granny!!

with the vacuuming!
Lunch was DIVINE.
Driving home, for some reason I decided to go to the lake, that would be Lake Rotoroa, the one in the middle of the city. It is filling up with ducks and other water fowl as they know like the hunters that Duck Shooting Season is about to start.
And those birds are all laughing!!
The baby Pukeko on the right was so cute, all gangly legs and fluff.
Proud mum is on the left.
Big building on the left is Waikato Hospital. On the right is a huge white house that I think may be finally finished being built. You have to have some serious coin in your bank to live on the edge or have a fine view of the lake. The best part is there is a walkway the entire way around the lake so you can walk or bike if you fell the urge.
A lake full of happy birds indeed!!
Us Hamiltonians are lucky to have a Lake and a River,
Beautiful Parks and Gardens.
So many people were out today making the most
of the lovely weather
and walkway around the lake.
Darling Jak bought his olds dinner tonight, Wendys takeaways that cost over $50!! How do the young ones afford to live of takeaways is beyond me.
But thanks Jak, you are a keeper!!
