Arose even later than usual, 11 or so, so hurriedly cleaned the block + then shot in to Paihia. Main reason was to collect re-prints of a couple of photos, but they didn’t have them ready – my envelope had been put in the wrong box. And to buy a Time… which hadn’t arrived. So, since I completely forgot to visit the travel agency to check up on our tickets, the visit was a total waste of time.
Back within an hour, a spot of lunch with Val, then an afternoon lazing by the pool – another brilliant afternoon. Work. At last the blue hordes arrived, but weren’t difficult to serve, so Marion’s precautions – not only Jo + myself but Wanda, Ian’s wife, as well, were a little severe. I was released at 10.45, with the bar still open – seemed silly to me, I reckon they might still have been busy – so Val + I had a respectably early night.
Even more of a non-day than usual, it seems.
