This weeks favorite things about Summer.

Summer is awesome!

Drinking Heineken in the paddling pool on Sunday was a great way to cool down. No splashing though. Strict rules on that – Alex. Note, THAT rule was nullified as soon as he left the pool, giving me a face full of water in the process.

The morning walk from the bus to school is great at the tail end of the Kingsland rush-hour. People are rushing to work, swearing at the traffic, while old men sit outside Roasted Addiction, reading the paper, espresso on table and the old faithful ‘bitzer’ at their feet.

Monday night Masala with the girls. Wine, great Indian cuisine, lots of talk and laughter and one special birthday girl, Aimee Simpson. Getting dressed up during Summer is so much more fun than during winter. Plus – heels have less chance of slipping on a dry pavement!

Tanning in the sun this afternoon with a good book. I have colour! Jonathan Kelllerman – this is one I don’t want to put down.

The rain. I can smell it hitting the hot concrete right now. It is bringing a nice cool to the end of the day.

On a totally different note. Christchurch. I have spent the afternoon watching you on TV3. You are in my thoughts. RIP to all who passed away in this quake.
