I haven't posted for a few days - things have been getting in the way but 2 reports today - rugby first of course. Very exciting weekend - all the Kiwi teams except the Auckland Blues won their games this weekend and all the Australian teams lost except for - wait for it - the Western Force. At last they have a win on their books. My beloved Hurricanes won but they were quite determined to give it to Queesnland - gave them passes and even a good kicked ball. Never mind, they won. Here is a pic of Tana Umaga getting away from Ben Tune. My sympathy to those ACT Brumbie supporters but the Highlanders did play superbly. You can blame our friend Jonathan who thought he would counter Ian and me by wearing his Wallaby jersey. I know from experience that when I wear my greenstone earrings the All Blacks always lose so I gave that away after the last World Rugby series. Last game of the round robin next weekend.
On Saturday morning I went to a WAFTA open day at Jennie Abbott's lovely home up in the bush north of Perth - it was really nice to catch up with people. While I was driving up and back I decided to make changes to my downunder postcards so back to square one - textiley report later on. Right now we are off to Tarts for a decent cup of coffee since we are out of any here. Not a sign of the electricians on Friday as promised but ever hopeful for tomorrow morning. So close but yet so far. I have been cleaning out some of my junk so there is sometime positive happening.
