The day started with a haircut and then I collected my wedding dress from the shop where it had been pressed. Judy, who lives opposite us, kindly took the dress so Noel didn’t see it.

Very busy day prior to Laura and Ian & Marianne arriving tomorrow. Bought lots of meat, bread and drink for the brunch BBQ we will be hosting on Monday.

Heard from David that he and Stu completed the Tongariro Crossing. A very good effort from David!
