A last hoorah

Today is the last day of my month-long holiday; it’s Wellington Anniversary Day – kind of like a bonus day for taking so many other days off.

This has been a great holiday where I’ve rested and achieved jobs – both at a snail’s pace and with little brain power involved most of the time. Here’s the highlights reel…
