Two more sleeps then we're on a 7.15am flight on Tuesday morning Rarotonga time, arriving in Auckland about 11am Wednesday thanks to date line magic. We'll be back in Christchurch about 2pm, ready to dash round to Alpine View Lane and check the painting job.
Irony of ironies - EQC want to inspect Alpine View Lane, now that we've had the painting done! So much for their bland assurance that it could be 2 or 3 years. Now we'll probably have a fight about who pays the painters. At least the payment for our damaged household stuff has arrived, according to Alice.
My leg and ankle are slowly healing, but I'm spending a lot of each day on the sofa with the leg elevated, in a compression bandage - quite hot in this climate.
