It doesn't look as if we'll be going anywhere away from Christchurch between now and returning to work on Monday 23rd; without meaning to, we have just nicely spaced various important dates, to make it hard to find 3 or 4 days with no commitments. Oh well, we're doing what people on holiday do - lying around reading, interspersed with occasional bursts of activity. And there's always Matinee Idle on the wireless.
Next week is gates - steel ones from the driveway at River Rd, which will run from the corner of the house to the west side fence. This means concrete and welding, all masterminded by Dave From The Pub. I'm sure it will turn out well. First is a visit from a man from Connectrix who will tell us where the underground power cable comes from the street. He'll wave around some kind of field meter and take a cheque for $100 back to the office. It's essential, though, as the power meter box and main feed are on the wall right beside one end of the gates.
UPDATE: weather permitting, we're going to have a night at Okains Bay Camping Ground, just to have a night away. Some time in the next few days I hope, maybe in the weekend.
