At church on Sunday we stood for a moment’s silence in respect for dead xPM David Lange (Mi alasharia la shantih, shantih, shantih). This was before news of his death was widely disseminated so members of the congregation were surprised to hear of it.

First essay of the semester is now out of the way. Very pleased to post about 1100 words away. It took longer than it should have done (oooh, shiney!) Ah, the joys of a tolerant employer!

After all this I can now set my mind to an overnight visit from my Wellingtonian brother on Friday night.
