Nick visited overnight, having travelled down the South Island. He had been on an inspection of the Benmore substation. He took me down to Gore for Synod, thus saving me getting up before seven to catch the bus. He dropped me off at S. Andrew’s (no relation) just before the beginning of the morning’s meeting, and continued on his way to visit our mother in Invercargill for her seventy-somethingth birthday. 700 words of a revised essay done, still at least 300 words to go at least. The stress is not doing me much good. Very tiring day.
