Picked up James from the airport yesterday. He had a great time. He came 3rd in the semi's so unfortunately didn't make the finals but he did so well to get that far. He's so lucky to get around to these different places to surf. He'd never been to the South Island before and esp to Dunedin which is renowned for good big surf.
Someone was asking about surfing in the cold water - he has a winter wetsuit and also booties so no worries there.
They had an awesome uniform (which they keep) - sponsored by Globe - hat, t-shirt, jacket, black denim pants, shoes and socks. Here's a pic of him in it - cool jacket; it's reversible. I'm so glad he made the Auckland Scholastics team this year as this is his last year at school so won't qualify for it after this year. He has been in the Auckland team for the last 4 years so he's had a good run.
Guess what!! After spending the day with Yolande and Sharon in Hamilton the other day and seeing Sharons cool Epson Picturemate printer I had to get one. So I got it yesterday. Yolande has bought one too. Sooo cool to print photos straight away and great quality too. I couldn't believe it when I first saw Sharon's - Yolande and I just looked at each other and we both knew we had to have one. Funny. Now I just need a new sewing machine.
Off to pick up Emma today who's been away for a week at our friends place on the North Shore. So we'll be a full family house again.
It's pouring with rain here at the mo - hope the Anzac parades don't get ruined.
