Well it is almost 530 pm already, not a brilliant day in Dunedin again – weatherwise.   It started off this morning drizzly and windy, but settled in to an overcast day.  I don’t know where the heck the sun has gone to?  Looks like the bottom of the South Island is not going to get a summer, like last year?  Fingers crossed the weather pattern changes and we get some warm and sunny days.



I went for a good two hour walk with Tom my friend this morning at 8am.   We rugged up warm, then had to get rid of our coats after tackling a few hills.  The finish of the walk ended up going through the Dunedin Botanical Gardens, past the fragrant roses, then through the University back to our cars. It was lovely to walk through there amongst the Historic Stone Buildings.

Also there were hundreds of people getting their photos taken with their families and friends to celebrate their graduations, followed by a parade through the main street of town.

You could see the ‘proudness’ on the parents faces.  Such a lovely happy occasion with people really dressed up to the max.  🙂 As we walked past in a hurry with our sports shoes on, I spotted the highest pair of heels a young girl was wearing.  Wow, I wonder how she walks in them?  They looked impressive.  She had the perfect set of pins to go with them too.  It put a ‘smile on our diles’.

Tonight Colin and I are attending his Christmas Works Function/Party in town.  This is the 4th Saturday night out in a row, yawwwwwwn.  It has been a busy month.  

I dont’ know many of the people at his work, but I am sure they will be talkative.  We didn’t attend last year as Colin was still in Hospital.

The Restaurant assures me there will be Gluten Free food 🙂

Tomorrow IS GOING TO BE a lie-in in bed, at least until 9am. I haven’t had one for 6 or so weeks.  Maybe I will get up and make us breakfast and jump back in bed with it? Coffee and Gluten Free toast in bed sounds good 🙂
