Ann & Peter
in New Zealand
When we come home from work we try to play tennis with the girls. Maxie always joins in and runs after the ball until she collapses. Jaz has a new trick, she sneaks up on Maxie and runs off with the ball. She usually runs after a couple of balls before deciding she's had enough and watches from the sidelines.
The fourth IT Partners after work tasting was put on by Andrew (with a little help from Maree and Ainsley). This time we went up market with 11 bottles of Champagne to taste ranging from $20 to $300+!
Peter doesn't really like champagne but Ann made up for it. A really good evening.
After our busy weekend with Champagne and Lear, we decided not to go on a Bonsai Club dig in the redwood forest at Rotorua. Whilst we missed out on some magnificent trees, we also missed out on the two hour visit to A&E when one of the trees decided to fight back whilst Jeff was digging it up - eight stitches in the hand!!!
Maxie is STILL practicing to be an escapologist when she grows up! She found another hole in the fence into next door's garden so Peter came home early one day after work and patched it. A few days later she escaped again - this time we caught her jumping the fence. Now we're watching her when she goes out at night because Ann refuses to make the fence any higher as the garden would start to resemble Wandsworth or Winson Green prisons!
News from home
Clive sent us some pictures of our old friends at the 49th Rifle and Pistol club trip to Bisley. Looks like they had a nice day.

Good luck to Kieran - he's just joined the RAF.
