Road rage with a water pistol

I’m going to let Joe Bennett do some of the talking today.  I found this little column very amusing. I must admit to reading it before I saw who wrote it – I’m not normally a fan.

and it’s raining again in Hawke’s Bay – hurray! We’re up to about 40mm in the past week now which should stave off the threatening drought until at least the New Year. By that time I’ll be packing my bags for the biennial trip to see the fandamily in the South Island.

In the meantime, I’m getting lazy as Christmas draws near. With most of my Christmas shopping done, I just want to stay home and pretend to ignore my looming deadlines. And I especially want it to keep raining this afternoon so I don’t have to take tennis coaching.  Before you ask, no, I’m not that good a tennis player. But I am one of the two parents who volunteered to help while their children were at tennis. Stupid girl!  I can handle the ones who are the same age as my kids (they’re too scared to talk back – my kids have obviously already told them I don”t put up with any crap).

It’s the testosterone-laden teens who are way ready for high school that are beyond me.

I’m giving Lachlan away when he turns 13.
