Oh happy Friday. The whole office seems lighter and more frivolous on Friday. A burden has been lifted. Another sunny summery day and the city is sparkling.
For the second time this week I escaped to the top end of town, this time for a late lunch at the Cricketers. Still grieving for the unfortunate withdrawal of Daniel Vettori from the New Zealand team, I didn't pay much attention to the cricket on the TV, but enjoyed my Little Creatures with chips and aioli. In the immortal words of Toby Keith 'I love this bar'. The staff here are really lovely and I was delighted to see the same barman who was so friendly to us on our previous visit last week.
Back on home territory the cicadas are going crazy, there are birds everywhere and once darkness falls the moths and tiny beetles begin their invasion. The giant lemon scented gum is starting to shed its bark and great strips of it lie across the footpath and driveway. Sumer is *definitely* icumin in.
