Are you doing anything exciting for Labour weekend? We're not, just staying home.

 

Tell us if you're off on a three day adventure.

Wife's Birthday on the 24th, so constructing a cake.  Might be a 3 day adventure if I try and do it after too many beers.  :)

As well as when you're going and when you'll be back, don't forget to leave you address, the location of hidden spare house keys, and the alarm code (voice code for the monitoring company would be nice also, just in case the alarm gives any grief).

 

Cheers and thanks
Your friends,
Twittbook Tom and Facer Frank

I never lock the house or even shut the front door. I trust all my neighbours. Don't you? tongue-out

Might be glad to get back to work on Tuesday if you try and do it after *too* many beers. ;)

It's Himself's 60th birthday and our Wedding Anniversary this weekend, so of course Himself is off to Christchurch with "the lads" for a rugby trip.

 

I'm staying home.

BBQ and drinks at a mate's place Saturday night, to watch the All Blacks make history.

 

Sunday/Monday will be at the parent's beach house doing their network cabinet (Punching down patch panel etc). :)

I'm off to Rarotonga and Sydney tomorrow morning. Back on Sunday night. Sounds glamorous but not really. It could be classed as an adventure...




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

not leaving the house , the result of living in a tourist town ,Rotorua, on a long weekend . Tourists not having a clue where they are going on the roads and not having shops where they came from.





Common sense is not as common as you think.
