Saturday 6 October 2012

Welcome to Saturday at the 2012 TIDA NZ Nationals!

Yesterdays cold, wet and windy weather has been replaced by.........Saturday.  An exact copy of yesterday, except more or the rain and wind.  But we are inside all day, so it doesn't matter, as long as the venue is waterproof and cyclone-proof :)

This is perfect weather for hot drinks and whitebait fritters, the latter being off the menu according to Mike Dilger in Christchurch, who reckons he ate all mine before they could be shipped up!
