Auckland City celebrated its 175th birthday last weekend with beautiful hot weather and a three day party down on the waterfront. Oh yes, we had a public holiday on Monday too! My personal celebration was to take the ferry across to Rangitoto Island with a friend.
Elementary is back on our TV screens and although I'm not totally comfortable with a female Doctor Watson I am hooked on the series and while watching last night made a start on the front panel for my casket.
And my treat for yesterday was a trip to the movies - part of my Christmas gift was a voucher. I went to see The Imitation Game and now I want to read the book:-). The trailers at these movie sessions are tempting aren't they? Well to me they are, unless I have already read the story, so yesterday I was not tempted by Still Alice (read that one), nor by The Theory of Everything (read that one too) and neither Selma nor Wild seems like my kind of movie. So I will be keeping my remaining vouchers until the next James Bond (roll on November) and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (only have to wait till March for this one).
