A few days with Patrick & co.

It felt good to be proactive, because without thinking about it I had quite quickly become expectant of Helen's companionship in my day-to-day, so it was especially exciting to be set loose in the city without her. Happily I found that I had developed a reasonable sense of direction and recognition of landmarks on the streets.

Tonight I have made arrangements to stay ...

A weekend in Auckland suburbia

... run up One Tree Hill.
