... for s sign pointing to s public dump station. Auckland does many things well, but providing public dump stations is not one of them. We ended up going about 5km past the airport to find one in Manukau. And we had to put a few more $ in the tank as the yellow warning light came on a bit early for my liking.

Maybe there is a correlation between the volume and how early the alarm goes off; almost whisper-like around 9 or 10 in the morning and eardrum-bursting around 3.00am this morning when we were jolted out of a deep sleep. Simon was stirred from his sleep, which was a little unusual as he is normally getting home around 3.00am at weekends and waking us ...
