On Saturday we went to Birkenhead School Fair in the morning where Christopher won a huge soft toy, lioness which we had to deliver home before going to the movies to see Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire. I enjoyed the movie and thought it represented the book fairly well even though it missed out a lot of subplots. We nearly missed the movie because our bus just didn't come and we had to wait for the next one. Luckily there were so many adverts at the start, that we didn't even miss the trailers let alone any of the actual movie. We went to McDonalds for tea afterwards before heading home. Meanwhile Matthew had been to the same movie with some friends from school over in Liverpool because the afternoon shows in Birkenhead were all full.
I played in music group on Sunday morning at church, and there was a guest speaker from CPAS, he was quite a good preacher but rather predictably preached about our call to mission. We had a nice lunch at Mum's after negotiating the unhelpful rail replacement buses on the way home from church. Buses caused us more problems on the way to church when the rail replacement buses changed route and we ended up catching a service bus which took us to Bebington Station and had to walk from there, about 15 minutes walk. We were late but we only missed some of the first song, and it was a lovely service so I was pleased we had made the effort, the choice of songs was particularly good, and the worship was very quiet and contemplative which I enjoyed.
Today I've been trying, rather unsuccessfully, to catch up on all the housework. I did quite well before we went round to Angela's for coffee. We had lovely chat with Angela over several cups of coffee and then came home for lunch! After lunch I hung out some washing, and we threw out some rubbish. Afterwards we went out to the bank and to buy some light bulbs. While we were out a thick fog came down, which made the journey more interesting and all my washing much wetter! Still at least the buses were on time today!

Talking about Birkenhead sounds like you're in Auckland!

Buses seem more annoying there than here, or maybe it's because you have to catch so many of them to get around at the moment. They dominate your movements! I rarely get to catch a bus for any reason at the moment - maybe on the 30th when I get the car serviced in town.

Fog! Ooh, I like fog. Even if it's kind of wet. I like the idea that things can happen in the fog!

Buses probably are more annoying here, but that's mainly because there are a lot more of them and as you say we are using them far more often. I generally don't mind hanging around at bus stops for a while, but I don't like missing things or being late for things.

Fog is kind of interesting, but this fog was really cold, and not that pleasant to breathe, but it did an element of mystery to a familiar journey!

I hadn't thought about breathing the fog! It's never thick enough here.

Ah, Auckland's Birkenhead is named after our one.
Within easy reach we also have New Brighton (not in Christchurch) and Woodside (not just north of Upper Hutt)

At least you're dealing with familiar names! Our street is a mountain in Scotland, apparently.
