Tomorrow we head away with a group of guys from Boys’ Brigade up to the centre of the North Island to encourage them to throw themselves the snow graced slopes of Mt Ruapehu.
Vicky and I are heading up in a support role, and will have many hours to spend together. It’ll be the first time away since our marriage. Sunday will be our 2 month anniversary. It feels like only yesterday though. Whilst we are up there, we are hoping to put together (or at least get started on) our photo album of the occasion to show friends and family when they’re over.
Though it would be awesome to be able to take the Mini, we have decided not to. Purely because we took it for a joy ride last night, and although it passed in flying colours, my spine is now more or less a crumbling mess. One day (after my spine has been strengthened with hardened titanium) I will take the Mini on a North Island road trip. One day.
