Normal service is expected to resume after today.
Things seem back to normal, though I didn’t have the energy to leave the house yesterday. As a consequence the images on offer are still poor thin things made somewhat half-heartedly. The first was from my bedroom window looking down to the Hutt Recreation Ground which was, unusually, hosting a significant football game (the round-ball variety) between Wellington Phoenix and Melbourne City. Because of commitments to the Cricket World Cup, the Wellington Westpac Stadium was unavailable yesterday and for the next several weeks, so temporary stands and lighting have been installed. Apparently 9,232 patrons attended. I wouldn’t have been one of them even if I had felt well, but I was desperate for a shot.I wonder if they counted the guy in the fluoro jacket in the cab of the hydraulic crane who had to keep the floodlights in the air throughout the game. He got a great view.
On a different track, in fact on several different tracks, Mary has brought home some discarded nests. I suspect these have been predated by rats or other pests, as the shell of the eggs were pierced but not enough to suggest that a successful hatching occurred.
Self-pity should now cease and normal service should resume.
