hey there


on November 18, 2006

It’s been a while since the last update and a number of things have happened.

About three weeks ago I had another kickoff in Sydney.  Sounds exciting but y’all know what business travel is like – exotic until you have to do it on a regular basis.  The one redeeming feature this time was that the sessions were held overlooking beautiful Manly Beach so at least the view was nice smile From Sydney I flew to Auckland to spend a couple of days meeting our new country General Manager.  Not the most exciting way to spend the week…

Exactly a week after getting back from that trip Vic and I were heading off to Sydney again to see U2.  The concert was great and the seats we had were pretty good.  U2 really do know how to put on a show although the choice of Kanye West as supporting act was odd to say the least. The shot below was taken from where we sat – it was taken with a cellphone with a very wide lens so the stage looked a lot closer than the shot suggests.


Besides the tickets we got flown over there, put up at the Sheraton, given a five course meal during the concert and had a constantly stocked fridge in the corporate box.  All up very nice smile

While we were away the boys were looked after by almost everyone we know smile Vic’s Mum looked after them at night and stayed at our place.  Friday afternoon my Dad came around to watch them, Saturday Max went out with our friends Ian and Ngahuia and on Sunday both the boys spent the day with my Mum – phew!  Thanks to all those that helped out over that weekend, Vic and I appreciate it.

In other news I have completed two tests after my vasectomy and I failed/passed them both (depending on how you look at it) I am now officially shooting blanks wink

I’m sure there is a whole lot of other stuff and no doubt it will come to me at three in the morning.
