If I have to leave

Then this is the way to do it. I've had a fabulous day doing things I thought I wouldn't get a chance to do like getting a good look at the Dandelion Fountain and now I'm sitting in the sun at the airport eating a peach. I slept really well, rolled out of bed and had a very interesting talk with Grant about Eurekster and the technology behind it. Elise made a lovely lunch and I headed out into town. I ran for the bus and missed it - but while I was sitting at the stop waiting a driver who'd seen me running and saw the bus didn't stop came back to give me a lift! I did my last minute present shopping - and found the whisky shop :-) As well as buying Seth a thank you bottle I got to taste one of the whiskies I didn't buy and a 21 year old St Magdalen - and then a taste of Seth's whisky too, so I heartily and throatily recommend Whisky Galore on Columbo near Armagh Terrace. I managed to get everything in my suitcase too! And I've achieved one of those silly little ambitions tha!
t are *so* satisfying - I saw my suitcases on the luggage truck waiting to go on the plane!

Next stop Auckland...
