In other news this photo has been shortlisted for the Farmers Weekly Photography competition!
This is a nice surprise as I didn't really think about it much when I entered it. The prize is cash (always much appreciated) and also it being featured in the magazine.
I have just had a few days off and I had planned to go fishing but the weather has taken a turn for the worst, and I am a fair weather fisherman. So instead I went to Dunedin to do my Christmas shopping. Being male I had everything sorted in about an hour. I am not much of a shopper, so I planned it out properly. Wrote a list, googled where the appropriate shops were and devised an order of purchasing so I bought the heaviest stuff last. It took me longer to drive to Dunedin than the time I actually spent in the city.
The NZ overseas postal service is pretty efficient, easy to use and a reasonable price. You buy a prepaid box, which come in various sizes, fill it and pay accordingly for the weight. That doesn't mean however, that all my loyal readers will be receiving Christmas presents!
Righto, I am eating into my allotted hour for breakfast now, so I better start eating into my actual breakfast.
