    Something I instantly recognized in Te Papa. The house in the middle of the shot, with the pyramid roof, is where I grew up. This shot would appear to be taken from the Post Office at Three Lamps (now a Belgian Beer Bar), and shows St Mary's Bay back when it was a bay, rather than a motorway.

    The same house many decades later, with my father standing on the roof, proud owner of a do-up. When Mum went to buy a second hand washing machine from some lady in Remmers for $10, she was asked where she was taking it to. When Mum said "St Mary's Bay", the woman looked at her kindly and said "Oh, in that case, dear, you can have it for $5". You probably wouldn't get that reaction nowadays.

    This morning, I found this blu-tacked to the door to the children's playroom like Luther's Theses against the Indulgences, my eldest son's solution to the problem of too many toys cluttering it. I'm still somewhat baffled by the diagram.

    Looks like a map to me.

  • BenWilson,

    It is a map, but when asked to explain it, he refused, saying it's for Zane only. I don't have high enough clearance.

    No doubt it's been done before, but this is my self-portrait in baubles.

    Nora, that middle one, 'Left lane exit only', is beautifully desolate.

    Thanks Chris, you wouldn't know that there was loads of Sunday traffic whistling past between me and Rangitoto.
