A cheap Saturday night

May 18, 2009

We went to a so-called “soiree” at a friend’s house on Saturday night. There were more than a dozen adults and a few children. The idea was that everyone would perform a small item, whether music, recitation, or what-have-you.

It turned out that we had some accomplished singers and musicians, and some whose enthusiasm compensated for their technical deficiency.

I am ashamed to say I was surprised how enjoyable this low-tech and humane gathering was. It was, in fact, entertaining.

But best of all as far as this blog is concerned, it was FREE.


School holiday bleg

September 22, 2008

So the hols are upon us. Bored young minds must be kept entertained. Preferably, of course, for free (or at least very little).

On the agenda thus far:

  • Weta Cave
  • Baking
  • South coast walking
  • Te Papa (again!)
  • Reading
  • Exploiting child labour in the garden
  • Ditto in domestic chores
  • Art/craft project

What have you got up your sleeve?
