The Land of the Long White Cloud

Those of you who know New Zealand will recognise Rangitoto, the volcanic island that was formed some 500 years ago, which is visible from almost everywhere on the North Shore of Auckland.

Five years ago I managed the two hour walk to the summit - with a few little stops on the way! In a few days our family are returning to the Land of the Long White Cloud to our old base in Takapuna before exploring further afield in the South Island.

We will be away for just over a month and I don't intend to keep in touch with the news in the UK unless I stumble across it. I just hope that when I get back the political landscape shows an even more strong upsurge in the fortunes of the Conservatives and that Brown's Bunglers have been relegated permanently to the status of the corrupt, inept and incompetent charade of a Government that it is.

In the meantime may I wish my reader (sic) a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.
