It's a Friday here in NZ, and we're going to be having fun today. For the last two weeks we've been having morning teas provided by the various 'national' teams of teachers in celebration of the RWC® and we've been having a bit of fun as well as putting on a lot of weight. But today has been designated All Black Day, so we're all bringing in a plate of food just to celebrate.

It's a lovely day.
I also spotted this delightful image when I was searching for "Song in my heart".
It certainly makes me feel a bit better.
I miss Fflur's little biting comments about my slight character flaw (according to her) of my delight in the female form.
