Aikido!
I have located my dogi, washed and -ironed- my hakama and contacted a local dojo. I go to my first Aikido class in approximately two years tonight at 7pm. I am going to be so sore tomorrow :).

In other events, I have found I can cope with about 4.5 hours of this formal training per day. I'm getting about 6. My brain is full by afternoon tea time, and I'm going home mentally exhausted. Seems that the lunch ain't free. Still, being competent at this programming lark is doing good things for my ego I mean self esteem.

The Volvo Ocean Race leaders are due in around lunchtime. They were supposed to arrive last night. There is a view of half the harbour from this building (another building is in the way). We might get to see them coming in.


ETA : Just saw the first two Volvo boats come in! So fast, and neck and neck!

Thanks for the lead.
I'm looking for an Aikido icon now. I may scan one of my photos.

Hello! :D

I wonder if you're in the same akido class with my friend Kim :) There be a Simon and a Wendy in that class as well, yar.

(Sorry about the pirate speak. I too saw the Volvo yachts come in and was thrilled when the Pirates boat set off a wee cannon as it came into port!
