‘It’s always raining in the UK!’ people say to us. Mmm… Auckland is definitely in competition! We’ve had over 50mm of rain – and that was just today! In these first 10 days of February we’ve had more rain than London gets all winter!
If you ‘dob in’ or ‘dob on’ someone you are reporting them to the authorities for some illegal or dubious act.
Yesterday we went for a walk along the peninsula in the late afternoon and saw an amazing number of colourful parrots and other birds flying in and out of the trees lining the beach. I think we caught them on their feeding frenzy before sunset – and all the squawking that went with it! It was quite a spectacle. The photos I posted (‘Local Birdlife Gold Coast’) were all taken as we walked.
