All The Family Huddled Around A Glowing Laptop

The times when the kids were growing up it was a tradition to have the laptop on and the Northern Hemisphere family watch as the presents are open. A lot has changed since this photo in 2017, the kids are young adults, my Dad is in a home, the Swedish side aren't allowed to travel to Wales due to COVID, and I won't be around the kids this Christmas Day. It's not so much the change, the kids were always gonna move on and with the divorce new rituals have been created. It's more that it's happened in 3 years, 2017 seems both a long long way away (as does January, remember then?), and yet close enough to touch. Whatever your routines are be prepared to change them, but keep the rituals . 

Wellington buses - what the fuck is going on!?!?

[Updated] Check out the Scoop article, Stagecoach Wellington must improve:
Greater Wellington councillors have warned bus operator Stagecoach Wellington that it was failing its customers and that its poor service during the last two weeks would no longer be tolerated.

#31 Express to Miramar - not enough, not following the timetable and therefore full!

Wellingtonista noizyboy has the wonderful Bus angst posting which includes an excellent 'bus related' story from Kane Ross within the comments.
