My Lil’est Cousin is a Mrs!

Bethanie, my youngest cousin, got married today. (You may recall a post from last week that preceded the most amazing performance of “Faith” by George Michael that the world has ever seen on Bethanie’s Hen’s Night. Freddie Mercury and Amy Winehouse wept in heaven at the beauty of Pigalina’s voice).

The Pigalina family moved to NZ from England 19 years ago and Bethanie’s family joined a few years later. It is incredibly special to be able to share these family events with them without hopping on a plane for 24 hours at a time. Today we had a lovely celebration in the herb garden at the Dunedin Botanical Garden.

Clock Blocker

I saw these two gems of clocks today at a shop in Dunedin. Anyone would surely be proud for them to grace their lounge wall.
My favourite is the one on the left, it poses so many questions.
Why is there a foot wearing underpants and a bowtie?
Who decided to draw this and propose it as a clock idea?
Who agreed to print it as a clock?
Who ever thought that, yes, this will sell lots, let’s manufacture many of these clocks?
Why did the shop owner buy ANY of them to on-sell?
Baffling.
