A new experience.
We went to Taipa today to watch the Speedway with friends of ours, Norah and Mike. It was really good! Unfortunately the rain got pretty heavy so we left early, but the upshot was we went to have some fish and chips at Mangonoui, which was lovely.
We've never been to a speedway before, it's quite noisy and you get covered in mud! It's really well organised with a lot of safety measures in place. It's all very relaxed though and fun, which was just what we needed after a somewhat stressful time at work this week. Police, restraining orders, having to let staff go, doing 2 jobs, very gory extractions ( ew!) and pretending nothing was out of the ordinary in front of the patients... woah! Was very glad when Friday night rolled round and it was all over and we had lovely friends up from Auckland! Life is never dull in the far north!
