My Timetable...feel sorry for me?

Monday, February 27, 2006

Soccer superstar David Beckham, whose mental agility has been questioned before in the British media, has said his six-year-old son's maths homework leaves him baffled. The England captain and Real Madrid midfielder was forced to call on his wife Victoria, a former member of the Spice Girls pop group, to help their son Brooklyn with a school assignment because the footballer found the sums too difficult. "Their homework is so hard these days," Beckham, 30, said in an interview with the Mail on Sunday. "It's totally done differently to what I was teached (sic) when I was at school, and you know I was like 'Oh my God, I can't do this'."

The last wedding (for a while I think??!)

Following a Stag party that will be remembered for a long time (especially by Dave) it was time for the wedding.

This was held in Wellington, with expert planning I might add. I arrived in Wellington and then just cruised until the big day. It was pretty nice being driven around in a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow!!

All in all we came away with the result, and a slight hangover.

The Team

Shortly after the service the knives were out!

When we arrived to leave our mark on the bridal chamber, we caught Sugar and Spice in the act of making sweet...umm...something??

A nice window!

Lay Zee!!

Hey there, as you can see I have chucked a whole bunch of photos on the blog. Use the month link on the right to see the rest of the pics.

For those who don’t know I am now in Hamilton in NZ. I am attending university and we are living in Ulster Street. My number here is 07 839 0055.


Well done NZ a great sign board for the top of the north island....really informative!

Finally Updating the Blog

Well as you can see I havent updated this for a while. I will do a quick recap and then just dump a whole pile of pics on here...with a few captions.

Etsuko and I left Japan on 30 November after a great farewell from both the students and the other teachers. (And Anna who crashed my farewell party (But she is always welcome to do that!!))

We then arrived in NZ and I came down with the same massive cold that I had last time. I think it might be something that they put in to the Economy section to make us upgrade...

In NZ we did a whole bunch of stuff, including cathing up with family and friends and travelling to the very top of NZ (well as far as you can go by road). We have also been lucky enough to be involved in a friends wedding... basically I will let the pictures tell the story.......

Here's to updating this thing a bit more frequently!!
