Junior journos - Maggie's daughter Billie, Lauren's daughter Zoe and a little fella you might recognise - spawn of the Massey journo class of 2004
I have had a rather ambivalent relationship with Auckland all my life, but on this last visit, the difference between Auckland and Wellington became rather apparent. Maybe it was just that we had good weather up north, but the place was adorned with blossoms, magnolia trees in full bloom, lemon trees dripping with fruit, and Cornwall Park was chocka with lambs gambolling and posing for tourists. The night air didn't freeze my considerable nose off and I didn't even wear my coat once. It seemed like paradise. In fact one afternoon it was so warm I took off Harper's shoes and socks, and one morning we lay under the grapefruit tree in the dappled light.
Don't we look like the cover of a Woman's Weekly?
