In the weedy light of the full moon I was cooking for the first time in what seems like ages on our barbeque tonight. It was supposed to be a full and lusty moon – the harvest moon – but the wind has blown clouds in after what was a beautify day. Shame really – we spent most of it experiencing some of the lethagic and lurgus retail opportunities Wellington seems to have assumed. Retailers, please, I know it’s summer outside, but if you don’t want to do business, please just stay home. Simply don’t open your shop. If you don’t have a smiling face to get into retail. Instead, do as we did – kebabs and a beer. Simple, rustic, good.
