The Deserted Wives Club met for the first time tonight...hopefully it will be the only time! Andreas was the only deserted husband left at home, as all our other hubbies are away. Nick and John left early on Monday morning to drive a truck to the north island to deliver John and Joan's household goods to a storage facility (so with Nick being away, bible study was cancelled, hence our free night on Wednesday); Mark and Graham were off hunting with a group, and Rene with a different hunting group. The ladies gathered for a dinner and craft time at Liz's place. First order of craftiness was to try fix up Liz's boots which suffered the injustice of the potroast bag exploding all over them (and the floor, and the bench, and the cupboards), leaving great oily splotches all over them. Joan and Betta took up the task of rubbing cornflour into them which will hopefully absorb and break down the oils.
