27 January 1982


Layed about. Went swimming twice. 2nd time played ball with the students looking after the pool. Got chips and steak for tea. More chips and delicious pineapple fritters from the chip shop. Bed at 10.30

Trains = 13

Look, more chips! And pineapple. I loved pineapple, anything pineapple, so it was an added bonus to discover that the chip shop not only did burgers with pineapple in, but would also serve up deep fried slices of them.

The entry about trains needs some explaining. There was a railway line which ran about a street and a half away from our house. From various points in the garden you could see the trains – mostly goods trains – passing up and down the line from central Auckland. For something to do I began counting them, and the cumulative total appears throughout the early part of the diary.
