Like a lot of streets in Christchurch our usual route home is now closed for waste water repairs, so we have to take a convoluted detour including a very narrow, windy street with several sharp, blind corners.

My wee jazz (and me) aren’t so keen on ‘nose to nose’ encounters with huge SUV’s whizzing around the corners.

Only 16 more days til our road is open – until then I hope some of the drivers become a little more patient and considerate!!
