Spring comes upon us gradually with its buds, blooms, welcome warmer temperatures and longer daylight hours.
Socially though, the season is doing a Usain Bolt. The spring event rush is out of the blocks and away. What with three home ITM Cup rugby games, ongoing art and cultural exhibitions, a ukulele festival and a solo theatre performance festival, an interschool regional dance competition and the Palmerston North Dance Association competitions, two touring ballet companies, the NZSO and other visiting musicians and bands, as well as stage shows, September’s calendar is looking crowded.
And that’s on top of any temptation to make more of outdoor activities.
It’s also Father’s Day this Sunday – an opportunity to shower dads with the traditional hankies, socks and undies – or perhaps, seeing as how us blokes are notoriously lackadaisical over health matters, gift-wrap an appointment for dad to have a medical check-up. Happy spring.
