And then I thought, hang on a minute, I live at the foot of the Waitakere Ranges, with its 16,000 hectares of untainted bush. I have nothing to be jealous of.
So today the family and I went on a big beautiful bush walk - the Upper Nihotupu Dam Track. I don't know how long it's meant to take, but we were at it for a good four hours.
It was glorious.

I thank God for my beautiful country and my even more beautiful family.
