Anne here …
Yesterday we had a much needed trip to the laundrette! Yeh clean clothes again.
Just in time for me to be reasonably tidily dressed to visit colleagues in the Office of the clerk of the House of Representatives and in the Library of the New Zealand parliament. Thank you so much for a genuinely fascinating morning. I would have loved to stayed longer chatting about the similarities and differences in the ways that we work but it was a great introduction to New Zealand politics, the parliamentary buildings including the themed Committee rooms, the lovely Library, the Chamber and the government’s Beehive building.
