However my man had come up with a related idea: we came as Brian and Hannah Tamaki. Those 2 are the self-proclaimed leaders of a church here in NZ, they get an income in the 6 figures, derived from the tithing of their followers, some of whom are the poorest and most under-privileged people in this country. Brian calls himself a bishop and she a pastor. She has been in the news lately with trying to worm herself into the leading role of the Maori Women's Welfare League, by rigging the votes in her favour.
As the "Wife of Brian", it took a lot of bronzing powder, and with big gold earrings and a plastic pink tiki around my neck , it got pretty tacky.

There were some big Monty Python fans in the crowd, who (disturbingly) knew a lot of the script. But we all sang along with the end song "always look on the bright side of life!"
|Happy Birthday M!|

|My first little cheese.|

It's very exciting!
The colours make them look like lollies!
I even re-use some of the cut off bits of zips, you can roll them up and sew them into a little flower.
|Time to eat!|
Oh I hope we will do this lots of times in the coming summery weather.
