Yesterday was out BGO or Big Gay Out where we get to celebrate our diverse communities with our family and friends. I think about 10,000 people went to it so it was pretty busy. As well as that it was extremely hot! We had only planned to go for a couple of hours as we had friends coming over for dinner so I had to get back to finish off preparations for that, (even though I had done most of it beforehand). Therefore we didn't take all that much with us just money, sunscreen, some water and a blanket to sit on. We would normally take lots of food and things with us and sit under the shade so this year we were very very under-packed and unprepared for the heat. I had left my hat at home thinking it would be overcast but when we got there the sun was beating down leaving me no choice but to buy a hat from one of the stalls. Never mind it's a great hat!

Harry really seemed to enjoy it but was a little overcome with the heat. By the end of our time there he looked decidedly peaky so it was time to go home for a swim in our Warewhare pool so he could cool down. It's a pity we weren't able to stay for longer as there were some really good acts coming on including Anika Moa who I think is fantastic. But never mind at least we were coming home to have dinner with good food and great friends. So here are some photos from the day...
