For years, whenever I drove past the Mt Albert Croquet Club, I would idly think about joining. There's something about croquet that has always appealed to me. Possibly because I associate it with Alice in Wonderland. And the fantastically bitchy 80s teen film Heathers. With summer coming, I've been daydreaming about croquet again. I'm thinking I'll pick up a second hand set and invite friends over for games, interrupted with luncheons of cucumber sandwiches and iced tea.
Incidentally, that review of Heathers is from blog Beauty Dart's excellent series, Beauty in the Movies. It's well worth looking through the archives.
