{And Pause}

It’s been a busy old time recently, which may account for me being a little quieter on here. Trying to be involved in as much as possible and create a whole life in as short a space a time as possible apparently means you end up running on empty – who knew?! There are also... Continue Reading →

Trust The Joy (Just Hold Your Breath)

Hello! Ever wondered what you’d do if you decided to upend your whole life and move to the opposite side of the world? The why doesn’t really matter, you can think up something really dark and dramatic if you like. But just imagine you’ve done it, you’re there, you look around you...now what the hell...

Just Say No, Kids!

Been having a lovely time getting to know my way around my new town. I've been to a food truck/ live music by the beach loveliness and I've been invited to a BBQ tonight! Don't get too excited for me but I might actually make some friends! (Before the year is out anyway. Hopefully. Maybe.... Continue Reading →

Namaste Here And Nap

Hot yoga. Where arriving late means not only being right at the front, but also by the draughty side door. The instructor was launching himself into new positions every few seconds whereas I was just bone tired. Like ok I'm unfit but surely not this bloody unfit to the point where each new pose is...

Pet Sitting International

Pet sitting update! What better way to get a feel for a totally new place before jumping into a rental agreement, than pet sitting! I start my first one here soon, and the absolutely delightful lady even picked me up and brought me to the house for lunch and to meet the pooches. One of... Continue Reading →

It’s a left, right? Right. Wait…

Less than a week in, and the feeling of overwhelm has receded to lapping waves rather than crashing tsunamis. After being welcomed into the country by two awesome friends in Auckland, I’ve been shown around my new town by two extremely kind and ridiculously helpful new friends. Oh, and made a canine best pal as... Continue Reading →

Handle With Care

Once you’ve let a child into your heart, they cradle it in their hands. Aw, that sounds sweet doesn’t it? Let’s break it down though. The hands of the little people in my life are proportionally tiny, often sticky, and lacking dexterity. The oldest one is nearly 7 and I still can’t pass anything to... Continue Reading →
