Hobbies For The Apocalypse

Question; What’s the perfect new hobby for someone fully expecting the apocalypse, but with a solid core of optimism? Answer: Gardening. Of course. Bear with. Because the aforementioned optimistic apocalypse-expecter is me, and I have a rational* explanation. *There’s a possibility it’s rational in the way my Mum’s genes would dictate, rather than my Dad’s....

Peak Cheese

I can’t believe I’m typing this, but the day has come, and I just have to share it with you all. After extensive research, training, and pushing myself beyond the limits of what I thought was possible, it’s finally happened. The culmination of years of work. I have hit: peak cheese. Now, I enjoy cheese... Continue Reading →

Glad You Could Make It

'Glad you could make it,' is a phrase that has been said to me often and somewhat sarcastically throughout my life. I don't intend to be late. I do try to plan and be on time.  Between the friends who have learnt to time check me (lie to me) and the ones I send the... Continue Reading →

{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 →

Today I've been revelling in bare feet and black sand. Also realising I need to look where I'm... Continue Reading →

This Is Not A Drill! Or A Dream.

Alert! I am not on holiday! Yes, ok I haven’t worked in a month and I’ve been having a lovely old time, but I do start my new job tomorrow so it’s a timely reminder that I’m not on holiday here! This is good because it means: 1) I didn’t dream it, I actually did... 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 →
