57) Hedgehogs and Home

The fire is making it hard to write this, it’s crackling softly and lulling me into complete relaxation. Through half closed eyes I want to record this though, the next bit, the part that comes after the awful worry and the stress. This feeling. This seemed like such a far away, almost impossible, goal just…

37) “I’ll just grab the razor to finish it”

So yesterday I was feeling a bit stressed so I thought I would pamper myself a bit. First I’d go for a long relaxing massage then I would go and get a hair cut. However I was so relaxed and sleepy after my massage that I failed to react when the hairdresser uttered the words…

34) Mount Kayak

So we have recently made the decision to stay in New Zealand permanently and become actual grown ups at last! That means it’s time to make some changes. One of these changes is our apartment, I no longer view it as a temporary stop over, it’s now a more permanent home in my mind so…

18) Mini break!

Mini break Bridget Jones style, without a cheating Hugh Grant and comical bunny ears of course. So we dropped the guinea pig off at the babysitters and me and Gerry set off to Christchurch for the weekend. We’ve been together for over 2 years, lived in Darwin, Melbourne and Queenstown together and yet this was…

7) Worlds Wooliest Sheep Award

Thursday: So I’m sitting on the couch eating cookies for breakfast and wondering why I’m not getting any skinnier. Suddenly Britney’s Work Bitch song comes on the radio and gets me in the mood for some exercise so I step away from the double choc chip cookie/breakfast and throw on some workout clothes. Before I…
