Sitting here torn between feeling a mixture of “how the eck is it almost December ALREADY” and “hmm, and?”, gives me a slight bit of smirky calmness, in the sense that this time last year I was frazzled with a million and one issues playing on my mind. Yes I exaggerate, but yes, a million … More I am ‘all change’ more than a train platform announcer
Another weekend brought on another weekend out of the city that is home, Auckland. Skipping out of work after a last minute fire drill, car pre loaded, we drove straight on to the already stalled motorway, and set off on our five and a half hour drive south. Sure, that’s a lengthy time, but that … More Wonderful weekend wanders
A year ago, one of Bradley’s closest pals from his uni days, popped the question to his Personal Penguin. After having lived with them both myself for ten months, I was super happy that they were making the official, totally official. All my ‘Congratulations’ however, was simmering on top of a pot of anxiety.
Sunday evening has come to an end, and I was hoping to be thrilled that my 13 day stretch of back to back 9 – 11 hour plus shifts was up after tomorrow’s finale, and on Tuesday, I could rest. But no… and not just because my body would probably go in to shock if … More It best not come in threes. Please.

Thanks to Air New Zealand a wee while back, I snapped up some super cheap flights down to a … More Out with the old, in with the New, Plymouth
Four years ago today, like actually today, I skipped off the delightful plane and nervously made my way through the airport. Don’t go thinking I was nervous because I had drugs on my person, that wasn’t the case, and no, they weren’t in my luggage either, I was nervous because it was my last chance … More Anniversary happy.
Three English gals, all celebrating receiving their NZ Residency in the last 6 months or so, what better way to toast the occasion, than with tea. You can take the girls out of England… Myself and two girlfriends, who a little over three years ago, were complete strangers to each other, having all arrived in … More Tea for two. Or in this case, three is the magic number.
Day 1. Fat. Day 2. Still fat. Day 3. I wish I was as fat as I was on Day 1. Day 4. I wonder if it would hurt to sew, or even staple, my mouth shut? Day 268. I’m a mess. Today. Let’s sort this shit.
After two weeks of bed rest, I was as keen as my 50 hour working week boyfriend to get away from it all. With the Queen having a birthday weekend, giving us a bonus play day, I suggested a night camping under the stars to escape real life. With it being the start of Winter, … More Fit for a Queen…s Birthday.
