Countdown to the holidays!

Well only 7 more days left at work and then its time for the holidays to begin.  Looking forward to a well earned break after a year that no one could have predicted, not even the ”moon man’ (predictor of earthquakes).

Anyway, today I was telling my children about this blog, the first question they asked me was who I was writing to and how many followers I had.  When I admitted I didn’t actually have any followers at this stage and in fact I wasn’t even certain anyone else had even read it, of course they all burst into hysterics.  Not quite the response I was expecting, anyway I told them my primary goal at the moment is to become familiar with posting and fine tuning the look of my site.

So if you have happened upon my posts, leave a comment so my children can eat a little humble pie –  your help in this endeavour will be ever so appreciated

Countdown to the holidays!

Hello world!

Nau mai haere mai!  Welcome to Our Shaky Isles, Aotearoa New Zealand.  We’ve had a shaky 14 months here in Otautahi, Christchurch.

I’m quite excited to join the world of bloggers, one of my greatest stress release has been surfing the web and being inspired by awesome wahine (women) from around the world.

It seems despite cultural differences, and multi languages spoken (or written) we women all appear to have the same universal desire, to support our tamariki (children) to grow in a loving and nuturing environments.

The sisterhood of blogging has been calling me for quite some time and I am very happy to make this my first post

Nga mihi aroha ki a koutou – love and greetings to you all!
