I really enjoy the new year…the madness of Christmas is over and there’s time to breathe, rest and relax. I spent the day with family and friends, enjoying a BBQ, chatting, laughing and talking about all the possibilities the new year can bring…
Most Kiwi’s and Aussies know what the first Tuesday in November means it’s Melbourne Cup Day, the race that ‘stops the nation’. Synonymous with the race are the roses which are at their peak at Flemington Racecourse and in an omage to the day I’ve picked a rose growing in my friends garden. The scent is divine and the colour strong and bold
The rebuild of Christchurch continues post 22 February 2011 earthquake and we’ve become used to road closures, detours and long delays as ongoing repairs are made to the underground infrastructure.
When I saw this sign I thought it was a rather unique reason for a street closure as our city plays host to two high profile visitors tomorrow with the visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Just quietly I was relieved to think the royal visitors wouldn’t have an impact on my commute to work, as traffic delays have become the bain of our lives in Canterbury!
With the arrival of the royal baby I’ve been really annoyed with headlines which refer to his Mama as Kate Middleton. That’s who she used to be, her name and title have taken on a whole lot grander tone these days and I think the least the media could do is actually get it right.
Well hello there, we’ve had the luxury of a public holiday in our part of the world to honour the Queens birthday. What have you been up to? Me, well I’ve been fluffing around with my blog, the name has changed for the last time, I promise
Well HELlo, been way too loooong since I was here (had to reset my password loooong)!
Do I catch up on the past 12 months, the good, the bad and the ugly, or just start from this moment on? Honestly, I prefer option 2, the New Year seems like a time of renewal and new hope. Yes that feels right so this is the beginning once again!
So Welcome to my blog. I am looking forward to the footprints I may make this year, anything is possible and the future is unknown so I am looking forward to a few surprises. I have a major decision to make, get a new job or commit to studying full-time??? What to do?? Who knows, lets find out together.
