- er, first up apologies but as there were more than 260 + myfeeds this morning when I finally had a chance to look through them, I will not be reading them all. I would like to borrow from Mark the - lets just say I read them - trick. pretty please with cherries and strawberries and ice cream on top. I did go through a few but I simply don't have time to get through them all.
Well my holiday was great - eating, drinking, walking, swimming, playing cards, feeding the sandflies (midges), they fed me (I'm sure I swallowed ...Read more
Yay for getting two days off over Easter.
I gave my notice at work today - even though I still don't have a date for going to Korea yet. I'm still waiting for a couple of documents to send off for my visa application. Bit scary but good scary. I am trying to sort out what I want to store, what I want to take and what I will get rid of. I feel like I am drowning in junk . I'm sure other parents will know exactly what I mean and ...Read more

On Wednesday I went to the vet's to visit my sweet kitty and I took my girl. Liquorice was doing well and recovering feeling in his hind quarters. However yesterday after returning from teaching in Golden Bay (teaching self defence is a blog for another day) I went to visit him only to find he had a turn for the worse and had lost all function in one of his front legs too. .
This morning he had lost all function in his rear right leg - basically he was paralysed down his right side ...Read more
I had a great weekend but it has ended sadly (but things might still be okay fingers and toes crossed)
I went down to Banks Peninsula for a women's self defence training hui (specifically to learn age appropriate methods for 7, 8 year olds and 15, 16 year olds). It was great, I love getting together with these women. Not many women, even sporty women, are into wrestling and rough n tumble play. There were a few bruises but no blood or broken bones Read more
Okay, I got offered a job in Gyeongnam Province in South Korea teaching English - starting in April - omg so close I don't know if I'm going to have time to get all the legal documentation for my visa application from my University and the Ministry of Justice etc, as I have to prove I'm not a fake degree making, drug pushing (the blood tests happen in Korea) crim. Fair enough too, I wish the NZ Govt was a little more stringent sometimes, especially on those coming in to work with kids.
Now I hav...Read more

I just had a school reunion this weekend as my high school - Nelson College for Girls - celebrated its 125th Jubilee. 125 years old is quite old for a secondary school for girls - a school that also taught and valued academic subjects as opposed to needle work, deportment, cooking and piano. This school opened 10 years before NZ women were enfranchised (got the vote).
It was a bloody great weekend and I feel a little sad now that it is over. It was so good catching up with old friends. There wasn't a great turn out from girls there i...Read more
Yes, I went to the Opera on Saturday night with my mother. I was abit unsure about it as I have never been into Opera but I thought what the hey, gotta give everything a go.
I had a very busy weekend with Board Meetings all day Saturday and Sunday and with my mother and a couple of her friends staying.
Kiri Te Kanawa came to Nelson, WOOT , to Trafalgar Park, so it was an outdoor concert. It felt a little odd for me to be watching Opera there given all of my school atheletic sports...Read more
