I had new glass put in my shower screen today, and now my bathroom smells like old smelly socks from the anti fungal silicon stuff they used.
The glass guy told me not to worry about it, because it’ll go away in a couple of weeks or months.
wonderful, I feel so much better.
….and not really anything to say…
It’s windy, but I guess not as windy as it was in Melbourne last night, so probably not worth mentioning..although they are warning us to stay inside and away from windows, so maybe it’s noteworthy afterall….I’ll let you know if a tree falls on me….again.
It’s cold too […]
Now that I’ve figured out how to turn the huge Quicktime files I get from my camera into something a little more web friendly, here are three short videos from my time in New Zealand.
The rocky Kapiti coast near Wellington (697KB)
On the road to the Tawhiti Museum, showing Mt […]
Yesterday was another do nothing day – just bought some souvenirs and gifts, and then pottered around at home all day.
In the evening I took Estelle, Craig and Anjali out to The Bollywood Stars – an Indian restaurant that they often go to. Dinner was very nice, and very filling, and the coffee […]
Yesterday we headed up towards New Plymouth
Our first destination was the Tawhiti Museum near Harewa.
The Tawhiti museum is pretty much made up of dioramas of varying scales – quite a few lifesized ones, and hundreds of little miniature ones, all very detailed.
Unfortunately, since I started taking photos absolutely everywhere, I […]
Well, yesterday my one real goal was to drive up the Para Para highway to Raetihi, and maybe if time allowed circle the mountains and come back down the desert road side.
The Para Paras were still showing signs of the storm in February – there were a number of places where the road was […]
normally I’d be sorting out and uploading my photos right now, so I could write up what I did in the morning…
but I drove about 600 kms today, to Taupo and back, and 137 photos later, I’m buggered, and right now if I see another panorama of a mountain or a lake, I’ll […]
Yesterday I did very little, I slept in till about ten, and then just sat around the house for a few hours – and spent some time chasing bumble-bees round the flowers with my camera, with mixed success…heh
I did go back up to Durie hill to get a better shot of the memorial tower […]
I got sunburnt.
Yesterday I spent the day wandering around the city. I had originally planned to park in Victoria Avenue and wander down it, but it occured to me that whilst I had some New Zealand money – I didn’t have any change.
So instead I went […]
Why is it that you can never sleep the night before you have to get up obscenely early to go somewhere?
I woke up nearly every half hour, and lay awake from 4:30am through tll 10 to 5 when I figured there wasn’t any point waiting the last ten minutes for my alarm.
