Listening to Jake Bugg and thinking about my brother.
The lorry driver that waved at us. And then waving at all the other big campervans and watching them automatically wave back and then look slightly confused.
Walking up a big hill/small mountain to see the 360° of mountains and clouds and lakes. Absolutely amazing.
And a sneaky fourth little thing for today: driving the big campervan and manoeuvering it backwards into a small camp spot.

The sheep sounds that play to you as you arrive in Christchurch airport.
Listening to Fuse ODG. On repeat.
Picking up the campervan. It’s huge!

The public toilet that played music.
The beautiful weather all day that let my parents see the amazing landscape. Accidentally timing the trip up Mt Victoria perfectly and watching the most incredible sunset that just kept getting better and better. The perfect end to a fantastic day.

Hot cross bun for breakfast.
Driving through bits of the city we haven’t seen before, around the coast and walking out to the lighthouse. Well, almost. It’s quite far.
Seeing the little, personal cable cars that people have for their houses that are up really steep slopes.

My parents arrived! It’s been 10 months since I’ve seen then and it was amazing to see them, hug them, talk to them.
The crazy but awesome apartment we rented that’s decorated like it’s the 70′s.
Mum bought us Minstrels!

Killed a few flies in quick succession at work. I was like a fly killing ninja.
The weather was gorgeous today. It was so lovely walking down to work in the sun and enjoying the quiet of early morning bank holiday.
Thinking about all the things that I’ve done, places I’ve been and stories I can tell. Sometimes I need to stand back a little and realise that I’m stronger than I think I am.

A big dollop of mashed potato at lunch.
A hot shower after work, washing my hair and relieving my period pains.
Finding out I’ll get paid time and a half tomorrow on top of getting a day off in lieu.

Spending the evening playing stupid internet games.
Talking to mum. They’ll be here soon!
Napping and cuddling after work.

The doppelganger of one of my best friends at home came into work again today. And took a selfie with me! Amazing. Couldn’t stop smiling for ages.
Kissing.
A big flat meal with two roast chickens and deliciously crispy roast potatoes.

Our housemate bought this map back from work for us. A little reminder of home. Now proudly on our wall.
Taking the huge amount of spare plastic bags from work to the soup kitchen for them to give out extra food in. The woman have me a little tour and lots of information about the kitchen. It was really cool. And it always feels good to do good.
Randomly getting a whiff of the smell of wood smoke and the workshop smell from uni as I wondered through town.
