The delicious lentil salad I made for dinner.
A nice message from his aunt.

Getting up before everyone else and sitting in the sun meditating and reading.
Driving into Wellington on SH2 and seeing the beautiful city glimmering in the sunlight, just like it did nearly a whole year ago when we arrived.
The whole flat together, eating and laughing and laughing so much that eating is difficult.

The ridiculous wind at the market this morning.
Trying to carry him to bed and hearing him giggle like a maniac.

Doing pore strips with my male housemates. One of them had the most disgusting black bits on his.
Deciding that neither of us wants to get married. Ever. And we’re more than happy as we are.
I wore shorts outside for the first time this Spring. The sky was so blue, the air was warm and my legs were free.

Body boarding down sand dunes. So. Much. Fun.
Seeing the most northerly point in New Zealand in beautiful weather, driving past really Australian looking scenery.
Wandering around the lovely campsite in the evening sun, spending some alone time together.

Sitting in the peace and quiet by the river and remembering what it’s like to be somewhere with no wind. So calm and still and so silent.
So many beautiful views of the sea as we drove further round the coast.
The cute 70’s kitchen in the youth hostel. Such thick paint, such shallow drawers.

Watching Jinkx Monsoon lip sync for her place in the final three of RuPaul’s season 5. She is hilarious!

A beautiful Wellington day
Driving the van around the bay.
The driver who laughed with me when I didn’t know where I was going or what I was doing. No road rage in Eastbourne.

The sun on my neck, feeling positively warm.
Cleaning the van after work. Clean clean clean.
Playing Resistance Avalon. And not insisting that I’m not a spy. A good way to confuse people.

image

We bought a van!
The huge red butterfly at the market.
Another beautiful warm, sunny and wind free day. We sat by the seafront after buying our veg to enjoy the weather and drink a delicious organic juice squeezed by a man at the market.

A love message from my friend Hannah.
A shooting star.
Walking down to the waterfront to see the Lux light festival and it was so still. Plus the light installations were cool. And we got to yell really loudly into them.

The crazy weather. Huge clap of thunder and then hail so heavy that it laid for a while.
Trying the ridiculously rich chocolate cake at work. So. Good.

Sitting outside at lunch time to enjoy the gorgeous blue sky.
My first sewing knits class. It’s nice to learn new things again. And muttering ‘shit shit shit’ next to a woman also muttering ‘shit shit shit’.
Telling everyone what an absolute twat I am because I was too embarrassed (and British) to correct my sewing teacher when she thought I was someone else and called me by a. different name she even asked me directly ‘and how are you doing Lisa?’ And I answered! What an idiot. How am I ever going to correct her?! Oh well, at least it’s funny!

image

Having a shower with the sun shining through the window. It’s nice to have a shower in the daylight but it also reminded me of showering at home in the summer, knowing I had a whole day of being outside in the garden or the countryside ahead of me, with my parents near by and everything being safe and normal.
The weather was beautiful today. The market was full with people buying bags of fresh, colorful good and afterwards I sat on the dock, thinking and meditating a bit and for the first time thinking to myself that maybe I could stay here longer. It’s a beautiful city. And the winters are just so sunny.
The sunlight glittering off the sea. It looked like an elaborate light show just for me.

image

The beautiful day. Pure blue sky, no wind and it felt quite warm again.
The smell of a French campsite in summer, reminding me of all my wonderful relaxing holidays with my parents.
The Noble Family. Especially the Mexican version of a Michael Jackson song at the end credits.

Using the new sewing machine for the first time.
A pigeon that was being blown sideways across the pavement because of the wind.
