Our British Day in NZ

On the weekend Tom and I decided to do the Cadbury tour but I just woke up in one of those moods, you know?

Well Tom and I can now officially call Dunedin our home (not permanently of course, Mom you can relax), I guess it’s like having a baby and it’s bad luck to tell anyone before 12 weeks, well we were holding off writing/Skyping back home and telling everyone we’ve settled down for fear that we would have to pack up and leave again. 776 more words

Remember the workshop I went to in 2012? I mentioned it briefly in my entry “The Colours of Queenstown” – well, the photos on that post weren’t from the workshop itself. 293 more words
