Oh dear...

My New Year’s resolution to update this blog has not been going well. Perhaps keeping New Year’s resolutions should have been number one on my resolution list.

January was an interesting month. It was a stretching time as I returned home from Dunedin early, and took some temp’ work. I think my need for routine and security conflicted with this ‘go with the flow’ life-style, and I found myself feeling inexplicably stressed and miserable for much of the month. The unseasonably cold weather and being alone in the flat didn’t help matters. A more fun aspect of January was that a whole bunch of my friends celebrated their birthdays so while we mourned the lack of sun, some comfort was to be found in an abundance of social gatherings and lots of cake!

Summer has finally arrived in Wellington and what it is just great being able to wear shorts and skirts again and hang out at the beach. Last weekend, we had Sam and Kat up to stay for the Sevens (rugby). I didn’t go to it, but Liz, Sam and Kat had a blast and even made the news! Everybody gets dressed up for the Sevens and the girls went as policewomen, and declared themselves responsible for crowd control. It was a lot of fun meeting up with old friends for brunch in town, hanging out at our flat, and having fish and chips down at Lyall Bay. I had a lovely swim on Sunday evening, the water was so warm!

It is a time of transition as I prepare to start back at University, to readjust to a student lifestyle, and to study the dreaded shorthand needed for my course. I am looking forward to getting into routine again and think the course should be interesting and very challenging. An aspect that really appeals to me is that we will be a very small class (just over 20 students I think).
