nippy but nice

On June 6th "Snow was falling; snow had fallen all day. The sky spread like a grey goose’s wing from which feathers were falling.." The Years, by Virginnia Woolf

I live across the road from a park - everyone should do this.
It's spectacular all the time, particularly on the morning after a snow day.

wheeeeeeee Japan in 2 days!

Kim and Linda (the other two ladies organising this extravaganza) left for Japan yesterday.
Ignoring such pressing matters as preparing a presentation, washing clothes and doing the dishes, I decided to make them a handy dandy dictionary to help them in their first few days in Tokyo.

As Gareth is the only thing I can competantly draw from memory his face features on nearly every page.

nippon ni ikimasu!

In one week Gareth and I will be back in Japan for the Shared Lines exhibition. We are crazy excited to be going back and for such an exciting reason too.
The website is now up and running, so take a look!

With temperatures in Christchurch below zero, a smattering of ice, snow and bitter winds,  a Japan summer is looking quite attractive right now.
This is what we plan to do..
