The New Year

Hi y'all

Thanks for all your special Christmas and New Years wishes. I was having a splendid time in sunny Ashburton with my family, getting lots of work doing nothing in!

I did the sum total of about two jobs over my holiday. I helped Mum one morning with dead-heading her roses, (they are beautiful and smell divine). And I helped my brother one afternoon with pulling down some fences. Or rather pulling up some wire as my bit of fence had decided to hide underground for a bit. It was probably cooler there.

Anyhoo, now that I'm back in my flat in Auckland (and about to start work again) I have decided to clean out my room - give some clothes to the Sallies, throw out a lot of useless junk, and find some sort of storage for everything else. When I'm done there I'll be buying an old set of McLaren Amplirfiers (old but amazing) to drive my super-speakers, and THEN, I'm sure, I will be ready to sit down and write a little about my 5 days of holiday in America.

Unless I find a good book...

It must be great to be home. Looking forward to your next post. Although I'm half hoping you do find a good book, there's nothing better :)

Hi Sas! Glad you are back in NZ but I still miss you and so do my roses!! They need attention daily to remain magnificent. Much nicer working with them today when the temperature is the the 20 s and not the 30 s of last week! Enjoy your day and have a good week at work. Hugs to Plumpy. xxxMxxx

Nice to see you are home again JLS!
Do you expect to be around for a while? Have you had a chance to get home to the South Island yet?
