Home Sweet Home - The Animals

Whilst everyone is working and I'm at home, I've got two furry beings keeping me company!

Bella, the pooch, has got so much love and follows me around everywhere. Mischief, the ginge, doesn't like people too much, but will still follow me and Bella around! It's like having two little kiddies to keep me company during the day!

Bella lets me dress her up...

She might not quite be a lap dog, but she does the trick

This is what they do, they'll wait for me to go out and play and as soon as I come back in, they're right there chasing after me!

She needs no encouragement to squash a human

Here's looking at you, kid.

Home Sweet Home - The first week

I've been back in Wellington for 5 days now, and it's honestly like I've never left. Nothing has changed, places are still the same. Some people are missing or have changed, but it's definitely one of the weirdest feelings I've ever had. 

It's sooo awesome and so much fun meeting up with friends and family, but it's just such a weird concept considering I haven't seen majority of them for 2-3 years!

Anyhoo, my first week has consisted of....

A coffee date with my gorgeous Meg!

Buying Kiwi treats that I've been longing for!

Seeing my best friend for the first time in nearly 3 years! It was like we'd only just seen each other last week!

Going up to the Mount Vic lookout for the first time! 

Hanging out with the parental units! 

And going to Island Bay for the first time too! 

Bring on the next 5 weeks full of fun and adventures!

Grateful for Friendships

I met my lovely friend Mel at the school where I worked last year. Like me, she's another Kiwi indulging in London and what the world has to offer!

The weekend before I left for New Zealand was our last weekend together, as she arrives back in New Zealand the day I leave to go back to London! We will see each other in the future I'm certain of it!

We spent the better part of the day in the sun, cycling around Hyde Park. It was so lush!

Hyde Park looking a bit desert-like

Melly having fun!!! 

A Sculpture right by the Serpentine. 

Sometimes I wonder how things like this can be art - especially with a title like that! 

Climbing the structure! 

The best jump shot! 

The refreshing cider that was a cooling-down necessity

Have a safe trip home Melly and I'll see you soon!!!

Grateful Monday - 01.07.2013

Over the weekend I was extremely grateful for the amazing sunshine we had here in London. Two days in a row - the joke's on us that that was our summer come and gone!

Me and Ceirios enjoyed a lovely picnic featuring the amazing pork sammies, wine and trashy magazines...

And I loved wearing my new-old £1 shorts off eBay!

Then on Sunday I came back from Sunday Roast at my good friend's house, and sat in the park again enjoying some more sun and wine!

It was the perfect way to start and end a weekend, despite a few little bumps in between!

I'm also super grateful for the support, encouragement and help from some lovely people who I work with when I've been super freaking stressed these last few weeks!
