Happy New Year!

Howdy Folks! Happy new year to everyone!

Sorry for the lack of swonderful updates...
Rom (my boyfriend/ partner/ team-mate) & I went north for a bit of a break (although we don't know what from!) firstly back to our hometown of Auckland to stay with his Mum for a few days & then to Sandy bay in the Coromandel with our friends Julia & Zeb, The weather was pretty perfect , we ate heaps & swam in the sea & the river, got nice & brown- but not burnt!

I read
The Minotaur Takes A Cigarette Break by Steven Sherrill & Rom has just about finished Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, both are really really good & y'all should get your hands on a copy.

I wanted to write a really nice New Year welcome before I get to the sad news, but I don't think I can top what the wonderful folks at Meet Me at Mikes have written, so I will share it with you...
(Meet Me at Mikes Rules BTW)

May all your socks match up after washing day, may all your toilet seats be down (or up, depending on your gender!), may all your letters not have little windows in the front - just scrawly handwriting and little love-hearts, may all your dogs not bark at night, may all your children sleep from 9pm til 6am, may all nits, cooties, mozzies, worms and other yick never show their faces (do they have faces?), may all your crafting flow like a calm, magical river, may all your babies be toilet trained overnight, may you all sneak an extra hour into the day that no-one can interrupt, may you all manage to read a really good book each month, may you all climb out of bed in the morning and find an imaginary friend who's a makeup artist slash wardrobe assistant waiting to dress and pretty you up in only 12.5 seconds, may you all be happy and healthy and gay (or not gay, sup to you!). Happy happy best ever new year.
