Here are two views (sorry), taken at 180 degrees from each other from the same spot on our front deck.

We live in a beautiful spot. I'm not sure I'll ever want to move.

Those *&^#$@% possums! Not content with eating the buds off my rose bush, ruining the best display it had promised, they then ate half the leaves last night!!

The rose has now been moved to the protected veranda, but it is sadly lop-sided. I am planning to ask the landlord if I can borrow his trap, and set outside our bedroom window, where those blasted possums have been rampaging.


Will post something soon about my finished corset, once I figure out how to post photos.

Hmph. Office-hour yesterday was spent actually doing course related things. I keep forgetting that I leave all the tests to mark during that time.

So, in brief, to catch up... Nothing happens.

Other than... )
Well, that was long enough. I think that's all I have to say that's of any use. And I will try and keep more up to date, in the future.

Our Place

So, after weeks spent trawling Trademe, I found an intriguing ad in the New Zealand Herald. A paper copy, too. Maybe the internet isn't the final answer.

The outcome of that discovery is that [livejournal.com profile] zcatcurious and I have a place in the woods. From the 2nd of June, we will be renting a 2 bedroom cottage, with Kent log-burner, and a walk-in wadrobe with a window - office number 2. It is in Laingholm - just beyond Titirangi, and is entirely surrounded by regenerating kauri trees - about 60yrs old, the owner said. It is small and warm, and ours.

We will be moving in over Queen's Birthday weekend, but hope to have most done on the Friday and Saturday. I realise that this could impinge on plans to transport [livejournal.com profile] theunshaven and [Bad username or site: poing to <lj user=doc_spatial @ livejournal.com]'s Buffy-fest. But we want our place.

I have been very good, and [livejournal.com profile] zcatcurious's parents have been very good, but if I get greeted with another "Good Morning", loudly and cheerfully, at 6:30 on a Saturday morning, when I am just stumbling to the bathroom, and have no intention of it being morning for another 4 hours, I will kill someone scream.

No doubt I have not been easy to live with either. We all deserve awards.
