Southern Girl

Well, I am feeling very guilty and quite shut off from the blog world, as it has been quite some time since I have written, and even longer since I have read what everyone else is up to!

Allow me to explain...
As the last part of my degree, I have been sent to Dunedin to work in an internship-esque arrangement for 3 whole months! Unfortunately, I don't have internet access at home so I have not been able to post anything.
So, I've snuck on here in my tea break to reassure those who care that I have not, in fact, fallen off the face of the earth. I am just quite near the bottom of it, literally.

I plan on heading back home every second weekend or so, and while I am back in my own home, will most definitely endeavor to a) do something that involves my sewing machine, kitchen, or garden, and b) write something about it!

Paddy, who is in charge of my very baby seedlings, and protecting my fruit trees from any sign of a frost, assures me that everything is fine, and the house and garden are still standing. I get almost nightly updates and he even brought me photos down this last weekend as proof my trees were alive and kicking (as much as mostly dormant trees can be...). What a darling, he sure knows how I tick.

I am still myself though, as much as is possible, and I'm still baking, and making bread and buying my veges from the Farmer's Market. However, with a laptop that won't read my camera, no internet, and a flatmate I am trying not to weird out too much ("excuse me, can I please photograph your dinner?"),  it has been hard to write about these things.

So, that's where I am, and will be for quite a few more weeks. I look forward to a thorough catch-up of everyones goings-ons and a new and exciting post this coming weekend.


  1. I was wondering where you went. Good luck over the coming weeks. How lovely that Paddy looks after your garden. xx
