Hello foreign visitors! Welcome!
I have been feeling guilty - you're all peeking into my terribly staid life in New Zealand and I am offering up no lovely pictures of children or views or activities - in part because I'm not a mother (unless the cats count) and in part because I seek to keep mah blog semi-anonymous. Also, I am useless at taking pictures.
Here's a brief intro - probably enough material together to make it apparent exactly who I am!
A: Female, 31, Married, No Kids, Auckland New Zealand, Solicitor. Lived in New York for a year '09-'10 and in London '10-'12. Likes: eating and drinking, writing silly/whingy journal-type bits on the internet, travelling, reading, theatre, pottering in backyard, her fambily. Swears too much but generally has a sunny outlook, even if she does spent a disproportionate number of blogposts whinging. Generally useless. SRSLY.
Husband is P. P likes: wine, whiskey, sports, cooking, travelling, does worky things at work and has a wicked sense of humour. I broke his nose one time in the middle of the night.
Hometown is Auckland. City of about 1.5 million, full of traffic jams, beaches, dormant/extinct volcanoes and weather that makes A's hair crazy. Subtropical, so it rains a bit - temps year round between 0 and 30 degrees celcius. Kiwis like to wear black, jandals (flipflops), say 'yeah nah' because even if we disagree, we can't be too rude about it, watch/play sports, eat fish and chips, drink beersies, and go to the beach. We have horrific accents (somewhere between an Aussie and generic-British accent, very flat vowel sounds) and talk incredibly fast.
Cats are Tabitha and Cocoa. They are SPCA moggies who are cute.
Um, that's all I think? Nice to meet you.
