Hello faithful fluffygeorges, happy new year, I hope all went well for you over the break. I went to Christchurch for a week and did a a bit of cricket watching, a wonderful trip to Long Bay near Akaroa to visit friends, a walk around the city and to visit family. All lovely with great weather and no quakes.
As you know I love Leunig so I was moved to see this at the memorial for the quakes.
No visit to Christchurch is complete without a visit to my BFF and a wander around the township. So good to see the awakening of cafes and music.
It is always good to come home and the summer continues with tile-making, knitting and of course, great food. It is such a pleasure to walk into the garden in the morning and pick a tomato to eat. They smell delicious.
What I’m watching:
For fun and laughter the movie What We Did On Our Holidays
Loved the cast, especially the kids!
And for a lot less fun and laughter, um none actually, Mr Turner. I enjoyed it but both my companions found it a bit tedious. It is long too. Timothy Spall is great but the character is fairly hard to empathise with. His ex wife is depicted as an old witch but as she has his children you can’t really blame her for wanting him to take an interest and some responsibility. Being an “artist” it seems, lets you away with bad behaviour.
Lots of challenges and changes ahead for me in 2015 so wishing you a good year too. As always, I turn to Leunig for advice. 🙂 FG
