Hi, everyone.

I’ve spent the last wee while trying to decide what to do with this blog. I just can’t get into it. I’m not taking many photos at the moment (I didn’t even have any to put with this entry..) and while I’ve got a fair bit going on in my life, I don’t feel the need to blog in any detail about any of it. I’m too busy with ‘real life’, I guess.

It seems very final to delete my blog, but it’s also hard to justify keeping it when I’m paying for it each month and not using it. I’m struggling to decide what to do, but if my blog suddenly disappears you’ll know what’s happened. (And you can always keep up with me over at flickr, my username is wearmystuff.)

But yeah, basically I’ve got a lot going on right now.
Abraham and I have decided to get married! We’ve talked about it for awhile and have decided to just go ahead and do it this year, while my sister is home and everyone is in one place. Things have been going so, so well for us that it really feels like the right time to do it and we’re so very happy!
So mostly I’m busy planning our wedding, which will be on the 13th of Dec. We’re keeping it very low-key and obviously we have a very minimal budget so I’m busy pulling in as many favours as I can, and trying to source everything we need at the lowest price possible. It’ll all come together but it’s a bit of a stress-out at the moment.
I’m also starting a new job. I left the job at the cafe because it was just getting far too hard to get all the way out there now that Winter is upon us. So I’ve found a job in a little kitchen goods/ gift shop in town. The shop is really beautiful, very expensive and lovely. I start next week and I’m freaking out a little about what I’m going to wear. I have to dress ‘tidy’ and cover my tattoos, and as most of you know my style tends more towards crazy than tidy, and my tattoos are nearly always on show. I’ll find something though.

What else is new? Abraham’s new job is going well, he’s finding it a bit of a challenge, but that’s a good thing I think.
Aesop is Aesop. Cheeky as, very argumentative at the moment and unfortunately is having a hard time with toilet training. He just can’t get the hang of telling someone when he needs to go, but rather wiggles and jiggles and holds on (even telling us he doesn’t need to go..) until the very last minute, causing quite a few accidents. But I’m sure this phase will pass.
I’ve started a radio show on the local alternative station. Toast on Tuesdays. Unfortunately the station is only accessible in Whakatane but if anyone is interested I can post the first two shows for download. It’s mostly indie, folky music with a few good old songs thrown in for good measure. Very mellow tuesday morning music.

I think that’s about all for now. I’m not going to promise any updates, but I’ll see how I go. I hope you’re all keeping well. x
