Last night I st…

Last night I started Wilkie Collins’ novel No Name. It’s nice to branch out a bit with the Victorians. Also baked ginger cakes for Michael and today cooked up a vat of soup.

Blogging from Gondwanaland

Time to make a record of my life and experiences on Waiheke Island.

Almost exactly 8 years ago, in late May 2004, we bought our little house on the island and moved from “The Hutch” at Joan and Hugh’s, where Michael had been staying during his house search, into our very own place. This is the 9th trip I have made down to NZ to join Michael at the end of my northern hemisphere Spring semester, which falls during the latter half of his Fall semester in Auckland.

This year I arrived ready to recover from an intense lecture trip to Taiwan, April 25-May 10, 2012.
