Here I am at MUNTFM doing my Sunday morning radio show. 88.5fm streaming from muntfm.co.nz!!! Listen from 8-10am NZ time. Eclectic music from the 80s 90s 00s and whenever...

Shifted house yesterday. I have left my beloved Karori behind for Kingston/Mornington. About a 3 minute drive from work (doesn't that mean I shouldn't be driving?).

The day was long and much sweat came out. Why is it that I am never as prepared as I should be for a move? It always takes longer than expected and I always forget things. But it is over now (sorta, still have a few random things to grab and some cleaning to do). We have the place for another two weeks though, so plenty of time to get things done.

Nothing much to say today. Woke up at 4:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, better off than Celeste who woke up at 3 and so far as I know is still awake. YUCKY.

A shout out to Le Moulin, a great, and very popular little bakery on Willis Street in Wellington CBD.

Oh, many many thanks for Andrew, Malcolm and Patrick for helping with the move yesterday!!!

I had to drive a truck, not too big, but bigger than I feel comfortable with. And then I am always paranoid because I am never willing to pay the extra cash to lower the excess (or deductible in american english) so if anything happened to the truck i could have been charged $2500. That would've hurt.

So, both last night and this morning we used our new fireplace. Love that.

Ok, that's it for today, too tired to think. I will just keep playing my music :-)

Ok, well... You'd better stay there a while. I need the security!

Oh, and maybe your address?

Hello,
We are new immigrants, too, and living in Masterton. We've been here since July 4th.
I noticed you posted a bakery review, and was wondering if you had any fantastic restaurant recommendations for Wellington.
Also- your house listing has expired. Just thought you should know randoms are paying attention. Congrats on the pregnancy.
What are your radio station call letters, the station number, and when are you on?
