Step one

Officially made the first step towards Canada – even if it just to the other side of Wellington. Moved out of Chelsea Mews and in with friends on Cambridge for my last fews days in NZ. (For friends read the crazy Van der Veldens. Nary a minute goes by when the word penis isn’t mentioned, accompanied by various hip-thrusting).

Needless to say, the laughter is pretty much constant. My stomach muscles hurt.

And I’m not nervous anymore! Everything feels a little surreal I guess – no job and no flat means all the structure has fallen out of my life . I feel all light, with no responsibilities and no obligations. Freedom!

Very very much looking forward to being warm, I can tell you that. This place is freezing. 30 degrees in Cali! Thank effing god. I don’t think I can cope with being cold Any More.

Four days to go. 🙂
