I woke up early to head to the airport for a work trip to Christchurch. I was excited because:

  • I have never been to Christchurch
  • I was finally getting to meet team members with whom I have only worked remotely

The mood for my epic day trip was set upon arriving at Wellington Airport where I was greeted by Gandalf on his giant eagle. I quickly took some photos, although this was difficult as people were now pouring in to the food court from arrivals.

My weekend watercolour classes are now over, but I learned a lot and here are some snapshots of my progress in January!

Project 365 - Day 25 - Fun with a Lomo Instant

I am taking part in Project 365, and will be taking one photo every day and posting it online! If you would like to follow along, you can find me on Flickr, or follow on Bloglovin'!


January passed in a bit of a blur, as I worked on new projects, and slowly made my workspace more habitable. I also moved my website to a new server, which means I am a bit behind on posting my 365 updates.

I have actually managed to take at least one photo every day, even if it is just a quick snapshot while I am working.

Project 365 - Squibble - 7


I can't believe January is almost over already! Blogging took a back seat this month as I have been in planning mode, and the move to the new server took a little bit longer than expected.

I am re-instating my link round-up blog posts, but will be posting them at the end of every month instead of once a week. This year I will be focussing more on personal projects, so expect more work-in-progress posts!
