Umm hi

Sorry... I am here - just being very boring really.

Work's flat out. We have a new note system that has my team duplicating our notes, but handy to everyone else (well, it will be eventually - when we learn how to use it properly - I hope!). I'd love to tell you about some of our funnier customers but work does frown on that sort of thing. I will say that it does give us a bit of a chuckle when our customers tell us they can't figure out whether to use the 'ethanol' or the 'ubs' cable for their 'dls' modem.

Karate's moving on, though I haven't done much the last two weeks as my ankle has been playing up (I twisted it years ago and it gets a bit sore every now and then). I did get some of the group's dvds to try to practice with (I cannot get the hang of the kata and I need to if I want to ever get my yellow belt). I just did an hour's practice now and all I've learned is how truly uncoordinated I am. (Insert big sigh here...)

Our New Zealand trip is only a couple of weeks away (omg! How did that sneak up so quickly?). I think we're all organised. I hope we're all organised. Anyone got any last minute advice for someone who's barely seen it snow before?

I really need to catch up with everyone's blogs. My bloglines has a million unread posts. Plenty of saved ones too, so one of these days I'll come comment on those. Don't be surprised if you see some comments from a post you made weeks ago.... eventually!

Um... really there's not a lot happening here lately. Told you I was boring. At least the holiday soon will mean I'll have something to talk about.

All I will say, as a native, going to NZ, thermals thermals thermals!!! You can't have enough for the Sth Island, & if you are going to the snowfields in the North- thermals!
I hope you enjoy your trip!! It truly is Godzone!

Have a great trip! My cousin from the UK arrives tonight on her way to NZ so I could give you a few more tips when they return ... I agree with the thermals though!

Oh, I'm jealous, I've always wanted to go to NZ.

I hope you have a fantastic time.

Have fun on your trip. The only cold weather advice I have is : layer, layer, layer, layer!

Nice to see you back, if only for a moment or two!
