Nelson

For those who don't know.. my partner and I have been living in Nelson since late March. It has been the perfect little get away for us! Here's why..

We are staying in a beautiful bungalow house that looks over the harbour. No matter what the weather the view from up here is always amazing.

I love the afternoon light that sweeps into the kitchen and lounge during sunset.

Once it gets dark we switch on fairy lights and lamps.

Did I mention we have a spa pool on our deck? All in a days work.

We sometimes go to the Saturday markets where there are lots of crafts and fresh food.

This man makes planes out of drink cans. It was interesting talking to him about the construction of each plane, some of them need 14 cans!

I could not resist buying a finger puppet! Who remembers having these as children?

Dinner is a planned event. Most nights it's something special, we eat a lot of good food here in Nelson. There are also some cool cafes in town.

We like to go out for Stefano's pizza, watch movies at the cinema and attend social events like Lindsay's book launch and Light Nelson.

I make it sound like I've been on holiday, however I have been working really hard. One of my goals this year is to network. I've meet a number of creative people, including some stylish ladies for 'We are Individuals'. There has also been the NZIPP and RSA WWII Veterans Portrait Project which Tom and I have been assisting in. It was cool being a part of the ANZAC ceremony.

The launch of this new website has been a huge part of my time here. I had no idea how much work went into creating a website. Despite all the hours spent in front of my computer searching for inspiration and writing and then rewriting my blurbs I am so happy with the final product. Next is new business cards!
