I am the at the other side of the world. I have returned home. I am back again.

I moved from Christchurch to London last month, I never had this overwhelming feeling of "everything is going to be ok" before. When I think back to how scary and uncertain everything was this time last year it makes me smile, and here I am, a year...

Awoken by a 5.1 Friday, based out near the original fault line, near Dunsandel. It was about twenty to 6 this morning, and seemed to last much longer than any other one I had ever felt. I dont really understand the Ricter scale anymore, I think things like the way it moved, i.e. this was more of a rolling one that a jolt...

It was a day like any other. My boyfriend dropped me to work for half nine and I had spent the morning rolling cutlery, stocking the wine shelves and assembling the new wine list. The manager sat in the corner discussing the day-long music plans for the up and coming St Patricks Day. Since we were the most popular Irish bar in Christchurch it was...

A little homesick today.



Also, the last few days of the Buskers Festival here in ChCh, Ive been working for most of it, and anything Ive tried to go and see has been sold out. Le sigh. Nice buzz about the city nonetheless.

It's the Trad weekend in Dublin. I'll try and take as many busking photos as I can when I'm around town. If the sun was around it might help too. Time to go do the sun dance

Im currently in Melbourne.

It is a gorgeous city, really f'ing cold though. So far Ive seen penguins, hung out with a guy that used to be in Home and Away, got inspired by the Tim Buton exhibition, injested a fuck load of sugar and watched Beetle Juice and discovered my inner Dancing Queen at Abba World.

Tomorrow we're flying to Sydney at...

Something, something is about to happen.



When I first heard this song, early this summer, it conjured up memories that arent mine, but I wish were. When I was a young Irish teenager I spent many evenings alone in my room, listening to music and wishing I had friends with simular interests.

For so long I have wanted to submerge myself in a group of...

Yesterday I got a smear test done. No big deal, though I would encourage all you cervix owners out there to get one. Irish vaginas can register with CervicalCheck.ie and get it done for free, every 3 years, once you are over 25. Dont put it off, and once you realise how easy it is encourage all the other females in your life to...

The blog or the name change?

The name was just a joke with some friends. At one stage we had the entire cast of Top Gun going, even Meg Ryan...
