An email from the inimitable Kat:

The new year started (again) rather late in the morning. Walking down Courtenay Place was surprisingly pristine.
Shopping the Cue sale. With a gift voucher from Christmas, the regular sale, and an extra 20 per cent off for Cue Club members, I got that skirt at the front for SIX dollars. Six.
Coffee in the sun. Only Mojo Bank Arcade was open.
Bush walking in Percy Scenic Reserve.
Ropes along Oriental Parade. I had just left a successful coffee meeting with my new boss (!).
Sometimes this little country can look quite big.
We were headed to Napier.
In Napier we visited an antique store and tried on all the amazing hats.
I almost bought that fuzzy white turban. I only stopped because, well, because it is a fuzzy white turban,

Oh how I did not want to start my fifth (FIFTH!) year of taking a photo every-damn-day* by posting a day late. But I am sleepy. So very sleepy.
The past three days have been somewhat hectic.
My lovely family travelled to Napier for my oldest** friend's New Zealand wedding reception***. A round trip of 770km punctuated with minigolf, swimming pools, brunch, a farmers market, and of course a night of drinking and dancing.

* in 2008 I only took 23 photos before giving up. In 2009 I missed one day (agony!). In 2010 & 2011 I took the full 365. This year I get to take 366.
** the story is thus: when I was two (three?) years old my family moved into a little house. Another family was moving in right next door. Each family had a Ford Laser. All parents were high school teachers. Each family had a daughter of few years and the name Sara(h). The stuff that, if not legends, lifelong family friendships are made of.
*** her husband is Japanese, they live in Japan and had their wedding there last April. Now she's five months pregnant! But she still got back into that beautiful dress. It was just laced a lot looser.
