Heading Downtown

Today was my first day alone in NZ. The hostfamily have gone to Fiji for almost a week and so the exploring of Auckland begins. I woke up quite early and said goodbye and could not go back to sleep after that. So I stayed up and read 'Ninas Resa' by Lena Einhorn. Really good and interesting, but of course terrible.

I had some stuff on my to-do list today so I took the bus down to Auckland City and started my small adventure. I walked wrong a lot but bumped into the library on one of tose "extra trips". I sill have qutie a few books that I brought from Sweden to read so borrowed two movies instead. 'Pirates' and 'The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas'. I also bought a pig bank to try to save up some money during my time here. Good luck...

A project that I have been thinking of is to create a big photoalbum with pictures from vacations and journies, or just really fun moments I want to remember. I want one where you can put the pages in yourself, so that I can start with the pictures I am taking here but later be able to compiment with earlier trips. No store that I looked in had one of those so that will just have to wait. Anyone who knows where I can buy one?

In the meantime I still have a knitting I started on last autumn that needs to be finnished, and a friend just yesterday told me about this knitting-thing her host mom is organizing. She is to cover a handrail in a long knitted thing and every day people from all over the world is sending in their contribution to her. I want to as well! How about you making one too?;)

I also activated my gym membership at the university yesterday so with two knitting projects, a month membership at the gym, plenty of books from Sweden, a library card, new friends, a tree-year-old to take care of, working extra at a defence lawyer's office, keeping contact with family and friends and try to post some here not too rarely it might even be a good thing that I do not have that photoalbum to make as well;)

Now I am off to buy some dinner and then it will just be me, the crazy cat, the food, unhealthy chocolatey things and a movie:) After walking around as much, and walking wrong as much, as I have today I think I deserve it;) Have a great weekend everyone! Bye bye..
