Just over 2 weeks into my time in Dunedin and I'm starting to feel settled in.

I'm in a good house about 25 mins walk away from the hospital (which is in the centre of town). My housemates are Nick, Elisha and Shelley and the are all very friendly and welcoming.

2 hours in Singapore airport. Was pretty shattered from the 12 hour flight across from London and had only a short time here before the 9 hour journey to New Zealand. Did manage a quick drink and went forÂ a long rapid walk around the airport (after so long cramped in the plane).

Got to spend an extra few days in Southern Ireland with my folkes who were over for a week long holiday....
Back home in the UK for 6 weeks...COLD!I headed up to even colder Newcastle for Andrew Ace's Wedding in stunning Maflen Hall. It was a good day and we were treated to a display of Kareoke that I find hard to put into words - just look at the effort on Ace's face!After keeping them safe for 6 months in South America I thought my camera and passport would be pretty safe in the UK.Ã¯Â¿Â½Didn'tÃ¯Â¿Â½think I'd manage to loose the passport a...
