A few months back we stayed at the gorgeous Atahuri, courtesy of those nice folks at the Kapiti Coast District Council. My review is published in today's Sunday Star Times (click here for the online version).

Bug Lab

I have been invited to the media conference today for the amazing Bug Lab at Te Papa which opens to the public tomorrow.

Those wizards at Weta Workshop have once more been involved (in fact, some of the Animator's colleagues worked on it) and it looks as amazeballs as the WWI exhibition they did that's still on at our national museum. If you haven't been to that yet, then what the hell are you waiting for?! And while you're there, check out the Bug Lab.

Cook book launch

The lovely folk at Welly restaurant Dragonfly - temporarily closed because of that dastardly quake - are launching their new cookbook tonight.

I've done a story on them and the cookbook for a national magazine which should be out next week but in the meantime am excited to go along tonight to celebrate with them (and sample some of their delicious food).

A good day

A day bookended with dogs, and studded with friends and courier pacels, couldn't fail to be positive.

This morning there was a walk along Ori Parade and coffee with my friend Julia and her two woofers, while tonight it was back to the usual Monday SPCA puppy walking.

My puppy was this adorable three-month old mixed breed - the first time she had ever been walked. There was much biting of her lead, walking backwards and refusing to go. I also had to carry her for large sections of the walk, given that the unfamiliar asphalt was tough on her tender wee paws. But oh my, she was a doll (apologies for the rubbish pics, it's hard to snap a puppy who won't sit still).

Today there was also this delivery of three new review books for North & South Magazine which I am looking forward to reading.

All of which qualifies as a good day in Shazzyland.
