New Zealand still doesn’t have a government—that is, the new government hasn’t been able to strike a coalition deal yet. I talk about that first. Then, I talk about what I’ve been up to, including updates to some things I’ve talked about in recent episodes.
The New Zealand General Election finishes tomorrow—finally! As I said last week, no one has any idea what’s going to happen, but it’s likely to be very close whatever it is. I also update a bit from last week, and tell you about my technological win.
I lost several days last week after I hurt myself. Oops. I talk about that first today, and then a bit about the New Zealand General Election because Advance Voting began on Monday. It’ll be interesting to see what happens (which is a nice way of saying no one has any idea what’s going to happen).
Today’s episode is named after two anniversaries: Today is the seventeenth anniversary of my blog, and yesterday was the 28th anniversary of when I first arrived in New Zealand as a tourist, when Nigel and I met in person for the first time. This coming weekend is also the final Pride 48 Live Streaming Event, and I reminisce and opine about podcasting. Then, I briefly talk about a small project outside. Finally, I share a funny (to me) story form New Zealand’s news.
Dare I say it? Spring may have sprung! I also share my surprise at how well the pool noodles have worked. My main topic today is about why and how I developed my personal organisation system, and that’s actually a story about how I’m doing these days.
The weather is still a barrier—but I managed to move around it. This week is mainly an update on what’s going on, including everyone’s favourite topic, as well as things I talked about last week. Naturally, there’s also new stuff for me and for New Zealand that I talk about toward the end of the episode. The Rugby World Cup – France 2023 runs from September 8 to 28.
