The Daily Oxford is my online diary of living in rural New Zealand. After decades in urban Australia, I had a hissy fit and decided to move to NZ in May 2010. Who knows what the future holds – that’s the exciting part. We shape our future, so join me as I shape mine and learn along with me how a city girl transforms into a rural girl. I’m sure there will be tears and tantrums along the way.
I’ll be figuring out how to grow vegetables (you mean they don’t come from supermarkets?) and looking perplexed as I learn how to look after horses, cows, sheep and goats. I’ll also be learning how to live in rural NZ after years of living in Sydney and working in high profile organisations. I’ll be swapping the corporate clothes, shoes and handbags for wellingtons, sturdy farm boots and…quite possibly…no make-up. Yeah, well I doubt that but you never know.
The DailyOxford is also the blog of my two English Pointers – Zeph and Zsa Zsa. They get up to all sorts of adventures on the property and want to tell you all about them. So if you’re interested in English Pointers (the BEST dog breed), keep coming back.
As I travel around, getting to know my new country and New Zealanders, I’ll be taking heaps of photos and will post them right here on The Daily Oxford. Oh and by the way: all photos on this blog are taken by me, unless otherwise stated. So that means All Rights Reserved, which in plain English simply means you may not copy or reproduce my photos in any way without my permission. Please respect this.
