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.

    Here it is, December 14, 2012. I had somewhat forgotten about your blog, due to busy commitments at home and at school! What a treat this evening to stroll through your posts and read of Zephs and Zsa Zsa’s adventures! As owners of English pointers, Ben and Jingle, it’s good to know that the antics of this breed of dog are universally entertaining and hysterical! Thanks for sharing!


    1. Zeph and Zsa Zsa say they understand Rachael but do hope you come back to read about their adventures. Pointer Land is always full of fun and antics!! They say hello to Ben and Jingle.


  4. Good morning,
    I would like to publish one image that I found in your website. I would publish it in a book along with other pictures of shopping windows. The picture I am talking about is the first one featuring two mannequins at the following webpage https://dailyoxford.wordpress.com/2011/10/06/window-shopping/. I would of course cite the full source. Sorry for using the blog page to write to you about this but it is the only way I can get in touch. Could you please let me do it?
    Best regards,
    Francesco
