100 Days Project

Janey: My Wellington Winter

A study in appreciating a winter in Wellington.

As the saying goes, you can't beat Wellington on a good day, and this summer has reminded me of what a great place it is. Winter, however, can be a trying time in this city. The weather is rubbish and it's hard to see a good side to it. There's no snow to frolick in (well it happened once a couple of years ago and was the highlight of the year), there's no point owning an umbrella (rubbish bins in the city are graveyards for inside out umbrellas) and it's often hard to watch telly in a southerly.

I intend, therefore, to learn to appreciate my winter in Welllington. I will take one photo every day of something that makes me appreciate my day. I will write a one word title for each photo, and I will write 100 words about each photo. This will all be included on my website.

At the end of the project I will have a collection that (hopefully) encompasses my winter in Wellington.

Day 15:



I went to a gig tonight at a venue called Puppies. I went because hubs was promoting it and I didn’t usually get to hang out at youngster places with hippity hoppity rappity music. He doesn’t normally promote these types with their caps on to the left and entourage of hip hangers-on, but there’s a first time for everything huh?!

I was a really fun night actually. I totally didn’t fit in, and I was probably easily ten years more aged than the oldest youngster in the place, but I drank cheap wine and bopped along and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
