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 21:



I was sooooo tired today. Honestly it was weird. I’d had an early night and a good sleep, but something was wrong and I was knackered. My eyes were all half closed and everything and I didn’t quite know how I’d get through the day. I started the day with a V (not entirely surprising to be honest) but then went and got a coffee from the Cuban hole- in-the-wall around the corner. Woah it sure worked. Was so strong I winced at the end! Was good though. Just one more V during the day and I survived.
