The All-New, Perfectly Pedestrian Adventures of Helga & Hume

So, after some deliberation, I realized that the title of this blog is a misnomer.

Helga and Hume are no longer having NZ adventures.

We are still having adventures, but more of the run-of-the-mill, life-in-general variety. And while these new adventures are certainly influenced by our fond memories of the Land of the Long White Cloud, our quests are different now. We just moved into our first house, our careers are taking fascinating turns, and we still do lots of fun stuff...

...but the question is, if this is no longer the blog of Helga and Hume's New Zealand adventures, then should there be a blog at all? Can material gained from the familiar, the everyday, and the downright pedestrian truly constitute sufficiently interesting content for a blog?

To be honest, I think the answer is yes -- life can be fascinating in any postal code. So I will keep blogging.

But be warned, if you are looking for current NZ adventures, you are reading the wrong blog. If you want amusing updates and insights, punctuated with the occasional rant, then you are in the right place.

I'm in the same boat as "kiwilauren" - but am planning a trip back to Aotearoa in 2010, so can reclaim my title then. :o) And yes, keep blogging and I'll keep reading!

Thanks, all! :-D

Neil: Paint colours are a no-go for now... apparently, there are more than a few shades of beige, and worse... they don't all match each other!!! <---shock

Lauren: 2010 wouldnt have anything to do with the world cup of Rugby, would it??? ;-)

No, actually... didn't realize it was on then. I suppose I'll have to add that to my list of things to do when I go back!
