December!

December is going to be a MASSIVE month in the Hotpotato Household.

We're counting down to the Rotorua Half Ironman on the 19th, but before we get there, we've got Tinman this weekend, a plethora of holiday parties and, on the 17th, my last day at the job I've had for the past five years!

Then after the Half, it's back up to Auckland to pack my wee apartment up, shift it all down to Phil's parents' place in Cambridge, then turn around and go back to Auckland to take off for our 5-week European adventure!

After 5 weeks of travelling, and freezing ourselves in Seoul, Slovenia, Belgium, the Netherlands, England, Germany, Denmark and Spain, it's back to the 'tron, where I'll be house-hunting for a week, before starting work on the 8th of February (...the day after my 28th birthday), then kicking off the rest of the NZ tri-season with TriWoman races in Karapiro and (with my sister) Rotovegas.

Phew! I'm tired just thinking about it!

Bloody 'ell ... that is full on!

I don't see any mention of the Rotorua Marathon or the Tarawera Ultra? ;)

I'm sure you'll have a fantastic holiday but England in January after the Christmas festivities is the pits! Cold, dark (by 3pm), wet, windy and depressing ... altho if you're on holiday it will probably be very different. Whereabouts in England are you going?

Just visiting mates in London, leaving to go exploring on the 27th. We're back for a few days in late Jan.

Sounds so exciting! Does that mean you and Phil will be back together in the same house? or am I way behind the times on that one?

Kate said...

Yup- we'll be in the same house again, at last!

That's awesome news about you and Phil being under one roof! And your month IS packed!

Where in Spain, I am from Barcelona and if you visit I can suggest some good places to have tapas....
