As I sit at Auckland Airport my head is racing with all I have to do over the next couple of days (my urgent list) and then over the next month or six weeks, my semi-urgent list.
First on the urgent list is to go back and correct all the spelling mistakes, and links that are not working in the last fifteen or so ‘on-the-road’ blogs: I have been using Windows Live Writer which then sends my blog as an email to WordPress– the only problem is that when I made a mistake and pushed the publish button without checking spelling – I couldn’t work out how to go back and correct them! So that’s the first task. the other problem – a new smaller laptop which has a super-sensitive touchpad which meant I would accidently grab/highlight random phrases and unknowingly dropped them elsewhere in the blog where it made no sense at all –I’m sorry for all you super-sensitive and great spellers for having to endure it all!
Next on the urgent list is to upload nearly 5000 photos and start sorting them;
Then, sort my emails that have kept flowing into my inbox,
In between those jobs, a I will catch up on sleep and write to all the people who have been so hospitable to me – if you visit any of the Northland places I have mentioned, please make sure you tell them you read about it on something the Kiwi Travel Writer wrote .
Last but not least, my final destination was The Kauri Museum: every one I met ‘up North’ who had been there said it was a must do – that’s true, go there, now! I can’t upload my photos now, but will write about it very soon.
. . . and now to board the flight …
