The end is nigh...but it's another year tomorrow. I won't be staying up - the New Year is coming anyway and it doesn't need any help from me.
While in Christchurch over Christmas, Sophie took me into Restart, the container city that's been set up in Cashel Mall. (For overseas readers, much of the inner city was destroyed in the February earthquake of 2011). While there have been myriads of photos published, I hadn't been into the city and seen how it looked for myself. These photos were taken with my phone.
It's a time of renewal and regrowth in Christchurch, and my son Cass and girlfriend Cat will be moving here in the New Year to be part of this.
Best wishes to all my blog friends and readers for a happy and productive year.
