And it's Official

We just got back from Blenheim about two minutes ago, and the Marlborough Weavers blog is official. Yay. I did "enthusiastic" well, but "low-keyed"?; more like "hysterical". Must try harder.

About 500 meters from our house on our way back, Ben got a speeding ticket. Shucks.



  1. According to their on-board speed gun, I was doing 65km/h on a 50km/h stretch; he was doing 51km/h - he showed this to me when handing over the ticket. The damage was $80.00 and 20 points of demerits. There was no other car around on the dark Rocks Road... Well, it sounds like an excuse, so I'll stop here. It's worth driving to Blenheim, it was really a good drive; except that last part. I'll pay a little more attention on the speedometer next time.

  2. Ah, don't worry, Ben. I didn't throw up getting stopped by a cop. Isn't it wonderful that we discovered we have a Sheik police officer in Nelson, though?

  3. Hi Meg. I have been hoping to get a community blog similar to this started for our little art school. The director is nervous about it. I think I will forward her the link and let her imagine the possibilities!

  4. ahhh so it goes.

    looks like you put alot of time and effort into setting up the blog.


  5. I mean, Sikh, Ben. I knew I posted in haste. Yeah...

    Dana, starting small is the key, I think. For instance, in our case, friends and family will always be the first target market in the first instance.

    Thank you, Lynne. But after speaking to the group last night, on our way home, I've decided to change a few other things, too, to be more suitable to the group. Minor things, you know, making it kinder to this particular group, that sort of thing...


I love comments. Thank you for taking the time! But do please leave your real or blog name.
