|View out my window this morning.|
|You probably can't see all the detail, but|
this was the result of my work today.
Lots of time, little to show for it.
|My office / desk. I had five different|
maps spread out as I tried to selectively
compile data from all of them together.
On a more upbeat note, I think I have found accomodation for when I am in Christchurch after new year. It is a small cottage that a GNS scientist bought because they were seconded to Christchurch because of Earthquake work (or at least that is my understanding). They couldn't find a place to rent, so they ended up buying the cottage - mortgage was cheaper than rent. They will still have access and have stuff in the garage, but I will be renting it from them. No bricks, no concrete, all wood, on one level - YEAH! I am so relieved - I had been really worried about finding a place to live there. It is 20 minutes walk from the University - and much less by bicycle. I think I'll give up for the day now and go walk downtown to the public library. It will be warm there, it is open until 8 pm.
