How To Have Fun Without A Dog

If you don't know this about me, I would probably say you don't know me very well. I am not very good at sitting still, EVER really but sometimes my body dictates especially now with this whole cancer thing that I must lie down.

Luckily the rest that is forced on by body is made better by having people to visit! It's literally been so wonderful so many friends have been spending such a huge time out in Paremata road. My friend Jess flew up simply to see me!

Luckily, this week I have had awesome events which have been able to distract me!! Philippa Boyens is honestly one of the kindest people I know. She is always so busy yet she found time to fit me in. from Phil, Fran and Katie coming to visit me in hospital before running off to premiere the movie in LA. I also got invited to go to the New Zealand Premiere with my friend Tessa (who again was up from christchurch to see me) we had the most wonderful night dressing up with the help of Sophie and Zoe. It was such a fun night and the movie is honestly so good. If anyone is tossing up going, just go. It's awesome!

The whole Hobbit cast has been so wonderful to me Richard Armitage wrote me such a wonderful email. He even said I was "you are such a wonderful, funny, thoughtful smart brave girl." which I must made my day that much better. He is such an amazing actor to not only think of me while busily promoting a movie but he also wrote me an email!

The very next day after I went to the Hobbit Premiere, I went to the Governor General's house for their christmas party! It is such a pretty place. Kate, Finn and Finn's mum Amanda got to meet the Governor General and his wife and son!

I remember saying at the beginning of blog that my life is surreal and judging by the last two days, it kind of is. My mother is worried I will turn into some Wellington socialite without realizing that I already am. It's always a hard question when people say to me "what do you do", my simplest and most truthful reply would be that 'I have fun' because that as shown by these two days is what I do!

I have had two of the best days of my life even without a dog!

  1. Hey there. You dont know me but I (am 99% positive) I saw you in the petshop upstairs at capital on the quay today. I recognised you and your parents from all your pics here on your blog, and ofcourse being in the pet shop made sense :) anyway, I really really wanted to come up to you but a)I was too shy and b) I didnt want to intrude on your personal outing, you already share so much on this blog you shouldnt have to give up just being anonymous on the street :) but I still really wanted to say this to you so thought id write to you on here instead. This is what brave me would have said to you if shy me hadn't got in the way: you dont know me but you are such a talented writer and total inspiration. Your blog is a frequent and beautiful reminder about what is really important and how life is for living. I hope you know what an amazing young woman you are and just how many lives you have touched with your story. Merry Christmas, wishing you and your family a truly magical day x o
