So tonight I get an odd, but welcome, phone call from the lovely administrator at Travcom, the New Zealand  Association of Travel Writers, Photographers and PRs.

Back in February, I entered their annual awards, so long ago I forgot which two pieces from the last year I'd even submitted. The administrator rang whilst I was trying to wrangle dinner, send an email and feed the dog; I wasn't expecting a conversation about whether I would be flying to Auckland for the swanky events dinner on 7 May.

Of course, I hadn't the slightest intention of doing so: apart from the fact it's a school night and I have to be elsewhere on a Tuesday, it involves schlepping north and shelling out for what's not the cheapest dinner in the world. I've previously won two prizes in these awards and both years they didn't require my presence. This time, the administrator "strongly" suggested I should attend. Which hopefully means it must be good news, but what's a girl to do?



  1. Ohhh that's so exciting! When will you find out? Well done you...

    Mel xox

  2. Thanks hon, have to admit, it is pretty intriguing. The dinner is on the 7th May so will let you know

    Hope all good in your world


  3. You've got to go! Take the next day off and make sure you paaarty too! Take some pictures please x

  4. Just booked my flight so looks like I am going. Will defo put my party pants on and hope my already hopeless photo-taking ability isn't further impaired by one too many glass of bubbles!

    Btw, belated happy birthday. Hope London has her spring clothes on?
