October 2013 – Its been so long…..

I have posted nothing here for so long, and it was really the prompting of others that have led me to post here now.

I have actually set up a new blog space but it is not yet really open for business – I’m still trying to make it all work and make it do the things I want it to do.  I set up a new one because it was supposed to be easier to manipulate but either I am getting so old that I cannot cope with new things, or remember the things I am supposed to do to make it work, or its actually a whole lot harder than here,  but I shall preserver a little longer and see how it goes.

I elected to set up a new site because I was leaving Korea and it seemed silly to have a site called a Kiwi in Korea if this Kiwi wasn’t there any more.  I am sure that I could have just changed the blog name, but sadly I didn’t think that one through too clearly at the time…..

I am also now following a couple of WordPress sites that are really worth a look at if you,  like me,  like to read so I will post those links and your visit here wont have been a wasted effort.

Seumas Gallacher is a crime thriller writer, in the main, but he has also written a hilarious book called  The Bloggers Guide to Absolutely Nothing  ( the link to Amazon for that one  – The Blogger’s Guide to Absolutely Nothing ) his web site address is;


The other one I would like to mention is Martin Lake who writes Historical Fiction and Literature, his blog address is


I have only read excerpts from his books so far, but as soon as I am out of this wee backwater and can download what I like again my Kindle will be overflowing with great things to read.  The excerpts were so great that I just can’t wait to be able to read the whole thing…

  2. Thank you for visiting my pages and leaving complimentary comments on my enamel art (some call it alchemy) and Ailsa’s ceramics (Ailsa lives just half a mile away in this Yorkshire village). I’m involved with a ‘Coursera’ free course on the study of historical fiction just now – I hope it helps bring focus to my own novel in progress (it has stalled lately).
    Best wishes for you return to New Zealand – a lovely country, I can still ‘see’ the Royal Albatrosses coming home to their headland.
