When I left the UK I could only take my unopened pack of Rico Creative Cotton and I for weeks I had absolutely no idea what to do with them. Then, we purchased some terracotta pots for some fresh herbs, and a lightbulb went off in my head.

I haven't yet done a pot for the thyme. No time (har)

Overall, I’m pleased the result. I’m not really brave when it comes to using colour, nor do I have an eye for combinations, but I’m pleased with how this lot turned out.

I had to pull out a few dead basil leaves, the shame of it


Same picture, different camera

It has only been a couple of months since my exams finished, but I’m certain if I was to take my medical finals now, I’d fail them. New Zealand has provided a wonderful backdrop for what is known as the ‘post-finals brain drain’; if I’m going to lose my mind, then I’d rather it be somewhere beautiful.

I took the awesome shiny camera out for a walk around the lake. I wasn’t certain about the dials and I wanted to use it beyond the automatic settings, so after a couple of YouTube tutorials, I progressed to… creative auto!

Having spent my life in a gym on a treadmill, I never really understood the allure of outdoor running (well, you wouldn’t if your view was Brixton Prison) but I’ve taken to a spot of exercise outside since coming here. Pros: it’s very pretty and the endorphins. Cons: the exercising part


A very kind person trusted me with their beloved shiny: a Canon EOS 5D MK11. It tears strips off my own little camera, but it will take some getting used to. I went for a 3 hour walk around the lake yesterday; it was fairly overcast so the light wasn’t great. It is of course, easier to fault the weather when you’re an amateur using an alien camera.
