I'm back in Motueka at Hillside Orchards. Had I originally been able to get here from Nelson, things probably would be different. I went to Blenheim to work for a Viticulture contractor who turned out to be probably the worst boss I've ever had. He wasn't that bad, but he lied a lot and most of the time everyone just complained about him. Not a good sign on your first day of work. The work itself was extremely easy, but I was making only a little money compared to what I made in Mot and there was a 10pm curfew at the Motor Camp. So I was in Blenheim for a week.

On Sunday the 13th we went to Ocean Bay and I went with Mogues to dive for a couple of Paua. To make a long story short, my mp3 player is done for. I still haven't gotten a response from the company to see what can be done, but I'm hoping my pictures can be salvaged from the hard drive.

Once again there's nothing I can really do about it. I did see the 60GB iPod Photo's in a store, so maybe I'd pick one up when the new camera arrives. I'd still be without music. Driving is going to be quite a task from now on. I used to be able to go anywhere and put anything (of 4,000 songs) on that I wanted to listen to. However I will probably be picking up Frances the Mute and definitely With Teeth within the near future.

The majority of the next two weeks seems like it will be me laying around. There isn't much work on the orchard and the pick is tough right now so I told Shane that I'd hold off until after the break (after Easter roughly). Basically I'll have to pay for petrol and food until then which won't be a big deal. A few trips to Kaiteriteri will probably be in the plans also. I could end up doing a tramp or two with James (I met in Seacliff, currently in Blenheim) or Ollie and Mike might be interested (the guys still at the orchard).

Anyway, those are the plans for the next couple of weeks. My thoughts on my return to the States have varied quite a bit recently. Of course I'm not going to tell you what they are since then certain people would be attached to that date, which will most likely change.
