On Friday we were contacted by Elle, a reporter for the Capital Day page in the Dominion Post newspaper.
She had come across our blog and thought it would be interesting to do a story about us and our wartime rationing.
We did an interview over the phone and then met up with the photographer, Phil Reid, on Saturday morning at Arthur's Cafe. We were having brunch after Salem had a ballet master class with the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
So the story came out in this mornings paper and boy, what a day we have had.
We have had a lot of good feed back and thank you to everyone who has checked out our blog.
We also had someone from Radio New Zealand email us to do an interview with Jim Mora today.
So I did the interview over the telephone early this afternoon.
My phone kept having problems, it was like I had an old fashioned party line.
Below is a link to listen to the radio show, please excuse me as I kept saying "um" all the time, something I really hate. I think it was the shock of having to speak on the radio and everything happening so fast.
So a big sorry for that. I really hate listening to recordings myself as I don't sound like I usually do. Salem even said that it doesn't sound like me.
