All About Jan

// September 13th, 2005 // Life, People

Jan ModelsJan is the hidden woman behind the blog – she who knows of the blog but never bloody reads it – she who refuses point blank to ever post anything on it herself – she who spends all her internet time at Trade Me.

Despite this, her presence hangs over every word like an invisible filmy haze of Jan-ness. Thus here is an update all about Jan. I did invite Jan herself to compose it but she was reluctant to dip her toe into the puddle of Jemsweb.

Jan’s big news is that she has stopped smoking for just over a week now! Except for one drunken cigarette at my dad’s tablewarming party. Jan does miss some things about Sydney:

  • our Sydney friends and family
  • the cheap feta
  • the cheap electricity
  • turkish bread
  • the car wash place in Mascot

But she is really loving Wellington and being back in New Zealand. I’ve often heard her say “it just feels like home”.

Jan is glad that I’m having the next baby, but a little bit sad as well. She thinks her body is ready for another one. She would be really angry at me if I had twins, and would probably go back to work and make me look after them!

Jan works very hard looking after the two ratbags day in and day out. She is a very caring and supportive mum. She’s also thinking a bit about what she’d like to do work-wise when they get a bit older. At the moment she wants to be a kindy teacher!

Jan is currently into the following tv:

At the moment, Jan is reading Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything. And she’s enjoying the music of the Phoenix Foundation and Fat Freddy’s Drop.

This has been All About Jan. According to Emily.
