Holiday greetings from Auckland, Aotearoa


So, it's time. The holiday season is upon us. Here in Auckland, New Zealand that means bucket and spades and Christmas, and maybe, if you are lucky, a visit from the guy with the white beard and the black boots. 

More likely, it also means a trip to see the family, and then a mad rush to get to the holiday station to rest and recuperate.

Here at McGovern Online most people are already out the door. I, along with co-director Helen Smith have a few more things to do, and then we too will slip on the catch, enter the pin code for the alarm  and head out down the stairs.

The McGovern Way
It's been a fabulous year in lots and lots of way. Once again we proved that value of the golden rule - find great clients - build really great relationships, and then carve projects out of a common sky/purpose.

2009
I know the coming year will/might/could/ be hard work for some people and some places. However, I am also convinced there is a plenty of scope for collaboration and common purpose. 

Blog lines 
We re-open our doors on the 12th January. Naturally, I will be checking in long before then.  I am also  hoping to share any bits of gold/fun/inspiration I come across. 

I wish everyone a happy holiday and a wonderful New Year when it comes!

Basically paid attention to the actual armchair hermes outlet, We had been condemned with regard to failing, absolutely no item understanding, absolutely no connection with understanding of the web like a submission product sales route. Creating your own manufacturer as well as replica christian dior aimed at your website provide you with a definite benefit as well as maintain a person close to the entrance. I've because managed to move on in order to additional company versions and also have additionally recommended other people concerning the possibilities from the web. Among the dior outlet choices which you’ll need to help to make like a bride-to-be is actually selecting your own bridal gown. Your own bridal gown ought to display your look, fake breitling as well as leeway although allowing you to appear stunning as well as really feel assured. However the mission to locate which gown may appear fairly challenging; regardless of whether attempting to collect styles for any custom dress, or even becoming pampered with regard to option whenever selecting from the replica prada handbags.
