Verse of The Day
“I a koutou mahi katoa kaua te amuamu, te tautohetohe; Kia kore ai koutou e whaikupuria, kia tapatahi ai, he tamariki kohakore na te Atua, i waenganui o te whakatupuranga tutu, parori ke, kei roto nei koutou i a ratou e tiaho ana hei rama i te ao; Kia mau pu ki te kupu o te ora; kia hari ai ahau a te ra o te Karaiti, kihai ahau i oma noa, kihai i mahi noa.” (Philippians 2:14-16)

One Tree Point

Really retired now - all the others have gone back to school and I'm fancy free. I will have to relieve though - to my horror a school which started early rang me two weeks ago for a day's work. I couldn't go because I just wasn't ready and anyway it was the day we got the offer on our house. Since then no one's rung and I must say I'm pleased. I will have to break the teaching ice all over again when I get my first relieving gig.

I don't miss teaching at all. I'd like our house to sell this week and then spend a month packing up and sorting out and then relieving when we get to Whangarei.

...a niece in law who lives in the beautiful coastal community of Ngunguru said that there is a great retirement village there with people in the 50 and 60s and it's independent living of course - very close to the harbour/river.

So another landmark on the old retirement journey was the first offer on our house. It was low but just adequate and conditional on the sale of HIS house in an auction in two week's time. The two weeks are now very nearly up and the day after tomorrow we will know our fate.
