Clocking Out

 I have been neglecting this blog for some months. I think perhaps I should face facts and accept that it is indeed time to retire this blog (started nearly twenty years ago ...) and concentrate solely on my other blog - my website blog.  

It is with no small regret that I close shop. However, it does tie in with the stage of life I now find myself in where downsizing is the name of the game. We have moved into a smaller space (our small, separate apartment downstairs) and will refurbish our larger upstairs space ready for our son's eventual return from Germany, accompanied by his German partner and their children. They will need somewhere to live, which means that over the last few years all of our three sons in turn have been able to take advantage of our custom-built, double-spaced living arrangements. And that is exactly why we had the flat built downstairs in the first place.

For any of you who wish to remain in touch, please use THIS LINK to keep in touch through my website.

P.S. I will be returning here to the links on my side bar in order to keep reading your entries.

Sorry to see you are closing this blog Kay. We have been reading each other for very many years back to the "Chief Biscuit" days!

But I know the feeling. I stopped my blog for over a year a few years ago then came back. But blogs seem to get fewer and fewer as others desert them for more instant methods like Facebook. I find it hard to keep up my own and maybe I'll be joining you soon in the blog afterlife.

I wish you and your family well in your futures in your glorious country. Say hello from me to the Otago peninsular when you are next that way!

With Love

Mike

Hi Mike,
You are one of the (if not THE) main reasons I kept this blog puttering away for the last few years, as I felt I couldn't let you down.
I will be keeping up with your posts. I enjoyed very much the latest account of your rambles on your e-bike (fast becoming a popular mode of transport here in NZ too - especially in hilly Dunedin.) I enjoy the being able to experience vicariously, through your descriptions and photos, the countryside around your little corner of the world.
Thanks for your kind regards and I return the same to you and yours,
Love,
Kay

Hi Kay, I can't do it! I still love coming to my blog and visiting my dwindling friends here. I miss the times when I would so eagerly post a few times a week, when I'd entice my camera to share what I saw. So I'll miss you here, but I know we won't lose keeping in touch.

I love how you have planned for your boys and their families. That is lovingly brilliant. We are both so lucky to have the kinds of relationships we have with our kids. I am grateful every day.

love love kj
