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 repatriation from Germany. He will be bringing with him his German partner and their wee family to live here in New Zealand. They need somewhere to live until they find their feet (which could take a couple of years.) This will mean that over the last few years, all of our three sons have been able to take advantage of our custom-built, double-spaced living arrangements. Something that warms the cockles of our hearts because it is exactly why we had the flat built downstairs in the first place.
