The dawning of Spring...............

After a long cold wet winter. Today dawns bright and sunny and the birds are all singing. The last few months of slips and floods are becoming forgotten apart from those that were hit badly. Derek has the garden almost sorted and the house is in an organised chaos of boxes and boxes ready for our move to the UK.
Last weekend I caught up with my friends of long ago over a long lunch and we made big promises to stay in touch from one side of the world to the other. This weekend we are travelling through to Otaki (minus caravan) for a farewell dinner with other members of the Heretaunga caravan Club. Our calendar is full at the moment and each weekend is fully booked catching up with everyone before we leave.
It is hard to believe that we have finally resigned our jobs and head forth into the unknown. Rather scary as it is a complete new life. We have not burned our bridges and have a home to come back to eventually, as my son Richard is looking after our home whilst we are away.
We are both looking forward to our life aboard Gypsy Rover.
