At a crossroads...


Yesterday we were back in my home town of Mangawhai. We are standing at a crossroads seeing which way life is going to take us. We missed out on a rental property we applied for up here so the other half had a chat to his boss who said there is much more work for him in Mangawhai so we then applied for a property there which we looked at today. Hopefully we will hear back today or tomorrow.

We drove around a few places, visited my parents and stopped at one of the boat ramps where this pontoon is. The area has changed a lot. There are way more houses and subdivisions and more businesses since I left there 4 years ago when I moved to Tauranga and if our move goes ahead I possibly have a job to go to thanks to me walking into one of the local shops. Will keep you posted...

Linking up with Our World Tuesday and My Corner of the World.

oh really? Yes the Brown family in mangawhai are very well known, I use to go to a church in the village and the pastor was Peter Brown who was a member of this family. He use to own the family homestead.

Good luck with that, never had the problem of being without a job till I retired

I wish you good luck on getting a local job. So much more pleasant than commuting.

On the spot

I've noticed all around the West Coast these little dairies/shops are dotted in some of the smaller towns. Can't call them a Four Sq...
