Dave’s work

now for the next EXCITING instalment that you have all been waiting for! Click on the highlighted text for the pre-recorded PDF file. DAVE’S WORK.  Thank you for all the comments and e-mails – they are a breath of fresh air.  Now that we have reasonably reliable internet connection we feel less cut off from our friends and relatives. We received parcels last week – very generously sized- for which we were very grateful -but postage is expensive so we cannot and do not expect large items! I’m sure I can survive without my porridge oats – brown rice makes not a bad substitute! We are nearly half way to our first overseas break – at the end of September – and will have to decide where to go – back to NZ sounds very attractive to me (Dave)at the moment! We are entitled to nearly three weeks off.  Take care!

My first attempt at photo download – Robert kindly did the others off a CD. We get weekly access to the VSA satellite modem  for free and I will try some more in the future – not too many – its a bit slow for big files

    hi Guys
    Great to read about your activities. SOunds a challenge Dave- I have sent your link to Richard doing 3rd year Environmental Civil- nothing like the reality after the lectures. Your house looks quite pleasant and good that so much fruit/veg and fish available .
    We are still very wet here and over 100 houses still not habitable post floods. Lots of very stressed patients out of homes. What are you up too during the days Rosie??

    Excellent full report of a challenging situation, Dave; it must be v frustrating to know of so many essential tasks for which the planning and eventual execution is such a battle in every way. What of Rosie at this point in time? If you are feeling a bit low in spirit, how is Rosie?

    More rain here so a bit dismal for the recently flooded homes; we feel grateful to be warm and high and dry.

  3. Hi Dave and Rosemary,

    Finally got round to reading your blog (the online bits). I am sure that while you are being tested from time to time, you are both flourishing in your new environment and adventure. What can I say?

    Well,when Dave and Rosemary decided to leave South Africa for New Zealand many years ago, I was not surprised, as I was aware of their social conscience, love of nature and roughing it a bit every now and then. So I can honestly say that it did not come as a surprise when I heard that they were setting of again in in order to satisfy these needs.

    Keep well and do return, to NZ that is, as I would like to visit again in the future and don’t think I will make it to Bougainvillea.
