Only 5 weeks to go! Today was my last day at school, it has been a joy to teach at Marist College and I am grateful for the year’s leave. My classroom is empty and bare, the farewells have been said and the laptop and keys are handed in. It is quite liberating. Mike, however, will work until January 9th.
We have sold our cars, they went on the market last Saturday and by Tuesday they were both sold! Long story short, we still have transport until we leave. Saturday also saw round one of the inoculations! More painful on the wallet than in the arm. We have also started packing up the house. Quite a few people have commented on our bravery but what we are doing doesn’t seem scary, it seems a mix of natural and necessary, the questions of what will happen and how this experience will change us is exciting.
