This is the happy face of a man who is about to begin an early retirement.
I went to resign yesterday but the principal was away. This morning when I tried to do the same he was busy organising the school production. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get an opportunity.
Renting the house proved easier than we thought. Around 50 people were interested in the property. Many seemed to be potentially excellent tenants with outstanding references. One offered to pay a years rent up front.
A lady, Jay, from Masterton rang and asked if she could view the property earlier than the proposed weekend we had set aside for viewing. We agreed. So she flew to Nelson the following Monday and liked the place. And we liked her. So Jay and her dog Bentley, are soon to be our new tenants.
