Recently Papakura High School had the 60th Reunion, it was opened in 1954, and Jeanette and I were what are called “Foundation Pupils” and have been friends ever since,. We so miss our dearest Jocelyn, who passed away when in her 20’ s . I was not able to be there, too far to travel, and Hugh still not 100% and better to be at home for a while yet. I have heard of the ones who did attend, the celebrations, how the school has altered since our days there.Can you see me? All will be told tomorrow. Jocelyn is on the far right hand side, third row from top , Jeanette 3rd from the left in the same row.
Today I took my Bernina to the wonderful fix-it man in Levin. Mr S. He has worked a miracle, and it is running so smoothly now. I took Mrs S some quinces, we have them in a huge numbers. Hugh and I went further South to Otaki, the small town of “Outlet Shops”!! Glorious looking, some shopping, and back to collect the weighty machine. When we left…Mrs S gave me a jar of quince jam. the most lovely gift for Easter.
Easter Greetings to you all, enjoy the days of maybe a public holiday, fine weather, family visits, and friendships with each-other across the miles and kilometres
Quotation of the day, from Lao Tzu
“Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.”
