So what do we do in Kumeu in the summer,
Eat and drink with good friends.
Looking at the photos I realised I should have taken more, but sometimes I just get to busy cooking, eating and drinking and I forget the camera.
Well this January was rather exciting. We had an offer for our business, which fell through, but in the meantime we got a second offer, so between January 16 and February 1st. we sold the school side of the business. Peter kept the team photography part, about 20% of our business. That will keep him busy for a couple of month at the start of the year, and 3 month during the winter.
So with the negotiation and then the clean up of the offices January was not exactly a holiday, but very exciting.
We rented one of our units to the new owner, and are still trying to rent the second one. So Peter will have to work from home. I also got stuck into cleaning up at home throwing out all those things that haven't been used for years.
I promised to keep working for the new owner for some time, doing my photography and all the Id cards we are producing for the High Schools. Well we had a lot this year, so until this week I have not noticed my semi-retired state. Have worked harder than ever. But at last, I'm getting some spare time, hence the chance to update my web-pages.
