So next Tuesday – after the long weekend – I start at Colenso.

And while there is a tinge of sadness that I won’t be with my family 24/7 after a year of us being together – a year that managed to be very special for me, despite the tragedy that caused it – I can honestly say I am hugely excited about joining the lovely fools at College Hill.

But what has made it even more exciting was discovering this instagram made but my new bunch of planning fools as a ‘welcome Rob’.

I think we’re going to get on just fine …

See you Tuesday where I am the oldest ‘new boy’ in the World.

jill and otis are fucking over the moon they get rid of you for a few hours a day. dont blame them. i couldnt do 2 hours let alone 24/7 for a fucking year. wait till they remember you have more holidays than prince andrew and you might push them over the fucking edge.

They won’t know themselves.

And Jill will be the most weirded out because from next week, after a year 24/7 together … her husband will be in an office and her son will be in a school. It must feel like being let out of prison after 20 years.

At least where being with me is concerned. We all will miss Otis while he is at school finally playing and learning with new friends.

His new school is ace. Hippy as hell. They have a real boat in the playground and the headmaster told us,

“The kids can climb the trees and if they fall out, they’ll learn not to do it so high next time”. Possibly the most NZ thing i’ve heard so far. Ha.

Someone who has just discovered this blog has just told me they really love your comments. I’ve told them to seek medical attention immediately.

Waiting is a much better than getting.
If they need reassurance, get them to call me.
