Monday 20th April 2015………sorting out day!!!!

As most of you know I am taking a cruise to New Zealand in September and then spend the winter months there…. below is the route of the cruise I had put a deposit on…it is a 28 day cruise and actually finishes in Sydney so really only a 24 day cruise…I will not divulge the price but it was expensive and the single supplement is what jacks the price up….



Today I spent a bit of time on the Internet and I came across this cruise which is 39 days with lot more stops and this one finishes up in New Zealand and the funny thing is the price is exactly the same so it seems to me I would be better off cancelling my first cruise and get my deposit money back and book this new cruise..the other great advantage is that it starts in Vancouver so I could leave Little  Bluey in Nanaimo and I do not have to find my way to San Francisco…I am going to think on it a couple of days before I do anything…

This evening I went back to my English class and it was great to see my students again this is the last week for them before they graduate….I have my friend Carol coming to class on Wednesday…Carol is an artist and an art teacher and she is going to teach them how to draw…it will be a great last class and then Thursday night the other teachers Maggie and Giff and I are going to treat them all to diner and to honor their graduation and then on Saturday evening at the school is their formal graduation……

Tonight we were all talking about the last two weeks and we were all thrilled when one of my students Claudia shared with us all that she is expecting her first child…how sweet!!!

Just watched a great hockey game and now heading to bed…

Yashi Kochi!!!
