Flowering cherry trees - the main street is beautiful in spring time.
Regent Cinema – a wonderful collection of movie memorabilia and so handy that I can catch a movie if I leave home 5 minutes before it starts.
Teasdale Street – my home in a tranquil spot yet only a short walk to the main street.
Te Awamutu Library – helpful staff and crammed with books (literally crammed with books, put some money into more space for this great community resource please Waipa District Council).
Mandarins – masses of delicious, juicy fruit from the tree in my garden.
Waikato weather – lovely warm summers.
Puahue countryside – enjoying the scenery and changing seasons as I drive to work.
Te Awamutu Squash Club – great facilities, friendly members, good times.

My year of study is almost complete, I'm finishing off the final paper during the summer semester. In two weeks I start a new job in a new city at a new school. Well the job and the school are brand new but the city has been around for a while, it's just new for me. I'll be the library based teacher at Amesbury School in Churton Park, Wellington. The school opens for the first time on February 1st 2012 and I expect it will be both exciting and challenging to be a foundation teacher at an innovative new school.
Happy New Year and Best Wishes for 2012.
