In the last 9 years we have lived in 6 houses and just 2 cities. We have lived in Hamilton and the same house for almost 7 years now. I have had 3 cars (a Mondeo, a Falcon S/W and my Commodore VX) and Karina has had 3 cars (Civic, Laser and the Tractor). I have held down 6 jobs, with my longest the one I am in now. They were CourierPost Hamilton Ops Mgr, then CourierPost Wellington Branch Mgr, then CourierPost Central Regional Mgr, then CourierPost Nat Ops/Commerical Mgr, then ELG Group Regional Mgr, then Director/General Dogs Body at Agoge Limited.
Karina and I have stayed in Kaitaia, Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Whitianga, Whangamata, Waihi Beach, Tauranga, Rotorua, Gisborne, Taupo, New Plymouth, Napier, Palmerston Nth, Masterton, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, Fox Glacier, Queenstown, Ashburton, Kaikoura, Port Douglas (Aust) and Rarotonga (Cook Islands).
In the last nine years, we have had 3 children, Kyla, Talia and Jayden.
Nine years ago today, Alf started the day without broken ribs, and I started the day single. Nine years ago today I ended the day married to my wife Karina. On reflection we have done heaps and seen heaps and settled heaps. It is a blessing to have the memories and to have had the experiences I have had, with an awesome and caring and compassionate and forgiving and loving women and wife.
Thanks Karina for putting up with me for 9 years!!
