Out with the old

It is never as strange as you might seem leaving a place of work and then going back to it the very next week to continue what you were supposed to leave.

Everyone says goodbye, you get the card and (actually a very nice bottle of whisky) and off you toddle. Strange then when you return to finish what you were supposed to do that everyone keeps saying, ‘oh, I thought you’d left!’

Such is life. But leaving everything behind is not as unpleasant as it seems to start with. Bills came in today that I know I wont see paid, that at least gave me a sense of departure, but mostly it is the comforting feeling that nothing will be the same again. Comforting? Well, yes, really. The end of the end can only be described as an opportunity to begin again. New friends, new places, and no paperwork, well not much, well not the same, well more interesting paperwork anyway!

First Blog

Well, this is where it all begins. The house is found, a school is not, but will be organised soon, the college is waiting for arrival…. and still we have to sell our house and move.

So much to do and so little time, I should also be going to Iona and Camas this summer, it seems there are not enough weeks in the year, or that they are all in the same few months at any rate!
Well this is a beginning and hopefully it will become something worth reading eventually.

A Rocha

A Rocha is a Christian nature conservation organisation, our name coming from the Portuguese for “the Rock,” as the first initiative was a field study centre in Portugal. A Rocha is now a family of projects working in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North and South America, Asia and Australasia. A Rocha projects are frequently cross-cultural in character, and share a community emphasis, with a focus on science and research, practical conservation and environmental education.
