This is a blessed spot, spoilt only by the people, in the central North Island of NZ.
|The last two months have been a nightmare and still not over. I have not been able to keep blog contributions going. My better half had a lump on her back that was melanoma or cancerous. Fortunately after it was cut out and a scan no further cancer was found. My sonds drug use finally reached the tipping point a few weeks ago. He buys drugs and cant pay for them as he cannot hold down a job. Then he gets beaten up or has stuff like his shoes taken. The tipping point was earlier this week when 3 heavies arrived at my house when my son was out and claimed he owed them money so they wanted to take my motorbike. I told them f...k off and I was so angry they are lucky they were not hurt. I have taken to carrying weapons with me at all times and this drug stuff has been stressful. They left after I called the cops even though the cops never showed up. I wanted to inflict great violence and know that I have to calm down. On a positive my son has now started rehab so lets see how it goes. He has been an addict for 10 years or so and maybe we were wrong to turn mostly a blind eye. Wife and I are not in a good place now and we have installed security cameras etc.plus left weapons strategically placed hidden round the yard. Hoping it gets better.|
