13.10.1957 We are still in Christchurch waiting to get our contract signed for the purchase of the Queenstown Property. It is a store business & rather galling as we are anxious to get started down there. We feel that we cant do very much in the way of purchases in case there is some hitch & it does not go through. Margaret & Ron got Stuart fixed up as a Boarder at one of the best schools in NZ - Waitaki School near Oamaru. For the time being Jane will go to the State School at Queenstown. We have seen the satellite and rocket quite clearly most evenings here bout 8pm. Every day now is fine and sunny but the winds here in Christchurch are a nuisance. It is flat from here to the Coast with nothing to break the wind & they seem to get it all the time. We read in the papers here about the promenade at Llandudno being damaged in the gales. You have been unlucky with the weather. We ae both well & send all our love
