Cemeteries, history

Time Flies…

Hello Everyone,

It’s been a long. long time since I last created a blog post, I admit to relying too much on Facebook to engage of late. But, hear me out, I’ve been a very busy girl. In the 3 years since my last post (yes, 3 years) I have earned myself a degree in history. A bit of a mid-like crisis, methinks.

So, I haven’t been wasting my time! And, glutton for punishment that I am, I start a Masters degree (history, of course) in two week’s time. My mid-life thesis, perhaps?

However, I will begin more cemetery trips soon, and there are a few to choose from. I thought I would ask you if you had a rural Canterbury cemetery that you wanted me to visit. If you do, drop me a line at moorfnz@gmail.com or post on my Facebook Page and I’ll see what I can do.

Ngā mihi
