Three things that kinda made me smile on the inside | week 32 / 2021

Attitude of Gratitude

My husband and I consider ourselves very blessed. We're millionaires - not measured in the financial sense - but measured by the absolutely wonderful and amazing people whom we're able to call friends and family.

When I look at our closest friends, they're all women and men who've achieved and done inspirational things in their lives.

All have the ability to give of themselves - they're the rainbows in other people's clouds - they seem to be able to dig deeper and have a much bigger heart than I ever will.

Attitude of Gratitude #1 - inspirational friends

Others, like the Bazflyers - Barry and Sandra Payne (who also have amazingly huge hearts) are inspirational.

Back in 2019 they set a New Zealand aviation record to be the first kiwi couple to fly around the world in their single engine small aircraft.

If you're interested in aviation, you can check out their YouTube channel. If you've listened to any of my podcasts (or watched any of my videos) you may recognise the voice narrating the Bazflyers' videos.

I think you've gotta be a special kind of person to want to fly around the world in a small single-engine aircraft. It takes vision, focus, fortitude. I guess that's why Barry made the Finals in 2012 as an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year. It's just the type of man he is.

The Bazyflyers are both in their their 70s who believe age is just a number and life is for living. The following saying is on the wall in the stairwell foyer of their home:

It always kinda-makes-me-smile-on-the-inside when when Sandra asks whether we'd like to meet them for lunch. Most people drive or walk to a cafe. When Barry and Sandra ask it's because they're about to hop into ZK-BAZ (a Piper Single Engine Comanche) and fly.

ZK-BAZ is the aircraft centre back in the photo below. A beautiful aircraft that flew around the world in 2019: 50 takeoffs and landings in 50 days.

Attitude of Gratitude #2 - coffee and bone china

Okay, so I can get a bit precious when it comes to drinking tea and coffee. I don't care what anyone else says, tea definitely tastes better when it's drunk from bone china. It really does!

I wouldn't say I was a coffee snob, but given I only (usually) have one cup of coffee a day, I like to make it a good one. A very good one!

I usually drink my coffee in solitude first thing in the morning. With reverence. Mindfully. Prayerfully. It's a special time of the day for me.

I journal; reflecting back on my yesterday, giving thanks for all the good things that happened during the day and looking at how I can include a bit more of a Dolly Parton view on the not-so-good things that might've happened.

Every time I visit my mum - not nearly often enough as she's a six hour drive away - I always kinda-smile-on-the-inside because she bought me this dinky, teeny-tiny bone china cup and saucer for my morning coffee.

Attitude of Gratitude #3 - family

Today is my mum's birthday. I'm grateful for the ability to be able to spend the day with her today.

Yesterday we flew Air Chathams to the Kapiti Coast. I truly, honestly believe that this airport must be saved! But that's another post on another day.

I'm grateful my (and my in-law) family is one I'm proud of. I have two wonderful sisters who each shine and add value to the world in their own unique ways.

Hopefully, my dad has reached heaven by now, as it's been a while. May he Rest in Peace.

My mum has visions of still being able to dance and continue walking well into her 90s - her attitude very definitely kinda-makes-me-smile-on-the-inside.

I'm very grateful that we have freedom to travel in New Zealand - even though it means we have to wear a mask.

May you join the Millionaires Club so you too enjoy being blessed with time spent with inspirational people and family who love you!

The English language is constantly changing. Sometimes there are new words or abbreviations every week that send us to the dictionary.
Some of these words are so obvious they make us smile while abbreviations could have multiple meanings.
We’ve collated a few and want to share some of our findings with Funday Fridays – we hope you get to smile like we did.
If you’ve got a favourite please send it our way so we can include it in our line up.
Meanwhile, if you’re a vet clinic that’s sick of competing in the same talent pool for the best vetmed people, then let's chat. We'd love to help you stand head and shoulders above other clinics by showcasing you as an Employer of Choice!

Mixed or Production Animal Vet(s) - Wairarapa - Permanent

Gotta say we're super excited to be partnering exclusively with the team at Keinzley AgVets in the Wairarapa to find their next dream team Mixed or Production Animal Vet(s) - is that you?

Working at Keinzley AgVets isn't your usual run-o-the-mill vet clinic.

You're offered an above average - as. in. ABOVE. average. - remuneration package, opportunities (plural) for professional development (have a special interest you've dreamed about pursuing in your mixed / production animal veterinary career? then make it happen here!

Looking for mentorship? Support? Great work/life balance (lots of clinics promise that but at this clinic it happens!).

The Wairarapa is a just the right amount of distance away from several "big smokes" to make rural living everything you want it to be.

If you want to go bush - the Tararua Ranges are right on your doorstep.

Into vineyards? Then take your pick because there are award winning wineries from over 20 vineyards right on your doorstep.

"Wairarapa" means "glistening waters" - named after the region's wetlands. Although if water's your thing, you can choose from the wild west coast at Cape Palliser or the North Island's third largest lake - Lake Wairarapa.

With a population just under 50,000 it's big enough to have everything you need while being small enough to slow down, connect and make a difference.

If you're thinking of making your next move, then hit Julie South up for a confidential chat in the first instance:

"The caseload at Waikiwi, especially surgical, is very high - so there is great exposure to a wide variety of cases.

"By the end of first year out I was happily doing cystotomies, ex laps, nares widening, etc. as well as more routine surgeries."

I’ve enjoyed working with the team at Waikiwi Vets over the past four years. The staff here, both fellow vets as well as nurses and administrative staff, are warm, capable, and an asset to the practice.
As a new grad I experienced a tremendous amount of support from my senior vets, then as I have grown as a clinician I've found myself mentoring the junior vets more.
The nurses are technically capable and all round fantastic, and there is a mix of very experienced (15y+) and junior nurses. This makes the difference when it's a hectic morning and the nurses place IVs, take and run bloods and set your patient up on fluids for you.

The caseload at Waikiwi, especially surgical, is very high - so there is great exposure to a wide variety of cases. By the end of first year out I was happily doing cystotomies, ex laps, nares widening, etc. as well as more routine surgeries.
An advantage of being in Southland is that the nearest referral centre is approx. 8hr drive away, so we tackle all but the most complicated cases in-house. This includes more complicated procedures such as orthopaedics, of which our ortho vet routinely does TPLO and TTA and fracture repair - which he is more than happy to teach to the next budding ortho vet.

That’s what Dr Emma said when we asked her what working at Waikiwi Vets in Invercargill has been like as her first employer since graduating four years’ ago.

VetStaff is proud to be partnering with Invercargill’s longest-serving vet clinic – Waikiwi Vets – in the search for their next very special team-oriented veterinarians.

Living and working in Invercargill means you truly do get to experience that ever-elusive “lifeSTYLE”.

If you’re a Mixed Animal veterinarian yearning to live in a part of New Zealand that’s a rare combination of “how NZ used to be” coupled with high-tech sophistication, with work colleagues who look after each other, then this might be just what you’ve been waiting for.
As you can see from Emma’s experience, Waikiwi Vets offers a great opportunity for the right grad with the right attitude. So if you’re looking for your first job straight out of Massey, then this could be the clinic you’ve been hanging out for.

Alternatively, if you’ve got a few years’ experience under your belt and looking for your next move to a clinic that knows how to appreciate everyone who works there, then this could be just for you as well.

Waikiwi Vets is team- and client-focussed. This vet practice is a 100% totally independent non-corporate clinic that believes in old-fashioned values (family IS important), where everyone looks after each other and where support and mentorship is critical to the entire team’s continued professional development.

There aren’t many kiwi clinics that can boast being part of the local community for almost seven decades, but Waikiwi Vets can! This shows they’re obviously doing a lot right.

Waikiwi Vets is a growing, mixed 8 FTE vet clinic, that’s proud of its specialist equipment & experienced surgeons. This clinic’s vets are known for repairing cases from fractures & dislocations through to TPLOs.

If you’d like to expand your ortho surgical skills, then working with Dr David will mean that dream can come true because he’s only too keen to mentor and help develop budding surgeons.

You’d have an interesting surgical caseload in a fully equipped, lots-of-toys-clinic which includes digital radiographs and dentals. In addition, the team’s advanced ultrasound skills mean they’re happy to accept referrals. As you’ve probably realised, with the advanced skillsets on offer, it goes without saying that continued professional development plays an important part in the career development of each vet (and support team). If you’re sick of having to justify every CPD point you want to earn, then maybe it’s time for you to consider another clinic like Waikiwi Vets.

Lifestyle is important to the team as a whole. Even though the clinic is 24/7, weekends on-call are doable at one in seven, with weeknights at once/fortnight. The full team includes 8 vets, nine experienced nurses, one tech plus a dedicated FOH and support team of five.

There’s plenty on offer in Invercargill too. Invercargill (Waihōpai) is the regional capital and commercial hub of Southland. Founded in the 1850’s, today it has a population of almost 60,000 people, it’s New Zealand’s southernmost city - and one of the southernmost cities in the world.

Invercargill acts as the gateway city to wilderness areas including Stewart Island, with its Rakiura Track and Queens Park with flower displays and sporting facilities

Numerous heritage buildings give the city a charming old-world quality, while the magnificent Queens Park impresses with its sprawling 80 hectares of beautifully kept gardens, wildlife habitats, playgrounds and sports areas, including NZs first velodrome which was built in 2008.

Fondly dubbed the "City of Water and Light", because of its long summer daylight hours, frequent appearances of the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights), and the city’s position beside the Waihopai River estuary, Invercargill has plenty of character and a friendly.

Wide streets in a gridded layout make it easy to find your way around the city to enjoy the excellent cultural attractions, outstanding nature reserves and parks, and lively cafes, restaurants and bars. There’s something for the whole family in Invercargill!

If you’d like to know more about working at Waikiwi Vets, in the first instance please contact Julie South who is project managing the recruitment of these positions on behalf of Waikiwi Vets.

Julie realises that changing jobs is a pretty major decision and, if moving to Invercargill means relocating, then it’s an even bigger decision. She’s therefore happy to (confidentially) chew the fat with you and answer some of your burning questions to start with. You can contact her on 0800 483 869 or send her an email at [email protected].

If you’re an overseas vet who’d like to know more, these positions qualify for the (current) Immigration New Zealand visa requirements provided you’re able to be Registered in New Zealand as a fully-practising Veterinarian.
