Ok - so McDonalds Free Wifi has finally given me enough bandwidth to use this website! Just wanted to let you all know WE HAVE MOVED! Finally!
Instead of 3 rooms (including the bathroom) to play with we now have more than 10, with a huge outside deck and terraced garden! We've managed to clear most of the boxes now and have found lots of things we shipped from the UK which we had forgotten about - but happily NOTHING was broken. Amazing.
We also have a pet Kookaburra (who I've named Charlie) who sits on our decking every afternoon and lets you go up close to him. I haven't yet managed to touch him as he's a bit sheepish, but we think he may like it around here as the previous tenant had two dogs, so a dog food bowl was probably available for him (kookaburras are carnivorous).
Our internet connection and phone line gets installed on Thursday, so a full blog and photos should be do-able soon! New Zealand was amazing, and I think I have upwards of 300 photos from there! Since I can only upload 40 to an album, I may have to do a couple!
Be in touch soon...
