Update from Australia

I talked to my lovely hubby last night. He starts his new job today.
He has been busy trying to figure out how everything works. He said even though it's only Australia (we're in New Zealand), everything is very different. He was stressing out a bit yesterday because he didn't know where to go to do what he needed to. So he was quite frustrated. I was telling him, these things take time. And we will be there in 12 sleeps! I really can't wait, because I just want to get there and get settled.
So hubby already started shopping! He bought a car, a lounge suite, a fridge, beds for the kids, and a mattress for us. He will get a washing machine and try to get table and chairs. He got a tv for free. So things are starting to come along, slowly... despite the lack of funds. Hehe. I told him to only get the essentials for now and when I get there, I will use my super creative crafty self to make our new house, our new home!
On a side note - it is FREEZING here. It is seriously cold and I am so thankful for fireplaces! And heat pumps. And socks. And scarves. And hot soup. You get the idea.
"A happy heart is a good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries the bones"
Proverbs 17:22


  1. Glad to hear your hubby is getting your new home organised! How exciting a prospect!
