Finally we'll be moving into our own place tommorow at about midday. So hopefully we'll get a bit of normality of family life back.

I can't believe we've got so many belongings already and l have to give myself credit in the fact l've managed with a suitcase of clothes for 10

Claire seems to be happier at school and we havent had any tears of late so thats good, Laura has slipped straight into the ozzie way and Luke goes for his job training on Saturday and then he'll meet more people to socialize with.

We may not have internet to begin with at the new house but l'm hoping it wont be too long.

I LOOK UP TO YOU OH GREAT ONE.......... Claire even insisted on having her hair done the same as Carla's for our meeting...........her face says it all.

We drove up to where Andy and Carla live yesterday and it was soooooo good to see them - we shared a BBQ with them and their friends who they are staying with, Pete and Sindy and their children - what a friendly bunch.
Check out the rainbow arced over me and Carla - rainbows have been wonderful here; and a constant reminder of who's in charge.
It was great to catch up with Carla and compare notes...
We shared the sad news of Meg from Pats blog and l was glad to be with people who felt the same.
Couldn't quite get my head around the fact that we were on the other side of the world and had met up.
Thanks Carla and Andy for a lovely afternoon.

Sorry Helen.......yes it was a long time finding a house but finally we got in just in time and managed to secure this one.
Nothing like what we would normally buy but we did say we were coming here to see changes........don't know that it will feel normal for some time not getting up thinking l've got to move a pile of bricks or push a wheelbarrow.....LOL; and it will be lovely to see Andy take it a bit easier.
Now for the details as l was a bit vague on the last post; it has four beds a large rumpus upstairs and not quite a year old and a flat block of land unusual in the hills......and room for a pool should we decide to have one more piccys soon.
