New House! Bad Bloggers!

Well, it's been a while and we have no other excuse other than the fact we have been trying to get our heads around the NZ house buying system and managed to buy ourselves a house in the process!

Here's a picture of the front....'s pretty cool how there are enough trees that you can't see much of it from the road. The lounge (at the front of the house) has floor to ceiling windows so it will lovely, light and airy!

We are so chuffed with it. It has 3 bedrooms, a garage and fairly big front and back gardens. It's already fully fenced (which means no worries before I can get a dog!) and at the end of a cul-de-sac so should be fairly quiet.

So we move in on the Thursday before Easter (13th of April) and will get some more photos up once we are in.

Now we have the momentous task of furnishing the place - eeeek! This is where we start to wonder how good an idea it was to sell all our furniture when we sold up in Glasgow! Oh well, it's too bad, we did and now we have to shop for everything. We already got some couches and bedroom furniture on order and have spent some time this weekend pricing fridge/freezers, washing machines and tumble dryers. Another bonus of the house is the stove and hob are fitted and it also comes with a dishwasher!

Wow, no more dishes! How many times do you think I will end up washing up before I remember we have one? !

So now we have to get the belongings we do have here in NZ packed up. And hire ourselves a van to shift the 2 bookcases and beanbag we own!
