It’s been cold and rainy today, so we voted for having a snuggle in, and watching movies. We ended up watching “Blended”, which was very very funny; and “The Other Woman”, which has its moments of humour, but was a bit slow all in all. Definitely recommend “Blended” though! 🙂 Now we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention something about realestate! So here is the name for our upcoming NZ home 🙂 We’ll be making a nice carved Maori sign of it for the front entry arch.
This time last year, we got married (again), here in NZ. So today started slowly, with coffee and toast. We sat around watching tele in our jammies, until it was time to get ready to go to lunch. We’d booked the same table at Sally’s that we had last year for our reception 🙂 Enjoyed a lovely feed of fish & chips, and oysters kilpatrick. Was pretty sweet, as they’d run out of oysters, and specially went out and sourced some from the oyster farm, just for US!! It seems we’ve become pretty well known around Russell. “The Girls” are a ‘notorious’ topic and sight, about the town lol 🙂…
Today was busy. We went to Whangarei to a number of house yards (basically second-hand houses) and we ended up finding one we luuurve. Its initial asking price is a bit steep. It’s worth every cent of what they’re asking, but we just don’t happen to have quite that much in the budget right now tho….but we’ll be trying to for it!! A definite diamond in the rough!!
Did a couple of house inspections today. We really like 1 particular house, and one vacant section. Both have exquisite views of the marina and bay. Now if we could just find some money…
Common sense quilting!
Today we’ve spent a good portion of the day realestate hunting. We’ve been to three open homes, had a look at about 8 blocks of land (one of which we realllly like!), and this evening we’re looking through dozens of ‘recycled’ homes online, with the plan to go see those we like. Today’s been a good day, and we’ve had a lovely time, with the planning and dreaming of possibilities…. Who wouldn’t want to live here!!
This is our front yard for the next fortnight. Not too shabby eh 🙂
A strange photo-capture, but the sea and the breeze is already lightening our hearts & minds…
And so it begins. Oh how we love being out of contact, and off the radar 🙂
That look of love – yup, definitely – if there’s one thing that’s undoubtable about us, is that we love each other like crazy!! New Zealand 2013
