After the misery of the Northern winter and all of those storms, it's wonderful to be here in New Zealand beginning our new life.Yes I know, Autumn is on the way and soon enough I'll be in another winter.
Meanwhile.... Blue skies!
We're staying with Tony's brother and sister in law and their family. The house is beautiful.
With a lovely secluded garden to the rear.
It would seem that we have Manx neighbours, just a few doors up the road! I know you can't really see it here, but that red smear is my national flag!
We didn't meet them yet.
Tony and Joe both have job interviews in the next couple of days.
I'm still looking.
Getting here was a very long journey, but we arrived remarkably well adjusted and with very little jet lag.
We've been busy catching up with family and friends, and I've had my first crafty encounter! A family friend was here over the weekend, she spotted my crochet and we spent the next couple of hours talking craft and going back through my blog looking at my creations. She was inspired and went off to find her crochet hook and some yarn, in order to create her own chop suey style blanket.
Time to go play with my own hook!
