Settling in

We're into our second week here in NZ. Over the weekend we went for a drive around. We took DS Joe up to the lakes. It was a beautiful day. Mount Cook showed her top for once.
Joe enjoyed the look around and was especially pleased to see yachts skipping along in the waters. 
At Tekapo we were watched by this chap. He sat up there for a while before taking off in search of a snack!
Tony has a job already and will start on Monday. This week has been taken up so far with purchasing items we will need when we move into our rental place in a couple of weeks time. Yes, we have signed up for a rental place. We'll be making do, for a couple of months until our container arrives.
Very little crafting has taken place.

Glad to see you got a day where Mt Cook was showing through, love your pic. Enjoy the rental, it will be nice to have your own space again(guess it will be even happier when all your crafty goodies turn up).

How exciting, something new almost every day. And then it will seem like Christmas when your things arrive.

All sounds like good progress. Well done on the job Tony.

So pleased you enjoyed your jaunt around Mt Cook and Tekapo. I adore Tekapo and could just sit in a chair in the sun and take it all in down there. So very peaceful.
How exciting that Tony has got a job. Everything seems to be falling into place for you. Long may it continue.
