Our New Home!
I never thought I would be excitied about our new home but I am. It has 2 bedrooms and smells of mould and yuck but we have installed many air freshners and they almost cover the smell! We have pots and pans with handles and I have a red jug and for those of you who know me well you will understand why I am so excited about that! It is funny how ordinary things at home are so precious here. The kids have a yard to run around in and it is $5 in a taxi to town. We have no TV but don't really care. We will have to talk to each other instead I guess!
I bought a lavalava thing today so look like a local - a very white local but at least I'm trying. We went into town to the mall - I already have a favourite coffee shop! That is also very exciting!
Today the kids saw birds - no wait bats flying around outside. Not something we see at home. They were more excitied than I they would be. The kids are excited about furniture - at one stage they thought they were having to share a bed! We have that sorted.
Thank you to all those who have prayed for this. It really is a blessing. I am learning everyday to appreciate the small things in life and I am realising that while in NZ we are not 'rich' people, compared to the rest of the world we are so wealthy in every way.
