The trip down didn't quite go as planned - we had car trouble barely an hour out of Red Dirt Central and promptly turned right around. Hubby's work arranged plane tickets for the kids and I and we flew out the next day (I was getting out of that place one way or another!) while Hubby waited for parts to arrive for the car. A lack of mechanics in town was problematic until a friend called in a favour and help arrived. Hubby finally got on the road on Saturday and we moved into our temporary home on Tuesday.
We have unpacked as much as is being unpacked and set up the parts of they house we are using. The kids are sharing a room which is ... um... interesting. There will be stories on that in days to come. They also have a playroom, which they loved for a day and have totally ignored since then. I guess it really is a case of out of sight, out of mind! The house is miles bigger than what we had up in Red Dirt and the kids keep wandering into the wrong room and getting themselves lost which is always good for a giggle. The living area is fabulous and I LOVE it, while the bedrooms are tiny and the bathrooms are comically small. Put it this way - you can't open the door to our bathroom if someone is in there for fear you'll knock them out!
I have lots more to tell but will save it for later. Now I'm off to check blogs, read emails and catch up on all the news.
