We are now a little more settled here in NZ (they say that n, zed). After buying our car last week we were able to find a suitable place to live, in Lincoln, just a mile away from blue's school. It is a sleepy little town, but has everything you need (not everything you want). There is a post office, a butcher, a hardware store, a grocery store, 2-3 hair salons, 2 cafes, a library, a gas station, oh, and lawn bowling. I don't think we will stay here for the entirety of our visit. But in order to for us to be able to afford higher rent/the commute, I will need to be employed/bringing in some bacon.
We haven't gotten the chance to take a lot of photos yet, but the one above is our little car and the port hills to our east in the background.
It is really beautiful here. We live in a very flat, agricultural part of the country. There are lots of sheep, deer, horses, and crops to be seen, all divided by beautiful hedgerows. I will put up some pics of our place and some of the local sites on flickr for your viewing pleasure.
We also have a phone and the internet now so I should be better at staying connected with everyone back home... hopefully. :D
