The Countrification of Us. Part 3.

If you're popping over to my blog & aren't up to speed yet, Part 1 and Part 2 are here and here.

Part 3 sees us moving into the rental house that is to be our home for at least the next 6 months. It's been empty and for sale & the owners have agreed to take it off the market for a 6 month lease, then they will review if they want to renew our lease or put it back on the market. We'd probably like to stay put for 12 - 18 months, until we (hopefully) are in a position to buy, but we'll just have to see what happens.

The removalists unpack to a flat surface. Meaning bench top or dining table. They unpacked and left as I had nothing more I needed them to do. THIS is the point at which I felt overwhelmed. If I didn't have 3 kids watching me, I would have cried. I just didn't know where to start.

Walking distance to the primary school= bonus. High school bus stop is at the primary school = double bonus. Both preschools in town have long waiting lists = bummer. Think we will have to check out playgroup sooner rather than later.

Streets that are three times the width that we are used to. With trees growing down the middle, just like proper avenues. Can't wait for springtime, to see all the colours.

Latest good news - Conservatorium of Music runs preschool music classes at the primary school - Yay!

Tae Kwon Do for both the boys located 100m down the road at another school's hall. Double Yay!!!!

Things have a way of falling into place.

What's fallen into place for you lately?
