Waiting for ships

I thought I'd show you what our home in NZ is like. We've been here just under 2 months now and we have a few things, but we're still waiting for the ship with most of our stuff (it still seems to be on an extended cruise round China!)

It's a nice-looking house that gets the sun in the living room all day long. It's got a lawn and a small deck. It's clean and neat, but we're not sure how long we'll be here, as the rent is high and the road is noisy.

This is the living area. It's small but the floors are gorgeous. We have a sofa bed to sit on and a table that the landlady let us borrow.

The sofa bed is fine but after 6 weeks it was getting really uncomfortable, so we're now sleeping on the mattress bit on the bedroom floor. Still not great, but better! Getting up off the floor first thing on a cold morning with stiff limbs is a bit slow, but Sarah is happy with it as you can see!

And we have an office. We bought two desks and chairs and a Mac so we can do some work. Here's Martin gaming and I've been on Ravelry. Some things don't change!

The other ship in this story is the one on my stitching - and I'm happy to say this one's arrived!

I'm really pleased with my progress.


  1. Lovely work on the ship! Of course if Sarah's happy that is all that matters, isn't it.

  2. I hope your things arrive soon. You are right about the floors, they're beautiful.

  3. Hehe, I love how the "work" photo shows ravelry and gaming :)
    Lovely ship.
    Here's hoping the one with all your stuff gets there soon
