Labour Weekend 2009, we went to Rotorua for Ryans 13th birthday so he could do the Bungy and we could do other stuff like Mountain biking, White water rafting, Luge etc. While we were away the purchase of our new house went through. We had to hit up friends for email access and fax machines to complete the sale in between all the exciting stuff we did during the day. We got back utterly exhausted (as is often the way here, go away for a weekend end up doing lots of stuff, not resting!)
I was pretty happy in this pic even though I had a sore arse from the mountain biking.
I'm happier now though, Phil has a great new job, (he was made redundant last year so we had a few months of uncertainty).
We have a great new house, bigger, sea views, more comfortable and more 'us' than the last place was. We seem to have less money though, maybe 'cos we keep spending it on fripperies like foundations, re-piling, retaining walls, sorting out the leaky roof or the rotten floors. Seriously, its an awesome house. I don't have a photo of me now - so you can't spot the extra happy fat I've gained! well, that is going slowly too, another reason to be happier than before.
