We are now all moved in and settled in our new place and love it!
As well as moving in last week we also became the proud owners of a 1997 VW Golf! We have inherited a bit of a boy racer car as one of the previous owners put on an interesting exhaust that changes the sound quite a lot, but it is a good little run around and is perfect for our needs.
Sunday was the first day since arriving in NZ that we really felt that we could relax and not have to be rushing around doing stuff that needed doing. The morning was spent doing a 4km run – Gerald has talked me into doing the ‘Round the Bays’ 8km fun run along with 70,000 others so we started our training.
After the run we drove the short distance of 3km to the top of Mount Eden to see the views over Auckland. It was a nice clear day so we got to see everything including our new place! I've circled it in red....
Today I had good news – my visa has been approved (so thanks again for all the testimonials!) and I can start work immediately – well, when the agencies give me some!!!
Gerald had an interview this morning that seemed to go well, they are short listing for round 2 next week. He had an interview yesterday and has got through to the 2nd round of those and has his interview on Monday so fingers crossed!
Today we will be off for our third run, I was much better on Wednesday, didn’t need to stop til about 2km had passed! There is hope for me yet!!
That’s all for now!
