What have we been up to for the last couple of weeks? We have not vanished into Middle Earth...we are living in a field between Cromwell and Wanaka on the South Island, so internet access is a bit more tricky!
We are staying with our old friends Dean and Diana, who are in the middle of building a restaurant on a piece of land they recently bought. They are opening on Boxing Day and there is lots of work to be done, so it has been a bit like an episode of Grand Designs! David is loving using the tractor and the ride on mower and I getting better with the circular saw.
The only downside is that the location is very isolated and it was pretty impractical to drive the motorhome into town each day, so we have bought a little runaround for me and a bike for David. Now that we can get to town more easily we have joined the library and have been to the local swimming pool and playparks.
We are planning to stay here until early January and then head up to the North Island for four weeks.
Better go...the boys are rampaging around the library as I type...
