As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I left the Day Job, and am about to re-enter study.
But, for the last month and a half, we've been in Limbo. We sent our stuff ahead of us, and have been spending time with my husbands family in Hamilton before heading down to Timaru.
We were going to take both down of our cats, but our older one, Connery, has improved so much (he was extremely skittish and shy and scared of everything - we think it my have been the stress of living on a main road in Auckland) while we've been here that he will be staying with the In Laws. We feel that it would be unfair on him to move again and he loves it here (also, my Father In Law is besotted with Connery - his "black and white"). George however, will be making the trip with us. He is not going to enjoy it.
We had intended to be in Timaru already, actually - but our car has had other ideas. First it failed a WOF, and needed to get it's shocks replaced, then it started having issues. It was handling like a bucking horse.
After a new air filter, fuel filter, oil change, checking the spark plugs, and replacing the bloody carburetter, it turns out all the sodding thing needed was more transmission oil. Stupid car.
So, that's all sorted now. Our ferry tickets are booked and we're off in a couple of days.
I'm going to study business management (starting on the 20th), and take this doll making thing seriously, damnit.
The Husband is going to look for a job, and househusband in the meantime - and the Sprog is enrolled at a new school. We'll be imposing on my long-suffering mother until we can find a place of our own.
George will do important cat things I expect.
