I am Packing. But before I get into talking about packing, I’m going to admit something a bit crazy to you. I’ve always had (well, since Crochet with Raymond began) a strange ambition to see Raymond appear on someone else’s blog. (A photo taken by them, not downloaded from my blog) I hinted about it once to a blogger but no such luck, so you can imagine my surprise this morning when I discovered this post written totally unprompted by me! I can now tick off that life goal and you can go and visit Raymond at Kiwi and Kumara!
So as I’ve told you, I’m moving. Not just moving, I’m seriously moving. For those of you unfamiliar with New Zealand geography, we live in Wellington which is at the very bottom of the North Island and in 10 days we are moving to the very top of the North Island to a very lovely place called Whangarei. (pronounced Fung-a-ray)
KB and I have lived there before which is why we want to go back, so I got a wonderful job offer, we found a house and it’s all happening! It was a huge decision to make being that we will be an 11 hour drive away from my amazing Mum, my darling little niece Pixie and of course the rest of my very cool family, 11 hours away from my friends and living in a city with no LYS. Yes, you read correctly, no LYS. It does however have a much warmer climate, beautiful golden sand beaches, amazing native bush, my fairy god daughter and her wonderful family and a much slower paced lifestyle we need very much. If anyone reading my blog lives in Whangarei, leave me a comment because I need to find some knitters to knit with!
So I’ve been packing a lot and taking apart our life for the last two and a half years and it’s kind of hard. I love our little home and the space we have created together but am reminding myself that we have created many beautiful spaces to live in and will create many in the future. KB took some photos of our home for the landlords to advertise it, and as I only show little peeks of my home on here, I thought as we are leaving, I’ll post these pictures so I can look back on them and remember this little patch of my life. I hope you enjoy this little peek into my crochet and crystal filled life! Note, there is no TV!
And last but certainly not least! My chair
The flat is now a mess of boxes and stuff… I’m drowning in stuff! It is no longer a colourful sunshine filled place, and I’m dreaming of our new house we will be moving into in 12 days!
I’m off, I have to go and clean out some cupboards,
wishing you a beautiful day,
love Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
