August 06

Hi all,

I am just writing to let you all know that I have a new job within Recall. I will be on the 18th of September a Credit Allocation Officer. Which means that I will be looking at bank statements all day and allocating the money to different jobs. Anyway I think it will be better than what I am currently doing with far more Career opportunity.

Anyway it looks like we will be coming home to NZ in October for a certain event and having a weeks holiday at the same time. Should be good.

Things are hotting up in Brisbane, it is definately coming into summer already. Up until the beginning of this week we had 3 months of no rain. Not even a drop. Now it has been raining on and off for 3 days, which is great as it is also falling into our dams which are at an all-time low.

Alton and Liz will be here next weekend and we are going with them up to Mackay for 3 days over the weekend and sometime towards the end of the month Andrea will be coming to stay with us. So its going to be a busy month with lots of visitors and starting a new job.

We both would love to hear from you if you have anything interesting to say or even if you don't have anything interesting to say.

Hello Everyone (who reads this)

How is everyone? Mel and I are both fine, but are starting to think that maybe we will move on from Brisbane. Nothing definiate, just wanting to travel some more and see new places. Anyway so that means that we are saving hard again and trying not to spend money. It has meant quite a few boring weekends where not much has happenned except doing stuff around the house.

The house is looking a lot better than when we first arrived, although the lawn is dying as Brisbane has not had rain for 3 or 4 months (although its raining right now and has been for the past week on and off). We are on level 3 restrictions which means the dams are down below 30% capacity. The Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast both have full dams so I guess we could always go away for the weekend to wash our car and have a shower. Only kidding its not that bad but soon we will be having to pay for our water.

We have booked tickets home to Auckland for Xmas this year, so we are looking forward to that.
Anyway must sign off now as I am at work and have some things to do.
Love to hear from you all.

The New Year

Hi all,

Well another christmas and new year have past. It was good to have my family over for 2 weeks. Our little house is getting better and better as we now have a lawn mower (me??) to mow the lawn with. Mowed the front half again yesterday and now need to do the back again. It seriously took me 1.5 hours to mow the front as the lawn is so thick. Everyone who as been has commented on our nice lawn. We also have a dishwasher now which is really great and Mel is happy cos the kitchen is heaps tidier.
We seem to have had visitors since we moved in but it has been good. Looking at going camping for the weekend up at noosa so that is something to look forward to for the rest of the week.
Mel has started her new job and is really enjoying that, but that is her story so I will leave it to her to tell you all about that.

Anyway I must go, have fun everyone.
