Moving On Up


Life Update: We moved!

Well, mostly. Everything but the bed, so.. not quite there yet. It’s going to be an adventure moving our king size mattress on the roof of my honda civic up a mountain.. so stay tuned for that nonsense..

We moved into the ranges in Waitakere and its stoooooooooopid beautiful. Our new house is a cute little 2 bedroom villa down a suicidal driveway in the middle of nowhere. Standing on the porch we look out over a valley, and you can see for miles and miles and not a single house in sight. Its so quiet. Just palm trees and pastures and birds. A MILLION BIRDS!  Our house is underneath a line of Kauri trees and they are full of Tuis, and big fat wood pigeons– one of them nearly flew straight into my head and we both made the exact same sound when it happened. I sat on the grass in the sunshine and fantails zipped around checking us out. The birds were all very curious. I found a real life weta on our front door! SO exciting. We have a little veggie patch that is currently growing super tasty cherry tomatoes, really shiny healthy silverbeet, a variety of herbs and a tamarillo tree. I wish I had pictures, its 100% my dream house. I can’t wait to show you. Hopefully by next week I’ll have a few pictures. It’s like living in a goddamn postcard. Finally I feel like I’m actually living on a tropical island.

The kitchen is lovely and I cant wait to cook in it. The garden and lawn are a bit messy right now and I also can’t wait to get on my boots and do some proper green thumbing. CB and I spent tuesday afternoon having a no pants pizza party in our new living room. Did you know that Pizza Hut makes a HOT DOG STUFFED CRUST PIZZA. *Brain Explosions* I ate a whole one. Don’t judge me, The Rock would have been proud.

In completely unrelated news, my stomach has completely stopped working…
