So... Are you are kiwi living in Australia?
I'm interested to know... do you like it? Do you love it? Do you Loathe it? Do you tolerate it?
When I had my little visit with my twin sissy a couple of weeks ago, its fair to say that she's really enjoying her time there, they have a beautiful brand new 4 bedroom home they are renting and they are raising their kiddies as little Maozzies (Maori-Ozzies). Truth be told though, the kids seem to love it over there too. My sissy respects Australia and sings the national anthem loud and proud! Don't get me wrong though, she still backs black!
I totally get it! I get why kiwi's flock there by the thousands each year... and I'm getting itchy feet... my sister has put down the invitation... "come over!" she said, "it's great!" and it's very very tempting. Mr C and I are contemplating it... not so seriously to worry anyone at the moment... but contemplating nonetheless.
Perhaps when I was over there I was impressed by the cheap shopping and the seemingly wonderful lifestyle, but like all kiwis I wonder about the snakes and the spiders and the biting ants! Even though my sister has assured me that she hasn't seen any snakes in the time she's been there (just about 2 years) but... it still freaks me out!
Now New Zealand... it's home! I love our green country and the way we can go bare feet in the grass in summer, I love the little hikes up the mountains and swimming in the crystal clear rivers... I love the summer and I love the winter and it all just seems too hard to pack up and leave for anything else... even if it is for some kind of financial gain.
We have been pretty blessed as a family with the jobs that we have and leaving them would be a huge leap into insecurity and financial uncertainty...
I feel like we could totally go...
but then I feel like we couldn't possibly go!!!
But are you happy there? Would you pack up your family and move there?
Anyway... It's Friday and I'm a bit rambly tonight...
I'm going to do a 'Super Sunday' post and a 'Vintage love' post this week so keep an eye out...
I hope your toes are warm and your belly is satisfied!
