We're back Online

Mark with one of the loads
Well it has been a tiring few days - but now that the internet is changed over to the new apartment - I feel like we are finally over the worst!
Moving in Ecuador is certainly a lot different to moving in New Zealand! For one thing we don't have a car and thankfully we were able to take up the offer of a brother for some help with the majority of the gear but we also wheeled quite a few loads over in our suitcases. How come we collect so much stuff??? We have only been here 5 months and look at it all! Have to say though that is nothing to what we moved when we left our house after 12 years - so glad we had a vehicle then.
Poor Mark got a bit lost while he was wheeling a load over - the apartment we have is part of a complex with all the buildings looking the same. The door happened to be open in the one next to us so he thought - "sweet, I don't have to fumble for my keys". We are on the 4th floor so after struggling up with the suitcase in one hand, a bag in the other and one on his back (a lot like the picture shows actually) - he gets to the door he thought was ours and tries to open it. Good job the people were not home - I don't know how he would have explained himself! So of course he was doubly tired when he got home from that trip.
I will post pictures soon of the new place, once I have it shipshape - at the moment we are still finding placing for things and of course I want it to look good before I show it to the world!

POOR Mark could probably do with one of his important massage from you?
The office girls at Jaes did a blunder in fact worst like Mark too!
They sent terry to a house that was unlocked with nobody home to be carpet cleaned,
Later he soon got a call from the office asking where are you? as the lady said terry is nowhere to be seen!!
The girls have sent terry to the wrong address, Wow the people got a free carpet clean the house was not in a mess!lol (just as well they were not home)
Looking forward to seeing the set up of your new place,
It was great to see you back again it put a big smile on my face!
