The past fortnight I’ve been preparing for our move back to Wellington, New Zealand. So much stuff! Having had three daughters learning from home for an entire year there was a lot to sort through; books, stationery, toys, dress-ups, science equipments, outdoor toys, art supplies… the list goes on and on! I was relieved when the date for the packers to come arrived and I could bid it all farewell for a while.
Crown Relocations did a superb job of packing everything up. We’ve always used ‘Crown’ for international moves and they are always very professional and friendly. Our girls were around most of the day, but weren’t at all concerned to see their belongings packed up – even our youngest daughter, at 4 years of age, took it all in her stride. When the packing was finished, and the truck loaded up, we all waved ‘Bon voyage’. It will be a good five to eight weeks before we see our stuff again.
We now have just over a month left in Santa Barbara, California. A month to make the most of the constant blue sky and endless sunshine, before returning to our home – where the weather is anything but predictable, but full of excitement and wild beauty.
