SO, it’s now been about, well, over four months since we arrived in the Land of Oz, and still we don’t have our ‘stuff’. In the beginning it felt wierd not having things that were familiar and you’d go to get something out of the cupboard, and well, it wouldn’t be there. Then we got used to it, and it’s actually AMAZING how you can survive with so little ‘stuff’. In fact something tells me we might have a clear out when everything arrives (when it DOES arrive). But now i’m back to being frustrated that we need things like our John Mayer music DVD, stove top coffee maker and flip flops - NEED.
When we were packing up shop back in SA, my lovely Robsie, encouraged me to see this little adventure as just that - see below.
I miss you Rob, and i wish you had come over in my suitcase as i know your inspiring sense of style and colour would’ve helped me achieve this, alas, i am now having complete sense of humour failure that i have no summer clothes and temps are reaching over 30 deg some days *Sweat*.
Last we know our container was discharged from a ship like this one - except ours was called HMS Lucy - i am hoping this is a good thing - the Lucy part - that it’s as reliable and as trustworthy as my beautiful sister. I find the pics a little disturbing. Maybe i’ve watched too many movies like the one with ashton kutcher who is suspended by a rope in swells higher than the sydney viewing tower and maybe i should’ve packed special things in my hand luggage and not the container.
In the meantime i will continue to get in trouble for stealing the husbands boxers to sleep in as all my summer jim jams are with Lucy. Will keep you informed.
See ya later x
