Veronica, Nathan and Miss Amy have settled in very nicely at their new home. Amy has been sleeping quite well in her new bedroom. So I am crossing my fingers that it keeps up.
The new house is on tank water, which means that all the water into the house comes from an above-ground rain water tank. To get the water into the house you need an electric pump. (this is a picture of ours)These pumps are pretty noisy so they are usually outside next to the tank.
Vonnie and Nathans pump was in the bathroom cupboard under the sink... mmm a very strange place for a pump... and it wasn't working *sigh* The water that was coming out of the taps was just a trickle.
Today the Spouse and our friend poppy Stan fixed the water pump.. It is still in the bathroom, it is still very noisy but it is working... Yay.... and the water is gushing out of the taps WooHooo!!!
Nathan and poppy Stan put the ridgecapping onto the shed roof, so now the shed is waterproof, (well from the top at least..)
I don't really want to write too much about Vonnie and Natty's new home because It is Veronica's story to tell and also cause Vonnie is a much better writer than me..
But I can tell you that in todays market it was a good buy. The soil looks like it is good fertile sandy loam.My green fingers are itching to play in that soil.. We think there might be a spring at the far corner of the block.I also think that there still might be one or two fruit trees in pots in my late grandfather's garden, that we can plant this winter.The possibilities are endless....
I am really proud of the two of them.. Veronica and Nathan are full of plans and I think that the both of them are walking a bit taller...
Yours excitedly Kim xxx
