After some job hunting we stumbled across a job in a vineyard in Flat Point, 2 hours drive from Wellington. We headed up there, and along the unsealed roads to a farm in the middle of nowhere. We lived in a batch by the sea, with just some mice and some Brazilians’ for company, and had an awesome time! The work wasn't too hard - although the days were long - and it was gorgeous weather the whole time. After our 3 days here, we left back to the real world to job hunt.
Fortunately, I got a job working as a nanny for 2 little boys. They are both really cute, and it's good fun spending days at the beach, parks and swimming pool :) Dan got a job working for Telecom (rather controversial as he is a Vodaphone customer!), which keeps him busy as there are huge queues all day long.
Also, in the past couple of weeks the weather has turned...huge storms, hail and even snow occasionally, and so we have decided the time has come to move indoors. After viewing loads of houses, we have eventually found one we love, and are moving in in 2 weeks... !
