In summary, our first two weeks have been busy, hard work and exhausting, but fun, exciting and a great new challenge! Some things, however, have been far from fun, such as scrubbing and cleaning all the cupboards, walls, floors and windows!
We arrived at Kamberg Valley Hideaway on the 31st March and the previous owners left on the 2nd April. This gave us one day to learn how the water systems and pumps work, how to use the tractor, lawn mover, brush cutter, log burners and a multitude of other new things. It was a huge amount to take in and as we have gone along, we've realised that we didn't manage to take everything in, but we have learnt through trial and error instead!
That first morning at Kamberg Valley Hideaway, we woke up (well we actually barely sleep, but not due to excitement, instead due to having to sleep on the world's most uncomfortable air bed!), but technically, we woke up to the most gorgeous day and went for a walk around our new home.
We almost achieved our goal, but have one more thing to do before it is finally in our name, and that is to sample our new Municipality! Wish us luck!
We have also had builders; insurance brokers and carpet fitters come by to give us quotes, so next week will be bringing some new adventures. The builders start tomorrow morning. They will be knocking through the second bedroom to the guest wing, tiling the bathroom and shower in the guest wing and painting the roof and outside of the entire house. Before we arrived we had wild notions of doing all of this ourselves, but fortunately sense prevailed and we have a builder and his team coming to do it for us instead!
We have had some fun at the weekends and my next blog will bring you some news and pictures of that! I'll sign off now with a quick photo from one of our mornings enjoying a coffee in the sunroom. This is our wide screen TV!
