I got the keys from the estate agent last week, and met the owner. He's really nice and very helpful so I feel good about dealing with him in future.
Once again it has been an experience in gratitude for good friends.
- Our friend Inus has been storing the furniture my sister left behind when she moved to Singapore for over two months so we can use it when we get a house.
- Our friends René and Regardt lent us their bakkie (pick-up truck) for the entire weekend (and at short notice), without which I have no idea how we would have moved our things, or how much it would have cost us.
- Leigh lent us her car (AGAIN) so we could go to Centurion and get the bakkie, and took us there to return it.
So we have the start of furnishings; we're in the process of unpacking and buying some stuff; unfortunately I don't have time for more details right now but it's going really well and we're even inches away from buying a car. More soon, I promise!!
