Our personal effects are in the country. I believe they are even in South Australia. Two weeks ago, we were told we should expect to have them the following week...as in LAST week. Last week, we were told we would get a phone call early this week and they would be delivered by the end of this week. Granted it's only Tuesday afternoon, but I consider 'early' in the week to be Monday or Tuesday...they better call me soon!!!!!!!! I was hoping to be able to bake a birthday cake for my birthday tomorrow, but I need all my baking things, which are still on their way. I am still hoping to be able to make one for Friday...that would mean that our things need to be here by Thursday. A girl can hope!
The last couple of weeks have been really quiet for me, I really am just waiting for our stuff to arrive, so I can get the house sorted and so I can have things to keep me occupied! I bought a new sewing machine here (I had been using my Mum's), but I need all my material and threads which are...you guessed it...still coming!
One of my friends from school is over from NZ at the moment, and we caught up on Friday and visited the Adelaide Zoo. It was really nice to catch up with her, and to get out of the house doing something different! After that, I wandered around the city for a while, saw a street show as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival and then went up to the dance studio where The Husband works. He was taking the 'Dance of the Month' class which is Casino Rueda this month, and as I'm able to dance both the girls part and the guys part, I went to even out numbers if needed...and I was needed, as a girl which is always a bonus! It's always a fun class and I'm looking forward to going again this Friday.
Saturday we visited the McLaren Vale wine region with another couple from the studio - they are very much into their Shiraz's, as is The Husband, so they did the tastings and I did the tagging-along-for-the-ride! It was great to be able to see some more of the scenery around where we live, and the weather held out for the most part - it only started raining as we were at the last winery of the day.
I think that's about it from here for now! Hopefully next time I update, we'll have furniture (our bed! Oh, I am SO looking forward to sleeping in our bed! Being 6 months pregnant and sleeping on an airbed isn't so great).
