Our new Sunny Coast lifestyle.

So hard to believe we have now been living here on the Sunny Coast for 2 months and today is the second day we have seen rain.  The opposite to NZ we are suffering drought like conditions here.

We are absolutely loving our new laid back lifestyle, having a blast with work and play.  Has been awesome catching up with old friends and bumping into people holidaying that we know so be sure to look us up when you over here.

We are currently in Auckland for 2 days as Andy gives his bone marrow recipient a top up. I’m sure this random has just acquired a taste for craft beer in Andy’s marrow.  What is with this weather up here? Don’t miss the cold SW wind at all.

No bikes in this update as its magpie season and we are sick of being swooped upon. However be rest assured we are in the throws of planning our 2018 bike adventures.

Whale watching view from our balcony.
Loading the backpack with supplies then on the bikes to get precious cargo home.
Sampling a siera Nevada pale ale on his birthday
Waiting for Uber, loving being car free
A lot to catch up on after 10yrs Dan and Janet but nothing changes except you now have triplets
With Brend and Mel and kids on GC. Trip down memory lane when we lived on the GC together late 90s early 2000s. Yep we are a couple of shorties!
In uniform off to work. Got to love Coles online grocery delivery
Off to work we go at First Light. 10min walk down the street……..too easy.
Procedure currently taking place in Auckland. Same Dr, same nurses, same recipient who has just sent a personal message via NZ bone marrow services saying he is forever grateful to his donor for being so generous and obliging.
