Hi dance, not yet, maybe later. At this moment in time we have a little problem. When we looked for a house in Rotorua we knew we had to look at the school zones first. Got the right school, looked for a house. It is a bit difficult to find a house in a area that everybody wants to put their kids into. Eventually found one, we thought we would be able to get all our stuff from Africa into. But we were sadly mistaken. We had to go and get a storage facility, 8x3. Now we end up paying rent plus. So we calculated to take the storage money plus present day rent, add it together and we can get a bigger house without paying anything more than what we are already paying. Makes sense to us. Don't know if it makes sense to anybody else.

Thanx dance, will do,  3/4 of our stuff is still in "Kings" boxes, in storage. Will only touch them in the new house to unpack.

I hear Xmas bells again.  Like opening a present and then there is the AHHH... factor.  AHHH forgot we had this, or AHhh when did you buy this, never knew we had this.  Enjoy guys, you deserve it.
