Busy week & house for sale?


We've had a busy, but good week.

Monday: a visit with our local HE group to Cockington, a very old village nearby. Adam was (again) intrigued by the glass blowing. We should go back in spring or summer!
Boaz went to the local Scout group in the evening. He actually really liked it. I wasn't sure if it was going to work, but he is very determined to go again.

Tuesday: a visit to friends was cancelled, so I got time to do some cleaning. Job was working from home and I love that. So just a nice day at home. And I managed to buy a swim suit. They don't sell them anywhere here, this time of the year. Luckily I remembered that a local swimming pool had them in spring. I was lucky, they had some my size!!

Wednesday: bowling with the Christian HE group. Long drive, but the boys had fun in the Arcade area there. And afterwards at the house of one of the C-HE-families.

Thurday: getting our pass for (an other) local simming pool (with sauna/steam cabin/soft play area/bowling). There are more local HE families joining, so looking foward to swim regularly! The swimming pool is on a holiday park and it's very quiet during day time. Lucky us!

Friday: a visit from friends. We all had a good afternoon.

Saturday: talking, talking, talking about our house (in Holland). The people that were renting it, will be leaving on the 1st of December. Our plan was to find new people that would like to rent it. But we've (almost 100%) decided to try and sell it. We don't know what we'll be doing after August 2012 (when Job's contract will end), stay here (more work to do --> extension of the contract, move back to Holland, an other country, ..... So many options!

Sooo......if you know people who'd like to buy our house, let us know! :)

Anyway, back to Saturday. The boys had a great evening at the earlier mentioned friends from Friday, while Job and I had a date together (and talk more!). We needed that! In a few weeks, the grown up friends will have a night out and their kids will be at our house. I thought that would be a great way of helping each other. And the kids love  it as well.... 

Sunday: Remembrance day (actually on the 11th, but the remembrance in the village was today). The boys didn't really get it, and it was pouring rain, so we were happy to be home again. Then Job made an enclosure for one of our new 'pets'. I'll show Fred later, together with an other animal, yet to be named.....

Wow, zwemmen, bowlen, glasblazerij.... het lijkt wel vakantie bij jullie! Leuk hoor, geniet ervan.

Ik heb verder geen interesse in een huis in HIA. Een huis in Engeland en dan ook thuisonderwijs lijkt me meer, na het lezen van je blogs.

Groetjes!

Looks like a busy, fun week. Good luck with the house selling. Must be tricky from another country. x
