The Haven is open!

At last! We moved in on 17th of June 2015, and I’ve been sorting little things like door and window latches, and we have chosen a room to live in:

My makeshift desk with the few precious objects I managed to smuggle into the packed car on our first load from Kaiwaka!

Raewyn and Peter having our first ‘bubble’ in the warm sun in our room. Reunited with doglets too, after four weeks in Europe. They are so happy to have us back… no hard feelings!
