Living in Zimbabwe

Welcome to our house

October 6, 2018

Time for a little tour of our house and garden!

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but the day Oupa left mum and dad arrived from New Zealand. Since then, I’ve been racing to catch you all up on the ridiculous amount of news we seem to have each day.

Anyways, we live along one of the main roads heading into the Suburbs, but thankfully, the neighbourhood has so far been blessedly quiet…ever since we got rid of the Guinea Fowl after they woke us yet again, this time at 4am. (Don’t worry, no fowls were harmed during this process. They now live with the rest of their tribe just down the road.)

Oh, and aside from a two-day party on the Zambezi River 3 kilometres away that we couldn’t block out even with ear plugs.

Anyways, we live on a big section, and Will is already busy creating an ENORMOUS veggie garden, under shade cloth, with misters out back. The house is totally fine, but we will eventually make some changes just so it works for us.

Our main goal is to have a home in which people feel welcomed, lulls them into lingering, and draws out deep conversations.

My theory is that to achieve this one needs super comfy couches, which people feel they can put their feet up on and…actually, I’m not really sure beyond the super comfy couches.

So without further ado, welcome to our house.
