Moving to Estonia!

A few months ago, Mirjam and I felt God tell us to move to Estonia. We don't fully know His reasons (yet), but here are some of the benefits for us moving overseas:

  • We'll be with Mirjam's family for the birth of our first child. It's much easier for a woman to be surrounded by her own family when she's giving birth for the first time.
  • We'll be living with Mirjam's parents to start with, and when the baby's born. They have a two-storey house, the whole second floor of which will be essentially ours.
  • My business can be run from anywhere....

I'm an Uncle!

Josiah Thomas Anderson

Josiah Thomas Anderson, my first nephew, was born one week ago today; 10th March 2010 at 5:48pm. He weighed 3.3kg (7lb 5oz) and was 48cm long, born to Stephen and Megan Anderson.

He's the first of his generation in our family - our first nephew, Mum and Dad's first grandchild and Nanna's first great-grandchild. We're all very pleased everything went well and look forward to spoiling him heaps ;)

I originally bought a nice stuffed Panda bear which I was going to give him when he was born, but it was stolen off my desk at work... :(
A friend then suggested buying him a blanket with a panda...

Ok, so it's been a while since my last post... But can you blame me? We just moved house!

For as long as I can remember (since I was about 2), we've lived in Sandy Beach. We'd been thinking about moving for a while, and at one stage actually put our house up on the market. Since we couldn't get the price we wanted, we decided to stay where we were.

A few years on, we were suddenly discussing the prospect of moving again.

A few internet searches and house inspections later and we had found a nice, two-story brick home in Coffs Harbour. We made an offer and it was accepted. All the...
