New Family Home

Well were in our new family home.

We got the keys to 53 Tea Tree Way, Thornlie, Perth, WA, 6108 on the 5th of October and moved in the following day. Furniture for the bedrooms, fridge/freezer for the kitchen, TV's and accessories for the two lounges, furniture for my office and washer for the laundry room were delivered on the same day. The following Monday our own goods were delivered from the container storage that had travelled from England. It is so good to get the picture frames on the wall, to see family around us that we left in England but are now part of our home in Australia.

A very big thank you to Dean, Rachel, Charlotte and Jacob
for putting up with us for the last seven months.
Family: Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica? Where do they go? Wonder no more!!!
It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life. The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life.
If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried.
The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."
Then they kick him in the ice hole.
So, do you want a tour of our new home
well you are anyway so here goes.
This is the entrance to the front door
To the left as you enter is Ryan and Kye's lounge (Furniture now ordered)
The view from the window looking out onto the front garden.


Joining onto the boys lounge is my office (has to be a Stoke theme)
with my Stoke City wall. 
To the right of the boys lounge is our bedroom, the 'master bedroom'
with en suite attached.
Opposite my office is the boys games / computer room.
We then move into the 'Family Room' which is L shaped and includes the kitchen, lounge and dining area.
(Panoramic view) Kitchen is on the left with a small dining area and then the 'sunken' lounge with doors leading out to the outside living area.
Below shows the lounge and the main dining area beyond (not much furniture yet)
We then move to the rear of the house and firstly come to the spare bedroom,
then Ryan's 'Stoke City' bedroom (the first room to be painted),
then the boys shower/bathroom.
We then have the laundry room (with separate toilet). The door leads to the rear of the house and my workshop.
Then we have Kye's bedroom. 
That's the inside of the house done.
Family: I once sent ten puns to family, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did. 
We then move through the door from the family room to the outside living area (panoramic view).
To the left is the rear of the garage and in the far corner the most important area, the beer fridge and barbecue area!!!!
Another Stokie area!!!!!
To the right is the gate to the swimming pool,
just behind the umbrella's is a shady gazebo.
The view from the gazebo
and the gate that leads to my workshop.
That's our new home in Australia, hope you have found it interesting.
My next Blog will continue with the story of the first Nickisson's in my family tree to move to Australia, also, the story of vegetable growing here and back in England and any new updates to our home in Tea Tree Way.
And finally:  Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so well, they decided to get married.
One broom was, of course, the bride broom, the other the groom broom.
The bride broom looked very beautiful in her white dress. The groom broom was handsome and suave in his tuxedo. The wedding was lovely.

After the wedding, at the wedding dinner, the bride-broom leaned over and said to the groom-broom, 'I think I am going to have a little whisk broom!' 'IMPOSSIBLE !' said the groom broom.

Are you ready for this?
Brace yourself; this is going to hurt!!!!!!

Speak to you soon
