Finally! The video’s done and uploaded and I’m ready to share pictures of the new house (somehow it’s taken three weeks to actually get most of the decorations and stuff up?). We’re thoroughly pleased with it (despite our landlady being a bit impossible to get ahold of– we only met to sign the contract and pay our first month’s rent and security deposit exactly three weeks after receiving the keys…); we’re a five-minute walk from our new school, it’s big, it’s quite lovely, and still insanely cheap (3500 Baht/month; or US$120). There’s room for Ollie to run around (and, once upon a time, rabbits… *kisses finger, points to sky*), and for Wayne to do some serious gardening (while I wield the occasional watering can and snap photos again…). So without further ado:

Edit: Somehow in my rushed post yesterday I left out these pictures. So here they are:
