week two, a summary, some palm-trees and a kitten

Another week has gone by, how crazy is that? For the most part this week has been very similar to the last one. I've been visiting the cats twice a day, watching Netflix and planning the furnishing of our house in between visits and have had lunch and dinner with Andreas every day. The biggest difference was that we watch quite a lot of Euro 2016, but let's not talk any more about that. So, similar week, up until today Two funny things happened today! The first one is garden related. We saw and add in the local buy-and-sell Facebook group about someone selling plants and trees from their garden. It sounds a bit strange but that's apparently how things are done here: when you move, you bring your stuff and you sell what you can't bring including the plants in you garden... We answered this add since our garden looks a bit bare and ended up buying two semi large palms, a piece of a banana plant and some bushes. Awesome! We are arranging for a guy to help us dig the plants up, drive them to our house and plant them, because they are big. And because there's apparently a guy who does this for a living. But we did manage to fit the banana plant in our little car...




So, the second funny thing of the day! After picking up the plant we went to the house to drop it off. And while we were in the garden our neighbor dropped by. He introduced himself (Pat, middle-aged guy from Australia) and his pet cat he was carrying around. Apparently he had found this kitten in his garden yesterday and decided to adopt it! It's a tiny white kitten, an abandoned stray, and it's super cute. I'm almost certain it's the same kitten we saw in our garden two days ago and that I took this photo off! 


Obviously I liked this guy, even though he talked a lot. I even volunteered to look after Snowy (the cat) when he goes on vacation in a week. I mean, I love cats and it's important to have a good relationship with your neighbors, especially when you don't know anyone else around... 

So. Two weeks in a hotel (for me, two months for Andreas!) is hopefully over if all goes as planned and we get our furniture tomorrow and can move in! Crossing my fingers....
