This past week we’ve had a couple from home stay with us. I’ll just call them A and R for short. They are very close friends of ours; both were in our wedding party and we were in theirs. They drove over to see some of her family and spend some time with us; to see where we were living and taste a bit of our world.
Now when I say that they were staying with us, I mean that loosely. After all our place has only three rooms (bedroom, small study, dining and living combined), plus a bathroom and kitchen. But we live in a wonderful community of college students who lend out their houses for occasions such as these when they themselves are away on holidays. A and R got to stay in a place in the unit block next to ours.
While they were here we took them to the zoo, showed them our college and fed them King Street thai, went to the Rocks Markets and brought them to our church. They also went to the Powerhouse Museum and saw The Lion King Musical. They met some of our friends here in our college community and we played a lot of board games.
It was wonderful to have them here with us and show them a bit of what our life is like here. Now that they’re gone we’ve hit the books hard with three holiday assignments to complete over the next two weeks!
