Oh, this is all so interesting, Matt has a "friend"!  I wonder if you will ever get any more information.  I'm glad he is doing better with the job at the mine, that's great.  So Matt is never in his house, am I correct about that?  Nikau is still around and now moving into Annie's house.  I remember Reggie was a lot to deal with so I can see why Annie is tired of the job.  Thanks for the updates Moira!

That will solve Matt's problem then with Annie being in the house. So Nikau will look after Annie's house and Reggie, good job all round then. Interesting about Matt's 'friend', I wonder if it will go beyond 'friendship'?

John rings Matt from here as he has an Aussie phone and counts as a local call to Matt but Matt never tells John anything.  Annie gets more information out of Matt so we rely on her for any news :0 
At the moment Karen is looking after the house as the two dogs are there and they need feeding and walking !  Matt has not been able to fly from the gold mine back to Perth for the last few weeks due to the Virus... no planes ! Maybe they will start flying to Perth again shortly !

I guess all planes aren't flying everywhere.  I think ours are here but I'm not absolutely sure of that either.  I do know there aren't nearly as many passengers as there were before.  I'm so GLAD we took our cruise last summer, I couldn't have done it health wise and probably there It's good you have a way to keep in touch with Matt that doesn't cost a lot.  Annie gives you Matt's details, it's probably normal that a brother would tell a sister more than he would a parent.    Maybe Matt can get home sometime soon!

Our domestic flights are now slowly opening up, so Matt should be able to fly home again now, surely? Does Karen live in Matt's house? Remind me again who Karen is please :)

I didn't know about  Karen either though she just told us yesterday about someone living there.  I think she thought we knew who Karen is, but I don't either.

Oh no doubt Moira has told us, but I can't remember and neither can you :)

I know, I can't even come up with any possibilities.

YES I did tell you about Karen staying in Matt's House.  I told you how Mary's brother Richie was coming from Melbourne and sleeping in the same room as Mary's kids in Perth..... when Matt got stuck up in the gold mine area he needed someone to look after the house & dogs so Richie moved in. Then Mary/Richie's mum Karen was back from her catering job in the mines and unable to get back because of the virus so she also moved into Matt's house to help. It was better than also staying at Mary's house with the kids aged 4 & 6 and miserable Lindsay ( Mary's partner)  Karen has spring cleaned the house and contents and Annie says it is perfect now ! Karen is nice, we have known them since we were in Marton.  Karen and husband Richard were running a pub/ hotel in Nelson ( top of the South Island) for a few years  but Richard got a bit carried away with the drink and women so in the end Karen got sick of it all and walked out and went to Perth to Mary's house. 
Does that story ring any bells ?

HELP.............well, it's kind of familiar, I remember someone moving into Matt's house but didn't remember the name.  If you read over what you wrote you will see it's pretty complicated for an old person with chemo brain!    Thanks for going through all of that for us again.
It's great that Karen has cleaned up the house so much that it's perfect.  Now let me see here, Annie is moving into Matt's house but she won't be living there alone because the others are still there too, is that right?

Ah yes, I remember now, thank you for explaining it all again Moira :) Will Matt be able to come home again anytime soon? What will happen when Karen can go back to the mines? Or is that when Annie is going to move in? What does Richie do?

Hahaha too many questions :) 
Annie will move into Matt's house in maybe a week or so when Karen can go back to her fly in fly out job. Matt's house has 2 lounges and has 3 bedrooms so Annie will have one bedroom and she is quite happy for Karen to stay when on her week off work. Matt will keep his own bedroom and office as he will be allowed to fly back every 2 weeks after the end of June :) Matt does not mind Annie being there when he is there either and nor will he bother if Karen is there either because Karen loves to cook and clean  !! AS for Karen's son Richie,  he got a job in Perth but packed it in because he did not like the boss ! I talked to Matt tonight when he rung and he said he had got Richie a mining job with ? did not catch the name but apparently I know who he is !!! Matt talks too fast and half the time I miss what he is saying and NO I am not deaf !!!!  :o
SO Nikau will pay Annie's mortgage in rent ... almost :) Then Annie will help with Matt's payments as rent and she will take rent off Karen and Richie if they stay !

I had to laugh when I read Darien's post last night, it sounded like me, all those questions!    You did good Darien, I wanted to know all that stuff too and wasn't it interesting, good job Moira you filled us in so well!    It really sounds  like an ideal situation for all of them and I hope it works well.

I know there was a lot of questions, but I needed to know It sounds like a good arrangement all round then. I know what you mean about Matt talking fast, they all seem to these days and I am always saying "Pardon?" !!!!

It sounds to me to be a good idea all round as Matt is not good at bill paying ! Not always due to lack of money but because he does not attend to his mail ! As for him speaking fast.... I cannot keep up so I rarely speak to him on the phone as I am always saying WHAT ? Not Pardon ..........just WHAT !
