New neighbours

We finally have new next door neighbours, and with with a touch of Portugal, too!
Mum Vanessa, dad Andrew, and daughters Samantha(8) and Nicole(6) - who are both attending Clara's school - all share the Portuguese surname "da Ponte". Vanessa and Andrew came from South Africa 10 years ago. Andrew's family is originally from Madeira.
We didn't meet Andrew when we went over to introduce ourselves and present them with a bottle of Touriga Nacional and a Best Wishes in your New Home card, but the rest of the family is lovely. The kids love playing outside and they have two adorable cats. Ana and Clara are ecstatic...
Our former, very strange neighbours left last Friday without even saying goodbye...
