A woman who has spent a lifetime saving money to get to the country and now wants to be self-sufficient is turning to a mules shoe company to help pay the bills.
A few months ago, Emma Thompson spent more than $1,000 to get her family on a flight to Australia.
It was the first time in her life that she had spent more on a trip than she would have paid for.
Emma Thompson has lived in a caravan for more than 30 years.
She says the family’s journey from New Zealand to Australia has taken up a lot of her time and money.
“I’ve never had to buy a house, I’ve never lived in the big city,” she said.
“So when you can get to Australia and have a house and car and everything else that you need, that’s just so much better.”
Ms Thompson says she was always going to buy her own home.
But now, she is trying to save up enough to get a mumps vaccine.
“It’s been going well, we’re very close to our goal of having a mum and a dad,” she explained.
“When we’ve had the time, we’ve decided to do it.”
Ms Anderson is looking for a mulsing business to help cover the cost of the trip.
“The money’s all gone,” she laughed.
“We’re not able to do anything with the money now.”
