  1. Thought an update was required

    by , 28-05-2011 at 08:12 AM
    Have been reading a lot of posts and blogs lately and thought it about time I updated this one on our current situation and all that has happened in the last 2 years.

    My last blog entry was just before we flew out to start our new life in NZ - for those that have been following the forum you will know that we are back in the UK now. A brief summary of what has happened over the last 2 or more years.

    Well, we all arrived in NZ in Sept 2008 excited, tired and apprehensive. ...

    Never thought we would see this week. It has been so long in the planning and doing stage and now it is all coming together!! Scarey!!! The dogs have gone on an extended holiday - they went with GA yesterday, we scattered the ashes of our other dog along his favourite walk today so we are now toatlly dogless I keep thinking of all the last minute things to be done - it seems a lot but isn't much when you get down to it.

    Our boiler engineer was supposed to come today to replace the part that they 'think' is causing the leak.

I was very calm and didn't raise my voice too much and agreed as I had no choice. OH just keeps saying forget the whole thing as we are leaving soon but I don't really want to hand over the house with a leaky boiler. I do have some pride
