    Default Home at last

    Well after just over 12 months back in the UK we have finally moved into our own home. Our journey has been one of many ups & downs. It involved bad homesickness while in NZ, me returning to the UK leaving OH and my 2 boys in NZ and then the whole family leaving NZ and the dogs in kennels to live in the UK but apart. But we have finally come to the end and have moved into our new home. We are still in a stare of upheaval with boxes everywhere but it is so good to be in our own home with no one else watching what we do or what we say. As much as we love NZ and on occassions wonder why we left we cannot and would not return for good. We will be visiting for more extensive holidays in the future and will always have a soft spot in our hearts for the Land of the Long White Cloud

    Good to hear you're finally back at the point where you want to be, Nicky. Even though NZ didn't quite work out for you, at least you won't have to wonder 'What if....?' You've been there and done that.

    Here's wishing you all the very best in your new home and your 'renewed' life in the UK. Good luck!

    Thanks MB. Although we are back almost to where we started we have made changes and changed ourselves. So all was not lost and we met a lot of wonderful people on the way.
