    Good grief! I didn't realise it was that quick although I knew it was imminent. Oh dear, and we haven't done our usual pre-departure thread wishing them bon voyage etc. I think I was waiting on an announcement of impending departure to prompt me.

    If you do look in BJ and ZL, have a safe and comfortable flight. Good luck with the kids, I'm sure they'll be excited to be on a plane. Here's wishing you heaps of for your new life.

    Have a wonderful trip over to NZ - hope it all goes really well, and that the kids let you get some sleep Can't wait to hear all about your 1st impressions, and make sure you keep us updated during your travels.

    oooops, pressed post too early!!

    Just wanted to add that we will really miss you guys, but I think you will love NZ and all it can offer you as a family. We were sorry that we didn't get a chance to say another "Au revoir" before you headed off, but know that you had loads of people demanding your precious time. Take care of yourselves and those beautiful children of yours. Make sure you end up in a HUGE house, cos we will be stopping in to see you on our travels round NZ in a few years time!!

    Love and luck to you all,

    Maggie, Ken, Frankie, Ollie and Alex x x x x x x

    You must sing this to the tune of 'Is this the way to Amarillo' and you must walk like Peter Kay whilst singing it.

    'Is this the way to Christchurch City
    I've been told it's oh so pretty
    Not in the least little bit shitty
    Like bloody, crowded Auckland

    Is this the way to Kokos coffee
    I've heard he makes it nice and frothy
    Hope his milk isn't offey
    It's so damn expensive now

    When the day is dawning
    On a glorious NZ morning
    Your cyber friends'll be revvin'
    To welcome you to NZ heaven
    Every friendly city where you lay your hat
    Will smell pretty shitty
    Coz of all the huge cow pats

    Is this the way to Christchurch city
    To miss out on Hamilton is a pity
    Dawn can get you nice and fitty
    And melt away your wobbly bits

    Is this the way to gay abandon
    You must remember to put your pants on
    Before you stretch out on the verandah
    And scare your neighbours half to death

    Is this the way to truth and light
    Or is your anal bumhole too tight
    Words like that can start a fight
    I'm glad that I can run so fast

    Is this the way to play the banjo
    Is this the way to flick a yo yo
    Is this the way to dance a go go
    I'm running out of things to say

    La la la la la la la la (clap clap)
    La la la la la la la la (clap clap)
    La la la la la la la la (clap clap)
    Don't let your children pick their nose

    repeat

    Passionate about the unfathomableness opportunities of kiwi-a-gogo-land

    See, now anything follows that post is going to pale in comparison isn't it

    That should be the MTNZ anthem - we shall all get together and meet one day, and Jon will bring his banjo and we will sit around an open campfire, singing that vair vair song, possibly followed by Kum Ba Yah My Lord

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
