    Default See you all soon!!!

    Hi all,

    been a while since we've been on the forum. We have been packing and travelling round saying goodbye to family and friends. We leave for Hong Kong tomorrow evening for 3 nights stay, then fly on to Auckland to arrive on Friday. Yippee, at last, but at the same time we are all S@*@ing ourselves!!! We will be in touch with you all as soon as poss, and will keep you updated. Cal, if you read this we might even see you soon as it is almost definite that we will be living in Gulf Harbour.

    Well, got to go and get some sleep if we can. Speak to you all soon. And to all who are still in the process, hang in there and good luck!!!

    Love to all
    Nikki :icon_razz:

    Oh sorry, I misread your original post - it did say you'd be arriving on Friday :icon_redface:

    Glad to hear everything is ok anyway ::):

    Happy landing in Aucks :icon_biggrin:

    Hi Welshgirl,

    we are here at last. We had a few money problems to start with, but things are sorted now. We have found ourselves a house, and have started to buy furniture. We can't believe some of the bargains that you can pick up if you just look around. Really surprised by how friendly and welcoming the kiwi's are. We met our neighbour for the first time today. We told him we were moving in on monday and he offered us his spare rooms until then. Couldn't believe it!! The weather is great compared to a Scottish winter, it's more like a Scottish summer during the day, but even we find it cold at night. Heating is a must!!

    We went to a seminar last night, but we were the Guinea Pigs. It was with a company called Kiwi Ora, who specialise in helping migrants to settle. We were entered into a prize draw and our 6 year old daughter won. It is a limited edition All Black/British Lion Rugby Shirt. Think that will be going in a frame to take pride of place. Might even pop down to the stadium to get some autographs on it (then sell it on ebay, kidding!!!).

    Anyway, thought we would just let you know we have arrived safely, and now we understand why you and Taffy love it so much.

    Never know, we can answer some questions about the Auckland area and lifestyle now.

    See you at Xmas :icon_biggrin:

    Hey Midder! :icon_biggrin:

    Welcome to NZ! So glad you're loving it already - the Kiwis are a friendly bunch aren't they!?

    Hope you still keep visiting the forum now that you're here - your experience of life here will be invaluable to others who aren't lucky enough to be here (yet! :icon_wink: )

    Hope everything goes great for you, and see you at the Christmas party ::):

    P.S. Congrats to your daughter on winning that All Blacks/Lions shirt - keep it under lock and key though, some people would give their right arm for that! :icon_wink: lol

    Hi Midder

    It is so nice to hear you have arrived safely and you seem so happy. It makes me excited to think we will be there in the next few months.

    Good luck with everything and keep us posted. :icon_biggrin: see you at Christmas.
