    Default Visas Approved!

    OMG, after so much stress about the registration fiasco we spoke to our case officer and to our shock and extreme relief she informed us that she was happy to approve our visas!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She had been in contact with OH employer and based on the fact the type of work he will be doing is low voltage she was happy to accept it so NZ here we come arghhhhhh!!!!! We will pop up to London to collect passports Monday or Tuesday

    Everythings happening now as the house sale completed today so I am typing this on my sisters PC and then we aim to head out the first week of July, we just want to check that is ok with our friends who live in Katikati before booking flights who have kindly offered to pick us up from the airport and we will stay with them for a few days before they drive us down to New Plymouth. So at the moment we have about 6 suitcases worth of clothes and bits and bobs that we need to narrow down a lot ready for the journey and everything else we where keeping has been taken by the removal company ready to ship off to NZ. OMG cant quite belive its all starting to happen and that in 4 weeks we will probably be in NZ!!!!!!!!

    Hurray! What a relief for you. Good news all round. The next few weeks will be a whirlwind so make the most of them before you set off for pastures new or is that paddocks new?
