    Default I am off!!!

    I had my last day of work today!!!

    Was so happy to see the last of it...as it became very stressful!!

    And I am off on Wednesday! Cannot believe it.....saying goodbyes is really difficult, but I keep telling myself that it IS only 24 hours away, and can come back if need be...but I am so excited about starting my new life over there!!

    Any hints/tips/advice from anyone that has been in this boat before, please send them my way!! They would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Woohoo!! Not leaving much time before the end of work and leaving the country are you?! Anyone would think you couldn't wait to get to NZ!

    No doubt you've mentioned this elsewhere, but where are you headed?

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

    Have a great flight and move. Expect a rollercoaster of a time - then you will be pleased and smug if everything goes oh so smoothly.

    Thumbs up Going to NZ

    Well,

    i know how you feel! The other day i had to break the news to my parents that i was leaving UK for NZ. It was sooooooooo painful! Tears all round. They are absolutely broken.

    My hubby is from NZ and has lived in UK with me for 2 yrs. He thinks we can get a better life in NZ so we're waiting for the visa to come through. It's going to be awlful when the time comes to leave and waving good bye BUT i do know we're making the right decision and NZ is a beautiful place to live. Been there twice and have fallen in love with the place.

    Anna
