    Hello Jon and welcome to the forum.

    I don't know much about Christchurch I'm afraid, have you thought about Tauranga in the North Island? There are some lovely houses there, we might even be able to sell you one!!!

    Anyway, good luck with your EOI and good luck with the job hunting, it really is a wonderful place, and I think you and the family would fit in really well, don't be put off by the fact that we came back to haunt you!!

    Maggie and them! xx

    Thanks everyone. Maggie, I'll swap you are house here for your house over there! Sure Ken would love the fact it's right next to a pub.

    Hi Jon

    We live just down the road from you in Bournemouth (Southbourne to be exact) and are just in the process of sorting visas and things out to move across as my OH has a job offer in New Plymouth, Taranaki.

    Hope everything works out really well for you.

    All the best

    Ali

    It's a small world Ali. Keep me posted on how you are doing. Be interesting to follow someone going through the same process we will hopefully be doing next year.

    Hi Jon,

    Welcome to the forum

    Love the avatar! Looks like a tax inspector with a pint of guiness in his hand

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

    Its scary just how much Jon looks like his avatar, though apparently he is cutting down on the Guinness now that he has found out that each pint contains as many calories as a roast dinner - he's obviously already worried about the medicals!!
