    Smile Kiaora

    Hi
    I came over to N.Z at end of january,with my hubby and 2 of my 3 kids.
    My eldest stayed back home in Scotland as he has college.
    We came over as visitors,to well ,check the place out.
    We like what we saw and within 3 weeks hubby had job offer.
    Just waiting on the work permit now,which seems to be taking forever.
    Looking forward to getting to know you all

    Hi Meadow, and welcome to the forum

    Patience is most certainly a virtue when it comes to waiting for permits! They'll be with you soon enough though

    Feel free to join in with the rest of the forum, as we all love getting to know new folks!

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

    Meadow. Another Christchurchian. Perhaps you'd like to sign up for the Chch coffee/tea group. Kokopeli is getting a few folks together to organise a meetup so, if you want to put your name down, go to Groups near the top of the forum along with all the other titles.

    Good luck with the Work Permit. Hope it comes through soon so you can relax and get on with life.

    Hiya Meadow, and welcome ...

    I'm sure you'll soon settle in here - great bunch of people.

    How are you finding Christchurch? It is on our list as possibles ... although the cold weather is putting us off.

    Good luck with a speedy work permit (can you put speedy and immigration in the same sentence)?

    TTFN,

    Lou
