    Hi!!

    We have a Springer Spaniel Mollie, and a belgian shepherd puppy Chopper (6mnths).

    I currently work on the Thames as a lock keeper - Terry works for the nuclear police force, but will be going back to aviation.
    He has a job offer, and i am not sure what i want to do,am thinking child care or nannying ( Im 21 in a few months and the mr is 30)...

    I dont know where to start.... we know we have to live in Blenheim, but somewhere kind of cheap, at least 2 bedrooms, has to be close or on a dog walking place ie the beach or the woods, and do we start packing up yet, selling the house... I dont know!!Argh!!!

    Ummm.... yeah lol.....

    and welcome from me, too.


    A lock keeper? That sounds a nice, relaxing kind of job apart from having to go outside in all sorts of weather.

    Good luck with your move to NZ.
