    Default Hi from Glenfield, Auckland

    Hi!

    I'm Tanya, partner to Jay and mom to Isabella. We moved to Auckland 2 months ago and have settled in Glenfield on the North Shore.

    I'm an interactive project manager and my partner is a reluctant stay-at-home-dad (i.e looking for work).

    We've been on another forum but they've recently closed off the help section for paid members and so I thought it was time to find a new place for questions and support.

    Looking forward to chatting!

    Hi Tanya, welcome to the forum

    Fortunately we don't have a paid members section and all help is always free!

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

    We're from Johannesburg, South Africa.

    The move is a big one from here and we are so happy we made it!

    Welcome to the forum Tanya! I have just moved to Auckland from England and I am living in Mount Albert.

    I've only been here 3 weeks and I love it. The biggest thing is getting out and making friends like you said, it can be abit lonely and isolated at times. If you fancy a chat let me know!
