    Talking Made the move from Newquay to Wellie

    Hi everyone,
    I posted on here a while back that my husband had been offered a job in NZ in February;on accepting the job he was given the till the end of May for us to move over here. We were given Auckland or Wellington to choose from as our new location.

    Well, we chose Wellington and arrived here with our work visas on the 27th of May . At the moment we are staying temporarily in rented accommadation in Khandallah. We are moving out to another rented place in Johnsonville on the 21st as the two Weimaraner dogs we have brought over with us need a little more room to roam than they have at present.

    Anyway, I wanted to say hello and get involved in the forum again now that I have got internet set up etc. and would love to keep in touch with you all.

    Good to hear you arrived safely. Welcome to Welli!
    How long til Hubby has to start work?
    Will be great to hear how you are settling in and if everything matches up to how you thought it would be.

    Hi Dawn,
    Thanks for the welcome; it's nice to be here (both in NZ and the forum that is). So far we like it a lot. I think it would be great to try and share what it is like when first arriving here and compare it to you how you suppose it to be etc. I think the whole experience can be a little overwhelming to say the least! However, so far it seems to be good.

    My hubby started work on Monday and flew up to Auckland very early this morning for a couple of days.... it will be really strange without him here for the first time tonight. Nice though to have a bath and glass of wine in peace

    How is it in Camborne? have you guys settled in okay now?

    No worries- I have been called much worse in the past.

    Working away from home - bet that will be hard so soon after arriving. Hope you enjoy your bath and wine though.

    Camborne is nice and feeling very settled- feels like home already will be even better when OH gets job sorted and eldest can start school.
