    Default Hot off the press ....

    I got offered the job!

    Have been emailed my contract, and my new boss is going to hand deliver the paper copy to our rental on Friday.

    As you can imagine, am walking on air at the moment .... looks as though ChCh really is going to be a go-er.

    We have a busy day driving and visiting tomorrow, so off for an early night .... catch you guys soon,

    Remember how we were going on about how everything happens for a reason and that the perfect job was still to come for you and would crop up at the right time. Now it sounds like that time has finally arrived.

    Get the kettle on, ready for when Nicky comes down.

    Wonderful! Best of luck in your new job, Lou. Maybe now Jon can afford to have a beer

    WOWWWWWWW!! Huge congrats Lou on the job - well done darling, that must be such a relief for you all x x x

    So when are you heading down to Christchurch? Will e-mail you with the contact details of some good friends of ours who have just moved from Wellie to Christchurch, they are Kiwis who lived in UK for a couple of years and have now headed home with their 2 little 'uns.

    Hope you are all having a fab time, and enjoy your road trip - don't miss out Tauranga/Mount Maunganui on your way down saaarrrffff!!

    Take care, and catch up soon x x x

    Thanks everyone ...

    Still pinching myself this morning as can't believe our luck.

    You're right - everything works out for a reason, so guess fate has been playing his card.

    We leave Auckland today ... not planning on any major sightseeing as I now have to start work 1st Sept, and need some time to settle in Christchurch and start finding a more permanent rental.
    We stay tonight at turangi, and the next stop is Welli. Shall be glad when we arrive in Christchurch for a rest

    Job is for Tait, whom are based north-west of CHCH .. Burnside is it?

    Best get back to that packing ....

    TTFN,

    Lou
