    Default Flying Home!!

    How many of you panicked? LOL

    Today should have been our flight back to the UK!!! We are still here and not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Not sure where all the time has gone but we feel very at home here.

    Neil slowly settling into his job, Jessica very settled at school. We are almost ready for sending off out ITA and then there will be no getting rid of us when we get those blue stickers. In the mean time we have until August 09 with our permits.

    Just wanted to share that with everyone- will do a more detailed post of our first 6 months in New Zealand when i have a little more time.

    Jeez, 6 months. How quick has that gone by ? Seems like only a few weeks ago you were getting ready to leave the UK.

    Great to hear all is well and you are now settled into your new lives. With a bit of luck, it can only get better . Looking forward to your 6-month post.

    I had to do a double take when I saw the title Glad it was cause for celebration Doesn't time fly - as MB says, doesn't seem that long since you left. How you managed those last few weeks with little ones in tow I'll never know. We are feeling it and we have teenagers. Heres to the next 6 months

    It was probably easier with the little ones- they didn't really understand the concept of moving to the other side of the world although Jessica did know she wasn't going to see pepole etc.

    And now it's been another month. Congrats on staying and loving it.
