    Congratulations on getting the job. A big step in the right direction.

    We have a few people down in Wellie so I hope someone will be able to give some help with your location query.

    You lucky thing - I would love to live in the Wairarapa but works not there for me - I am so jealous.

    Pretty much all the little towns in the Wairarapa have a little centre where you can get all your provisions. Unfortunately I dont know anyone who lives there full time, a few of my friends have holiday baches/cottages in the area and I have visited a number of times and just love it.

    The great thing about the area's is you can commute to Wellington Central in an hour or so and there are trains taking you up that way as well.

    Again I am soooo jealous of you - congratulations on the job offer

    The school have been so supportive from word go. As have the High schools in the area in regard to taking our 17 yr old son. Just want to be there now.

    Default sounds fantastic

    What a way to start the new year. sounds great. Had you already planned to live around this area or was it solely down to the job offer?

    Reason I'm enquiring, is we are visiting the Wellie area in early February for the first time as we are hoping to move that way eventually.

    Good luck to you all

    Thank you.

    We wanted to live in Hawkes Bay, Hamilton or Wellington. Kathy knew that it was always going to be hard to get a teaching job in Napier/Hastings and we though we were going to go to Hamilton. This offer came out of the blue and Kathy jumped at it. She doesnt like wine would you believe !
