    Please do, you know how we like a 'new arrivals' story . Glad to hear you've arrived in one piece - just in time for winter. Hope you settle well and everything moves forward for you now.

    Looking forward to hearing about your progress downunder.

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

    Hi there folks,

    Thanks for the welcome greetings!

    Well we are finally getting over the jet-lag and are happily settling down for the time being with relatives in South Auckland.
    We went to sort bank accounts and IRD numbers yesterday hoping to sort schools out for the kids today!
    OH starts work next Monday, I start the week after...............its all go!!!
    I will keep dropping in from time to time and give you a full run down as to how we feel in a couple of weeks once we are in a 'normal routine
