    Default We've done it

    Hi all,

    As everyone knows its a roller coaster ride but I have secured a job in Auckland and we have our flights booked for Saturady 23 August We both visited NZ during July and fell in love with it. I had two interviews and two job offers, Auckland was the place for us and we are going to live on the Northshore. We have our shippers booked and our cats are coming too. Can't wait to get there now but now we have so much to do and so little time. Thanks to everyone for your advice, hints, tips etc and we are going to live our dream.

    Best regards,

    Steve and Elaine

    Hi both,

    Everything seems to be falling into place for you now. Sounds like you just have all the clearing up and loose ends to sort out.

    Good luck with your new life.

    Hi Motherbear,

    Many thanks for your good luck wishes. Luckily we have done most of the preparation but still seems not enough time now its so close. Its amazing just how much stuff we have accumulated.

    Well back to organising and sorting out.

    Regards,
