    Default Helping family with the move

    Hi guys

    Am heading off to New Zealand in September 09 with my partner. We've got jobs, sorting out visas, it's all go! I broke the news to my family, who took it pretty badly and there have been many tears. We have a fair few months to go before we do go and I wondered if anyone had advice on how to best help family to come to terms with this before we go eg showing them photos of where we're heading off, practising with Skype etc. All advice would be gratefully received! many thanks x
