1 year 9 months...time is speeding by

by Ginabridget on 07-04-2010 at 01:51 PM
Wow I've just read my previous blogs and I'm really pleased that I wrote them, it's great remembering all the different things that were happening, how quickly every happened towards the end of our time in England and how strange it was adjusting to life in New Zealand. I'd almost forgotten how our plans/dreams for our life in New Zealand changed alongside the economic climate which was was and still is a great influence on how we live our lives.

Before we left England we planed

3 months in...

by Ginabridget on 07-10-2008 at 10:33 AM
Wow I can't believe that we've been in NZ for three months already, the time has absolutely flown by. My hubby started work yesterday, he's secured a 12 month contract nearby, which will hopefully get his foot in the door to bigger and better jobs within the refinery. My daughter has been at her new nursery for 2 months and is really enjoying it, they've got a pony there called Kiwi that she adores. My son starts the same nursery tomorrow morning, he's only doing one morning a week, that's all

The move has begun

by Ginabridget on 26-06-2008 at 04:07 AM
We've just completed on the house today Yesterday we moved out of our house in Preston and moved over to the mother-in-laws house in Huddersfield, it's all starting to feel a bit more real now that we're living out of our luggage. We're going to be about 15kg over on our baggage for the flight, but hopefully our scales are out in our favour and we'll remedy that when we can use the scales at the airport. We're going to have to do a quick re-pack and anything over the limit is going to

Nothing is ever easy

I've been trying to sell our furniture and other worldly belongings over the last week or so. I thought I was really prepared cos I emailed the local paper and got the lead-times for insertion of adverts, so was quite confident about getting my ads into last weeks paper, did it happen - NO. Apparently they had problems opening the photos for the ads, they let me know about these problems after the paper had gone to print. I took a deep breath and re-sent the photos and prepared myself for an

I'm getting tired of waiting

by Ginabridget on 16-04-2008 at 03:45 AM
I've been waiting for a week and a half for the survey to be sent out to our buyers, you'd think that I'd be used to waiting by now after having spent 12 months to get a buyer.

We're still in half term holidays so I've got two pre-schoolers lurking round my legs trying to trip me up everytime I try to move. We've been to the park and the library today, going to have to find another activity to wear them out tomorrow so that I can get a bit of peace and quiet.
