Thank you all for the congratulations and good wishes

Yes, the Chinese were right, 08/08/08 was a lucky day indeed! Don't think we'll ever forget the date....

As for where we're going, we haven't decided yet! Spent 2 months in Christchurch over Christmas 06/07, so feel like we know the place well enough to feel at home pretty much straight away... but every time OH does a job search most of the jobs seem to come up in Auckland.

Reluctant to go there as we'd rather go somewhere smaller, but the truth is that being nearer the diving hotspots makes it more attractive to me! It'd probably be a good idea to go where the jobs are for now, then once we're settled in the country, it should be easier to move somewhere smaller.

We'll see, guess we'd better make a decision yet if we want to go mid October!

Moomoo, can you believe 15th October was the date we were thinking of flying too!? Spooky Are you flying East or West? We want to go West (yes, I know what people say about flying via LAX) so we get double the weight allowance.

Best of luck to those of you still waiting!
