Default Auckland . . . see you in July

Hi everyone,

I'm Laura, 31 years old from North Wales. I've been offered a permanent job at CMDHB in Auckland and I will be moving out there on my own at the beginning of July. Handed my 3-month notice in at my current job this week and now everything is suddenly starting to feel real . . . and a bit scary! I lived in Auckland for 6 months a few years back and totally loved it, so I'm hoping it will be just as amazing this time round. As I am coming on my own, one of my main concerns is that I might be lonely if I struggle to meet people, so I would really love to make some friends on here so that I can meet up with you when I get out there in July. I've already seen some meet-ups being arranged on another thread, and I think its lovely that so many of you organise get-togethers.

Everything is happening so fast! Only accepted the job last week and now my notice is handed in and my starting date is 16th July! I'm a bit concerned as to how I am going to manage getting everything done within these 3 months - visa, packing up my house (rented), selling my car etc etc . . do you think everything is achievable in this timescale from your own experiences?

Looking forward to chatting with you, and hopefully having a welcome drink with some of you in a few months!

Laura
