Talking Der, der, der... 1 WEEK TO GO!

So this time next week we will be all packed up ready for the one-way flight in the morning

Can't quite believe the time has come?!

Had John Mason removers in on Monday and couldn't recommend them enough, great service and the removal men were lovely... ended up taking more than we originally intended but it will be nice to see it at the other side!

Have our leaving party at a local social club on Fri with 200 friends and family, should be a good night but we are also slightly dreading it as know it will be very emotional and the last time we will see some of them for years if ever... still I intend to have a great night and dance my stilettos off with a good few voddies!

Still even though we will miss everyone an incredible amount, we still know we are making the right decision and are very excited to start a new life!

Plus a small sunshine break in LA and Vegas en-route will put the smiles back on our faces ready to greet my parents at Auckland airport!!!
(well thats if my husband doesn't bankrupt us in Vegas! )

Good Luck with everything to do with your move.
We used John Mason 2 and have no complaints with the service or delivery. (No Breakages at all )

Hopefully you will love NZ as much as we do. You will be here before you know it!!

Good luck flowerpot!!!

Have a safe journey, a great break in vegas (you'll no doubt arrive all tanned and make all the locals envious) and make sure you have plenty of tissues for Friday!

Looking forward to all your updates from kiwiland

On your 'ten weeks to go thread' I wrote :-

"I'll be watching your progress with interest because just when you arrive we'll be exactly where you are now"

Ooooh eck! I've only got about eleven weeks to go! Thanks for reminding me

Good luck over the last few days. Hope your trip goes smoothly and we hear from you when you get to "the other side".

If you have time in Vegas you have to see Cirque du sol the show is called KA at the MGM (book before you fly) also the Rat pack show at the Greek Isles is well worth a night out

Enjoy your new life

Get somebody to set up a video camera in the corner for friends to leave a few messages (like they do on X Factor) Could be funny (or sad) when you watch it back in a few weeks / months time!

Enjoy the flight.....

Talking Re: Der, der, der... 1 WEEK TO GO!

Thanks all, wasn't prepared for this roller coaster of emotions but doing OK I think!
We also have something planned almost every day and night until we leave now, I've turned into a bit of a blubbering wino!
Vital - so excited to see my mum and dad, cant believe its been almost a yr and a half! I see a few vodkas coming on (see, this emigrating malarky has turned me into a raving alckie!!!)

Ooo-er... NZ will be HOME, crazy!

Thanks again for all your kind comments, good idea about the cam sir plug, will get my bro on the case!

Good luck to everyone else running round like a drunken headless chicken!
