Just stumbled across this post today and wanted to say how much I have enjoyed reading it. It's been pretty addictive and my housework has had to take a bit of a back seat (oh what a shame). As someone who is considering emigrating to NZ it has been a real insight for which I am grateful. Like others, I am keen to know how the story unfolds further. Having reached it to page 14, I thought I would know how it all ended, but like others I dangling on a thread. I am not much of one for reading books but this had had me hooked. Well done you for sharing this, but please hurry up and let us know what happens.

Thanks, Lizaberry

This is a great story Ian and from your avatar it looks like you ended up in Brisbane so who knows how that happened!

All the best mate. You sound a decent fella and it looks like you had your fair share of problems to deal with, but in true expat style you overcame them all

Keep up the story and I wish you and yours all the best mate

Started reading Ian's story on the other website before it disapeared, so have been waiting for the end for quite some time. Also, what happened to Ben, is he living with some guy somewhere or is happy in the bosom of his family ?

Come on Ian pleases do tell.

Hi Guy's

So sorry I have not up dated for a long time, I will get round to it very soon.
At the moment I'm sat in a night school class trying to get my head round operating budgets

Load has happened (4 years worth) and even the hardest of you will be shocked and stunned on how we were treated, I could write a book on it.........oh I am

Thank you, L
