Smile Hello from the Naki

Hello all,
We are Mike & Lorraine, and our dog Eddi. We've been in NZ 3 1/2 years now
and we are loving life over here.
We live in Okato, a small township ( I would call it a village) about 1/2 an hour from New Plymouth.
I have been looking at the forum for a while now and finally got round to joining!

Looking forward to hearing from people,
Mrs2spoons

We are from North Yorkshire, a village not far from Harrogate.
I have been to Devon a few times, its a beautiful county.
what made you decide to emigrate here?
We wanted a change of lifestyle, I think most people want that but I have found the reality of living here is a bit different.
The streets aint paved with gold eyyyy??
