Cool I'm here!!!

Hi all

I arrived Monday am, rather a little worse for the 26 hours of travelling, but survived.
Sorry I haven't been online, I don't have any net access here and I'm not falling into the 6 pounds (no pound sign!) per MB on my UK mobile.

I have somewhere to stay (it's right on a main road) and I can't wait to find somewhere quieter, I have a job and an NZ sim card so far...

House hunting is going to be a nightmare as agents aren't open on Saturdays in Palmy (well 1 is but they don't have much to offer) and they also don't take clients to and from properties, so without a car/bicycle, I'm going to be doing a lot of walking and a lot of bribing my new boss for time off during the week.
I only have 3 weeks to find somewhere...no pressure.

But all in all, I'm thrilled to be here, it's not been too cold (electric blankets are a godsend and I'm already eyeing out ones to buy for our rental place), only one baby-shake and some super friendly work mates and good locals!
Can't wait for my hubby and baby to arrive, I'm over being a bacherlorette already and it's been < a week!

Thanks again to everyone.

Locals in Palmy give me a shout and we'll taste some Tui/anything sometime.

How ya doin' ? Welcome, glad you arrived safely and are enjoying it so far. Could you find a cafe with free wifi and look up TradeMe property for a look at properties for rent ?

Our local libraries provide 30mins free internet use on their computers, so your local library may be a good place to go whether you can get wi-fi or not.
