Thumbs up Re: Introductions - please post here

Hello. We hope to come out to NZ Chrch area, around june/july 07. (with the dog) Once house has sold. Comming on VV. Hope to get jobs and rent place to live short term, if all goes well. Will then apply to stay. Leaving Married son and daughter here in uk. No Grandchildren yet so less to leave behind.
Cant wait. Apprehensive but thats only human. Kids both think it's agreat idea and they are backing us 100% they are already thinking of the holidays they can have with us in NZ.
Any advice from anyone who has already made the move will be most welcome. Especially anyone who has moved to the south island. We are both late 40s and been married 30 years. Selling up for a better & less stressfull life.
Lynne & Gaz Smith. Markfield in Leicestershire.
