OH arrived 31 Mar and has been encamped in a hotel. She's been really busy sorting IRD numbers, banks, etc and appears to have got over jet lag. Cuba St outside her hotel seems to be the main reason for sleep depravation!

How long has she got in the hotel? Does she know anyone here or has anyone helping? If she needs a hand get her to drop me a line as could always help drive her around to look at rentals at the weekend or mornings

Thanks for your response MrsF. OH is moving into a home share on Fri for 4 weeks. She's already bought a car so will be mobile but the offer is very much appreciated. I've asked this before, but where would you recommend suburb-wise, or more importantly, is there anywhere to avoid? Because we'll hopefully both be working full time, before and after school clubs are important. We have a list of schools that offer this facility, so it would be useful to cross refer them

Again, many thanks.

being further north, just before Kapiti, can't really help with area's in and around CBD. and it all depends on what travel you wish to do and what sort of scenery you want to be in
