Ah Zoe, would definately have been up for a meet up but your too far away... we are on the Hibiscus Coast... too far for you to travel I reckon!

Visited Napier on our road trip a few back... lovely place! If your ever this neck of the woods give me a tinkle

I'm probably a bit too far away in Rotorua (couple of hours I reckon) but if there's somewhere in the middle I'm more than happy to travel and 'do lunch' one day

Hi Lisamct, it would be lovely to do lunch' at some point! Hows it all going??


Skybluestu, we must have got a really quick officer! You will be fine, let me know when you are here, we can meet up if you like.
Molly was absolutley fine after the flight. She was just sat in her crate, looking fed up (that's her default facial expression though!) She loves walking near the sea and being marched up and down the hills!!
We got all our stuff at the beginning of the week, so it only took 8 weeks in total.
Just a job to find now...

Its going good so far, almost finished orientation at work and the dreaded 5 day week so will be on to my 3 long days soon. Getting settled into my house and finding my way around, just waiting for my boxes to arrive now so it'll hopefully start feeling like home rather than living in someone else's house as it does just now.

We'll need to find a mid way point and do lunch, how about Taupo or is that still a bit far from you?

I found the bit without any stuff the hardest, but then again all we had was an airbed and a dog crate...

I drove to Taupo about 2 weeks ago! That would be fine for me when are you free?

I only know the lake and the hospital so probably as useful as the petrol station!

Hi Zoe. I moved here in December and am living in Havelock North. I am working part-time but could meet up for a coffee some time. Do you have any children? I have 3 boys under 7.

Hi Joanne,
Lovely to hear from you. I would love to meet you, whenever is good for you.
I don't have any children but I'm a primary school teacher, so yours sound great!

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I'm probably a bit tied up next week as it's my last week at work before my contract ends. We could meet up in the school hols?
