Default The Packers are here!! Got PR, sold the house & booked flights!!

Yikes!! The packers are here, doing a great job so far! Its all chaos though! My computer is going tomorrow, so last few emails before it goes in its box.

Havnt started Xmas shopping yet!! Will go out on Xmas eve with all the other crazy last minute people!

Good news, we think we have sold the house, have accepted a good offer, so fingers crossed!

Flights to Auckland booked for January 23rd to live in Castor Bay, North Shore. Youngest daughter will start back at school on 3rd Feb, so looks like it is all falling into place at last. It has taken a year to get PR. Also I thought I would email our case officer before sending in the passports for Visas, to be told she no longer works there!! Nice of her to tell us! Luckily someone more efficient seems to have taken over!

Happy Christmas to everyone, and thanks to you all for all the essential information and support we have had through Expats,

Lovely post. I can feel your excitement! Hope all goes well with the packing and good luck with that last minute xmas shopping - don't envy you that!

Just about everyone I've bumped into lately is from West Mids so you feel right at home here
