It feels a lot better once you get the kids and somewhere to live sorted doesn't it. You can start settling and enjoying stuff again

Happy Aniversary

Hi Poppets,
We arrived just afteryou, and our girls have started school, and are getting used to walking around barefoot!We too have at last found a rental, and we move in on Friday.
I think my impression of New Zealand so far is WET! It has rained here loads, but I am not letting it put us off...I mean we're Scottish, we are used to it!!
People have been very friendly too,we're off out to a BBQ tonight(in the rain) and have been invited to lunch tomorrow....
Have a great anniversary, and look forward to hearing more from you
Alex

If you don't mind me asking what were you staying in before you found a rental house? I only ask because when we come over we will need to travel from Auckland to Wellington and possibly cch looking for work. Were at a loss to know what would be the most economical way of living as a family of 5 until everything from job to rental is sorted.

Hi,
We are very lucky as my OH's company has paid for us to come over, and they put us in a 5*luxury lodge...complete with swimming pool!! I think we are in for a shock when we move to the rental.
I am sorry I cannot be of more help, we met some expats last night who travelled around with their 3 kids, and a dog in a campervan for 3 months!
I guess everyone does it differently, and I wish you all the best with your move
