Thank you to all on expats who have sent us good wishes.

We are off back to the UK in just over a week so computer will be getting packed away in a day or so.

Have loved NZ but family reasons mainly, and missing some of what we had over there is taking us back...for now!

Good luck to everyone.

:thumbsup:

Are you going back as well?

We used NZ Baggage Movers, we paid $1460.00 for 2.83 cubic metres which equated to roughly 13 (3ft by 3ft) boxes and 9 individual items such as daughters bike, huge tool box, TV cinema sytem blah blah blah! So it seemed pretty good value and the stuff gets there before we do, they collected 1st week of December and it will be there 13th Jan!

Erm...I have booked a 1 way flight, however, am still thinking about it. Have a few weeks to decide still. seems reasonable - my flatmate has offered me 2000$ for : Laptop, bed, mattress, bookcase, drawers and bike and cd player....so might ship rather than sell. writing this down im thinking wtf was I thinking...

Best of luck Phil, your posts are refreshing. Its nice to read about someone who leaves NZ and is not bitter and doesnt feel the urge to criticise everything about NZ.

Best of luck and dont be a stranger :thumbsup:

Best wishes to you and the children.

You have helped us out so much in answering many of our questions.

Speaking to someone in the same line of work as ourselves and knowing how happy you were gave us the push to do it. Seriously, you may have just ruined NZ by helping the Kato33 clan. :rofl:

We wish you all the best and enjoy coming back home and seeing your friends and family.

Nici & family.:kiss:

Phil and Debbie, hope you all have a safe trip back to the UK. Just in time for another 'cold snap' at the end of January, or so the Met Office claim anyway ;)

We know our daughter is keeping her fingers crossed for a few feet of snow! After seeing the news she will be well disapointed if there isn't any...typical eh!

Thanks for the good wishes everyone...getting excited again now...give it a year and no doubt be trying somewhere else, must have Romany blood in our veins!

Sorry to hear your news but you sound very positive so I'm sure that everything will work out just fine. Everything happens for a reason!:thumbup:

Anyway just wanted to thank you both for giving me such a warm welcome when I joined the site, I've noticed how kind you have been to other new posters:)
