Can't believe I started this Monthly arrivals thread over 12 months ago!!!
Dewb kindly carried it on when I was in 'virtual silence' and now that Dewb is in the 'same boat' ( so to speak ) I think I'd better keep it going .........so.....

ROLL UP, ROLL UP!!! all you January leavers....I need the date you are leaving and your NZ destination ...please!!

I'm off to Blenheim when my UK property gets rented out which i thought would have been ages ago but my letting agent isnt the most proactive. My visa application went in last week but with it being a talent visa im expecting it back pretty quick providing i actually filled it in correctly.

Hoping to get out towards the end of january

Not long to go for you guys.

You get to do Christmas and New Year with your families and friends and then arrive for an NZ summer. Good timing!

tks BEVS ......

Not soooo sure about the "good timing" . yes fab we get to spend with family/friends def a bonus..... but oh my god christmas and son's birthday on 8th Jan is really getting in the way of my to do list

i am not a bah humbug ( i love the festive spirit) but we are supposed to be getting rid of stuff enough to pack us all into a 20ft container NOT having more stuff delivered by Santa and January birthdays !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS - will sort out the xmas avatar !!

EEEEEEEEAK !!!

Wow only taken 1 week, thats fabulous. We may be there quicker than we think.

Hubby is putting all the Family visa applications in the post today and were told by Working in that they are currently taking 4 - 6 weeks. Planning to leave here mid January.
