Default Well, we're back!!!

In rotten old Illinois.

Can already feel jet-lag hitting after 28 hours of travelling, and will be pretty absent (probably) until Monday, when I find out if I'm going to get made redundant or not.

I did this yesterday / Thursday / whatever day it was (it's the Auckland Sky Jump).



And I even have the T-shirt to prove it!

Awesome time had by all, a couple of job prospects, and we got our ITA while we were away, woot!

Right, I'm off to collapse now and try to get over my jetlag. Strange to have a day lasting 41 hours, but still...

Would love to live as close to Welly as poss, but finances will decide that, as well as job offers. Those are still rather up in the air right now.

BTW best of luck on the financial front - it can all get a bit hairy out here if you dont have "something by you".

So thats where you were!- You're brave, I watched someone do it and decided I didn't need another tee shirt
We hung around Auckland motel on Thursday morning waiting for you hope you were ok
We're jetlagged too! Trying to catch up on the BE news. Spent yesterday in bed sick but need to take cheque to rental agent so we can move in this week!
