well summer here has been a bit strange so people tell me (first one for me here) it cant seem to make up its mind what it wants to do, but its still warm even when it rains, but as I left the uk in winter and arrived almost as winter struck here, it is nice to be warm

i hate having cold feet

Hi Claire, welcome aboard!
Well, it's only morning here and so far I have had a coffee and read emails from my family in UK, done a minimal amount of work (I dont really get going until at least midday!) and now I'm on here to see whats been going on since i was here last Thursday.
So I'll tell you about my day on Sunday.
Went for a drive with hubby and 2yr old daughter. We live just north of Auckland and love going out for drives, still exploring the area after 4 years.
We headed west and drove for about 30 minutes then stopped at a scenic reserve, parked up and wondered off into the woods. There were 3 other cars parked but we didn't see another soul whilst on our walk. We came across a small waterfall and stopped there for a while. It was a baking hot day but under cover of the trees it was perfect. Daughter spent ages picking up stones and throwing them in the water, and eventually when she had time to get her bearings she went in for a paddle! I knew she would, it was just a matter of time. I went in with her, the water was crystal clear and cool. After a while we walked on along the path, just taking it all in, the deep blue sky, huge trees, wild flowers, massive butterflies etc.
After a while we carried on with our trip, cut across from west to east, through some beautiful scenery, and stopped at Warkworth for a browse. Off again and next stop was Puhoi, there is a lovely cafe there where they make cheese. We had a glass of wine and sandwich, brought some cheese to take home, had a walk round the lake and then set off for home.
Fantastic day

I signed up for swimming lessons yesterday - I start on 12 February I'm a bit nervous but mostly I'm excited

I've been saying for years that I'll do it but it's only since I came here that I've got the incentive.
