Default What do I do now!

My wife gave the nod today!! She's said yes to emigration.
Which gave me a panic attack - it was all very well dreaming about it and planning for it but now it looks like I'll have to do it for real - nightmare!
I have fancied leaving the UK since I worked for 10 months out of Perth, Oz, in 2002 but Mrs Woodlea was never keen on Oz. Then a couple of years ago she said she fancied NZ so I had a look into it, got the points etc, and the permits and then went for a recce over Easter this year and we all loved it and she finally said YES today! But its a bit different to ACTUALLY emigrate!

Oh yes it is. What do you do? Have you decided on a location?

Oh well you'll be ok, stop worrying it's easy getting here, it's just the settling in and making friends that's traumatic. Come see us we are very normal ... honest
We love Rangiora and at the mo are in Ashley but are on the move again, only in the area though so when you land get in touch

I'm an offshore surveyor - so my home is just my base really. I regularly work with Kiwis around the world and when the jobs done they go back to sunny NZ and I go back the icy Scotland! Always been jealous.

Thanks Sky,
That means a lot. BobK has given me a few tips too - he's moving to Rangiora this week I think.
Bob.
