Default 10 years today.

Yes it has come around again , mad how to goes by , and before you know it , another mile stone has come around.

Well this day in 2005 we landed in Dunedin and haven't looked back,

Still enjoying this life we have made for ourselves , inlaws moved out here over a year ago, We have a New niece in invercargill , my dad passed away over a year ago , my mum and sister finally came out to visit us this year, we he a n awesome time showing them where we lived and play, managed to get to Milford sound and on a beautiful sunny day to.

I'm still in the prison service and my wife has just got a managers job, which she has searched for and finally found a job where the company actually respect their staff and promote people.

Our daughter Martha has reached 18 , passed her restricted , bought our old swift, started uni and doing a Batchelor in visual arts, she loves it.

We are still living out in the sticks, nearly downsized but decided not yet, bought a spa and have placed in on our back deck , and soak in it whilst watching the stars , best purchase yet.

What's can I say, did we ever live in Poole Dorset? Seems like we have been here for a lifetime, in a nice way!

We ar starting to get out and about more on our weekends off, as daughter is more self sufficient now and can drive, big bonus, so missus and I go off to Central otago here and there for long weekends.

So for now, life is good, very good, we are enjoying New Zealand the best we can , have made some awesome friends and met some wonderful people, seen some out of this world scenery , and can't wait to see and experience more of this gorgeous country.

I was planning on writing more, and maybe I will one day? But for now that's us after 10 superb years Dunedin is our place, love it.


Nige, Karla and Martha flew south from Poole Dorset May 10th 2005 .
