Default One year on!

Cannot believe where the last year has gone! We are settled in a nice area outside Dunedin and are fairly happy with our lot. Really missing Tesco, M&S and Boots the chemist! Kids are settled in fantastic schools and doing well, both of us are working, we had no problems finding work and making new friends. The wages are not great, the groceries are bloody expensive, as are the utility bills, shoes, clothes, books, vitamins (I could go on!) Lovely part of the world and we are happy (and poor)

Me too, but on the bright side I've really learned to bake well as no M and S. Hope all works out really well for you and your family.

Can't help with Boots but M&S do free shipping to NZ and for vitamins and supplements try healthpost.co.nz. They are around 15-20% cheaper than the high street with excellent customer service.
Glad it's all going well for you, love Dunedin's beaches and pubs
