Default Second Anniversary

Where did the time go - I feel like we have packed so much in since being here it feels like we have been here ten years !!
The adventure continues and I am still awe struck dailyby the beauty of New Zealand ( even in the winter ).

Since my one year update we have experienced our first kiwi camping experience (OMG - the heebie jeebie bugs !) like mini helicopters flying in the tent ! , camping kiwi style ie setting up a small village ! Can't wait for summer !!

We have skied in the mountains, water skied mybe a slight exagerration -(4 seconds is my record so far !!) on the lakes.

We have bought a boat , aptly named 'Living the Dream' ( I know its a cliche but what the hell) and looking forward to the fishing , water ski ing and fun in the summer. Days of picnics and falling asleep on the beach after a hard day at work .................bliss

After initially renting and then house hunting for ages we decided to build our own house and I lov eit what a difference it made being able to put stuff on the walls - with nails !! We are really settled here and can be at the beach , in the country or mountains all in easy reach.

We spend time together as a family even though my oldest is getting ready to flee the nest ( yikes) and my youngest celebrates her birthday here again tomorrow and is celebrating with her school friends. She is soooo happy here now and only wants to visitthe UK for a holiday.

I have changed jobs and back doing what I really love and the hubster is still at the same job .

We have a great circle of friends and I especially love the 'girly nights' .

I miss my friends and family in the UK but skype helps and we have had visitors every Christmas since being here. We have friends in Oz who have been here and its brilliant to show them this beautiful country. Friends and family are expected again this year & next !

Yes we have had times when it has been hard and felt so far away BUT
my rosecoloured glasses are still twinkling we are very blessed. I am so,so glad we were mad enough to move here .... long may it continue.............
