We are newbies to Papamoa as well and are waiting for AM LOOLAH to wave her wand & arrange a get together , but me thinks the naughty fairy girl is tooo busy having fun in the Rain bar!!

Hope you are getting settled - it really is beautiful here - even on rainy days send me a pm & we will arrange a meet up - unless Am Loolah manages to get her social diary sorted !!

Excuse my middle of the night response - poorly, sick dog again ...

I think you'll find I did try to organise a meet up (see Meet Up's section) but no newbies responded, that combined with me and 2 of my kids being sick I bailed I'm afraid. But I did spy Mr Bolton1 in Gail & Doug's so I'm told!

Anyway, dog sick, Hubster in hospital, so can't run welcoming committee at the mo, sorry.

Climbed up the mount( it nearly killed me) must get fitter
Hubby has started work today on the wards after a induction week.
Hopefully kids will start school next week once we are in our rental, as we are far out of school zone at the minute

This place is so lovely and the people we have spoke to are so friendly and welcoming it is already starting to feel like home
Thank - you I felt so comforted by your posts! I am also a psycho nurse i have a job waiting in auckland, coming over in oct for a reccy and hoping to move out in march 2010!
sounds like your having an amazing time, where are you living?
