Default Update- what a 2weeks this has been

Well we have been here two weeks tomorrow and I feel like I've been here forever in that short time we have 1) found a beautiful house to rent in Army Bay ( we move in friday hurrah!!!). 2) bought a car 3) I already had a job offer and start 5th july - met the team and they seem a wonderful bunch plus my office is on the 14 level overlooking Auckland and the harbour plus had a second interview for a private research company which went very well. 4) OH had a job offer monday much to his dismay thought he was goner be a kept man !!(just joking) we thought it would take a couple of months to find work. Now we just have to collect our cats on Saturday wait for our container to arrive and we'll be sorted:: The weather up here in Auckland has been mostly fab except for the rain but we can cope with that.Although it's been a hectic two weeks ( so glad I didn't start work straight away ) we are loving every minute of it. I'm sure we still have a few hurdles to cross like missing family and friends but we got them hooked up on skype and have spoke to them several times since we arrived - even my mum and dad who are in their mid seventies and are technophobic!

I wish the best of luck to everyone who is about to begin their new life in NZ and also those that are just starting the process. We will be offline for about 10days until we can get internet connected in the house but will be back on to give a one month update xx

hi glad you made it!
its great here innit?
you sound like you're well organised.

well done for finding a nice house so quickly. we were getting a bit worried when we had viewed a few nasties and couldnt get IN to see any nice ones. then we found one at the final hour! phew!

rain is heavy at times isn't it? but then we get these amazing blue ski, sunny warm t shirt days interspersed!! amazing.
hope your enjoyment continues!

So glad to hear that all is going well for you - totally relate to the missing family thing, I was on the phone to my mum for two hours yesterday whilst we tried to figure out who was going where next so we could see each other - mum might 'pop over' to Hong Kong in November and then 'nip down' to Auckland afterwards

Hope your cats have a great journey over, let us know how they fared on the way
