Default We have arrived in New Plymouth!

At last we have arrived in New Plymouth after starting the emigrating process 1 year ago. Been in NZ for just over 2 weeks now and are throughly enjoying it. We have just moved into a lovely house with great sea views, brought a car and are just settling in nicely. Already have met some really nice people.
I start work on Monday and OH is still searching but I think he likes the idea of being a house husband!!

With all the negative stuff on here recently I just wanted to say something positive!

Cheers
