Re: Coronavirus

Sorry but yes!

Re: returning to UK after a long time in NZ

I forgot to say that we enjoyed our time in NZ, it was a great experience and we are really glad we went.

We have no regrets about moving to NZ and none about moving back.

Re: returning to UK after a long time in NZ

We moved back in 2017 after 13yrs in NZ.

What made us happy we'd come back? .....
