Well done guys. I know it's been a long haul for you too.

We're 17 months but it doesn't feel like it.

Congratulations!  I have often sat and thought about this emigration thing and said to my OH that if we knew back in SA just how hard it was going to be, we probably wouldnt have come but now that we are here and have survived the 1st year, it is a real achievement and can only get better.  Sometimes its better not to know everything you are going to face and just deal with it as it comes along.  it has been said here over and over again that emigration is NOT FOR SISSIES  ;)

 :congrats: Awesome news guys. Well done!

I can hardly believe that in 2 weeks time we will have been in NZ for 6 months already.  :heeha:

Time sure does fly when you are having 'fun' (busy, but enjoying life in NZ).
