Although its bitter sweet as I love my job and company I work for, its so exciting and
I am really over the moon! Its my husband's last day too!
So ja, just thought I'd share my excitement...
The farewell's are starting on thursday, with work, friends, my OH family, my family...etc..etc..

Then we go away with friends to Warmbaths for the weekend of 6-8 March, :whistle: then we fly on 14TH March!!! :clap:

 :clap: Those days will be gone before you know it. Enjoy every moment of your last weeks/days in South Africa - you are going to miss them. The goodbyes are going to be the hardest but it will be worth it in the end.

Wishing you all the best and I hope you have a great time at Bella Bella / Warm Baths.

 :angel: Sorry, how rude of me!

 Hi all! 
I've been a while on the forum, reading mostly, but logged in as my hubby  (Onix)  ;) . He got all the info that helped us with "the process" from all you lovely people on this forum- dankie baie!

 I only got my  own "logins" a few days ago .
A little bit of background:
Onix and I have PR and we are both in the IT industry (programmers).
Yes we will be landing in Auckland on Friday 6 March. We don't have any job offers, because most recruiters wants to see you in person  :tickedoff:  But we do believe we wont have any problem finding work?


Hello onix   :blush:

 Hope to meet you all when we are settled in  O0

Congrats and good luck!!!

My last day is March 31st. Gonna be really sad to leave here as I love the company and people I work with...

Really looking forward to getting back to NZ though, so that trumps it. :clap:

I give my last lesson tonight and then in May will begin the task of building up my Studio again from scratch in Auckland North Shore City. :heeha: :heeha:

Well done! And congrats!  :gl: :clap:

Have been here for over 4 years already and we love it to bits.  Living in Auckland, but have also lived in the Wellington region before.  It was the best decision we ever made.  It is hard starting over, but just give it time!
