Change -


It never ceases to amaze me how quickly things can change. Only a few weeks ago, every thought, phone call, decision, conversation, list etc was revolving around 2 little lives that may have been joining our family. Now, within about 2 weeks, the decision has been made that our little family of 5 will relocate with Pips work to New Zealand!! Auckland here we come!


Now it seems, just like before, every conversation, phone call, list, email etc revolves around this move! There is just soooo much to do and considering we fly out Dec 28, there is just not enough time. How do people do this often? It is so intense. I mean moving is one thing, but 3 kids, a dog, 2 vehicles, a house and 5 passports is seeming a little overwhelming to say the least!

Despite all the craziness though, we are all so excited - and a little nervous!
It will give Pip the chance to really shine and show his full potential, the kids to experience an new culture/lifestyle and catch up with some cousins who live in NZ. We can do some exciting travelling and see new things and with any luck we'll get to pop over to Samoa (a little dream of ours) since we're in the neighbourhood!

So much to do, so little time!
Have you done a big move overseas? Got any good tips for me?
Done something fun in NZ you could recommend?

  1. WHOA! that is big! i Love NZ. in fact we are heading there for a holiday next week but mostly sticking to the south island. i went twice as a kid too and just loved it - it's so easy to be outdoors there it's just so stunning. Congratulations and i look forward to seeing how it all goes via your blog!

  2. Wow, that is exciting. And moving is so stressful no matter what that it's probably best if you can do it quickly and get it over and done with.

  3. Ooo how exciting... and also totally overwhelming. I honestly don't know how people move around regularly, but I guess like anything else in life, you just learn to adapt. Good luck with all the prep for the big move... pity it has to happen so close to Christmas, such a crazy time of year at the best of times xo

  4. Ooh, big news! How exciting for you all. Good luck with the packing...no advice, just head down and trust it will be over soon ;) xx
