Hi y'all. Just a brief update as only got onto internet today and a bit slow as only dial up at the moment. Kids settled into school life already, despite the awful uniforms! Hubby busy at work but not settling in as easy! Me? Tried to settle in the massive house we've rented but had unexpected lodger in the form of a mouse for last few days!
Finally caught it yesterday morning and have released it into the nearby fields, warning it never to come back again! Weather been a bit hit and miss - lovely warm sunshine the last few days but have had the tail end of a cyclone at the beginning of the week. Cambridge, where we now live is a lovely little town but was surprised to find most shops shut at just after lunchtime today (Saturday). Hamilton, the nearest city, is only about a 20 minute drive down the road though. New Zealand reminds me very much of the UK, it's just the odd thing that throws you. I miss Terry Wogan (but got him on internet now), Bisto gravy granules, IKEA, GEORGE at Asda, football & tennis coverage! Oh, I was missing Granny Smiths apples but they've just come into season here. I've just thought of something else - a decent cuppa tea! Luckily they have Gold Blend coffee so I've been sticking to that for now. Anyway, enough boring stuff about me and mine, a few photo's for you for now - computer so slow at mo, I'll probably wait a bit before uploading more.

Sky Tower - did get closer but makes you feel dizzy looking up when you're closer
Auckland skyline by daybreak coming upto the Harbour Bridge - I'm quite proud of this one since we were travelling in the car at the time and didn't slow down!
