MY LETTERBOX... not quite the last thing to go... but DEFINITELY one of the most important! We are leaving No 3 ******** and moving to No 3 *******... HOW COOL IS THAT? We don't even have to change our number.

THE day has finally arrived!


WE have a long drive ahead of us, but I can't wait to go... our new home awaits.....
Being together as a family again.... FAN-FRIKKEN-TASTIC!

Right, until I'm in Auckland tonight and can access a compter, this is it for the day.

Wish us luck on our journey..... LATER PEOPLE!
Today.... has been awesome! We left at around 8.30 am... stopped and took some gorgeous photos of the mountain and Lake Taupo on the way up the island.. it was a gloriously fine day until we got to Hamilton, when it turned a bit cloudy... We stopped at Tirau and met up with Lee-Anne (a fellow blogger) and her husband Colin, and had lunch... I gave her a painting I'd done for her wedding gift. Then on to Auckland... no problems the WHOLE way... we got into Auckland at around 4.30 pm...
"We are now JAFA'S" wooo hooo!!!! I'm a JAFA, I'm a JAFA" doing a little dance....... BIG SMILES!
End of Day: an awesome day, one I have been waiting months and months for! We were in Palmerston North 6 years and 3 months... quite long enough for me! Tis cold down there!
Bring on the warmer weather, thank you very much!
NSV: I feel so good, it doesn't even matter that I am so overweight again! It will come off again! ONCE I'M SETTLED AND BACK INTO A DECENT ROUTINE. So there! nite nite.
