A decade in New Zealand April 22nd 2004 - 2014


Hard to believe that ten years has passed since we got off a plane at Auckland International airport with a one way ticket from the UK. We've had ups and downs along the way but mostly ups. The upside being that it was the right thing for us to do. We haven't looked back and although we do miss family and friends we hope one day some of them will come and see us in New Zealand, lots of promises were made last year when we went back and we're holding them to that promise. We were going to go out for a meal but Michael is working away for a few days, there's also a party in the pipeline but the date falls in between two holiday weekends, so that date in pending.
I've spent best part of the afternoon going though a gazillion photographs and I've randomly selected the ones you'll see on the video. They are not in any particular order, I used Picasa as they store all the photos I share on this blog, convenient to find but the video option is a bit of a pain and pretty limited, but hey ho it's done. So since I posted this I've had to re-do the whole thing using movie maker, thanks Picasa for being shite!
So anyway, sit back, relax and share with us memories made in New Zealand.
Here's to the next ten years. 
Enjoy.

  2. Wow, what fantastic memories. Isn't it amazing how quickly kids grow up. My family left NZ for Australia 35 years ago this coming July! Wow that makes me feel old (I was 7yo). All your hard work on the video was well worth it Sue xxRach @ Critter Cottage xxx
