Congratulations Kate and Geoff. Good decision! Hell we wouldn't have had this brilliant website if you had decided not to stay.

Bubbles sounds good - hope the sun is shining down on you. :D

Thanks, no bubbles but we do have wine. I can't imagine living anywhere else or any other way. If we hadn't stayed we wouldn't have bought land, or cattle, goats or horses...

Life without goats, or lsb, or my lsb friends, doesn't bear thinking about [}:)]

Thanks for having us!

Cheers
Kate

Happy anniversary Kate and Geoff! I moved downunder from the US 33 years ago - husband is a NZer. I had a look around here and he had a look around there before we married, and the deciding factor was..... meat pies - you can't find a decent meat pie in the US!!

Kate, congratulations. Some people love it and others don't :-). Mum and Dad came in an aeroplane full of veterinary surgeons paid for by the NZ government, in 1952. The plan was to stay for the 2 year bond ..... or perhaps that was Dads story to get his new wife, my mother-to-be, to come :-). Dad went back to UK twice and after each time was more positive that NZ was better than UK. Most of the other vets on the plane stayed, too ....

Geez, look what you have achieved in that 20 years, look where you have ended up. [:0]
NZ (and all of us out here in cyberspace) are lucky to have drawn you in (and drawn you back from Spain [;)]).

There are no bad questions only those that are not asked.
