We’re coming home!

As many of you will already be aware, we have decided to return to the UK when our New Zealand visas expire later this month. We have had a great time here, and thought long and hard about what we were going to do, but in the end decided that we want Isabel to grow up knowing and seeing her family regularly, not just every couple of years, and that means returning to the UK.

We know there are lots of obvious questions – where will we live? what will we do for work? when will we be flying back? what will we do with all our stuff here in New Zealand? how will Isabel support her team in the 2011 Rugby World Cup in NZ? We have answers to some of these and are busy working through the answers to the others. We will keep you all posted.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and will miss lots of things and lots of people. We will try to post some of our highlights, lowlights and other musings when (if) we get a chance over the next couple of weeks.
