The End


Six months ago Jeremy and I made the decision to move to Auckland and six weeks ago we handed in our notice at our jobs. After months of planning, of doing up our CV's, saving and packing up our home, this is finally happening.

Jeremy is enrolled in a Bachelor of Business, I got a dream job and tomorrow we make the move. This week has been full of goodbyes and see-you-soons, empty cupboards and our lives wrapped in newspaper and taped away in boxes.

I might be absent for the next week or so as we make the move and go house hunting, so I just wanted to drop in one more time to say I'm excited! One chapter of my life is closing and a new one is about to begin.

I'm looking forward to exploring a new city, finding a home to settle down in, getting stuck into my job and sharing all the ups and downs of this journey with you guys. Thanks for all your amazing comments, tweets and emails, and I'll be back here as soon as I have an internet connection again!

  14. Good luck with the move.
    Two years ago me and my boyfriend moved to London, England from a much smaller city and now we both have jobs we love and whole new life. I remember being scared to death of what was round the corner but everything always works out.

  25. Aucland is a very beatiful place to live. I hope you enjoy living there and make friends. It's hard to leave the ones behind who were close to you, but that's a part of life. Your life goes on...

  26. Hi Amanda.

    What a big change in your life!
    But it sounds very exciting.
    I hope you will have a great beginning of your new life.

    I have not been around for quite a while now. My life has been very busy too because of my studies. But now, I enjoy my summer holiday.

    Actually, I just wanted to tell you about the illustrator Gemma Correll. Do you know her? When I first heard about her I came to think of you. She makes these funny and cute drawings and many of them envolves cats (which was why I thought of you. I know you love cats.) And soon she has a book out called 'A Cat's Life'. Maybe a Christmas present idea for you? :-) I just wanted to tell you about her. I am sure you will love her work too. I made a blog post about her which you, of course, are invited to check out, but I would recommend you to visit her own blog too.

    Kind regards.
