Nesting in New Zealand

When we arrived in Auckland 7 days ago we were homeless & jobless. This situation has now been remedied!

We have rented a beautiful 3 bedroom housed in Mission Bay 10 mins walk from the beach and a 20 minute bus ride from downtown. It's also 20 mins walk from some close friends (Mark & Jen Hird) who have made our transition to New Zealand really smooth. If you're reading this Mark / Jen - Thanks, we simply couldn't have done it without you!

I've also found work which will no doubt be a massive shock to the system! I have gained employment with the Bank Of New Zealand as a "Solutions Consultant"!

J is currently trying to set herself up as a music journalist so watch this space for NME's next big thing!

We are currently running a book on who's going to be the first person to come out and see us in New Zealand. Odds are currently running as follows:

9/4 - Rob / Bernie
3/1 - Matt / Lucy
4/1 - Beaker / Flo
6/1 - My Mum /Malc
7/1 - Bex
8/1 - Tom Threlfall
10/1 - J's Brother Al
12/1 - J's Sister Suzy / Neil
15/1 - Jim and Sarah
18/1 - J's Mum / Dad
19/1 - Beckie Jennings
20/1 - Anna Walsh
21/1 - G-Ham
22/1 - Gavin / Lesley Nunns
23/1 - Jane Skelton
24/1 - Nicola Lipson / Gary
32/1 - One of my Brothers (x3)
33/1 - Mathew / Ami Pickering
40/1 - Dave /Sarah Bowles
290/1 - Catherine Budd ... Are you still alive?

(Note: This has no bearing on who we want to come and see us!!!!!!)

5 quid minimum bet and you can't back yourself - Remember ... "It matters more when there's money on it"!

Don't forget to vote ... new poll now up and running.....
