How to move your life from one country to another

I'm really determined to share more of what is my life right now. I think I need to get the words out as a form of therapy, plus I really want to hear from any of you that have "been there, done that" and can share some sage advice, and I'm hoping that by sharing this experience with you it may in turn help one of you too.

So - to get you up to speed - we're moving our little family across the ditch from Sydney back to Auckland. I've never actually lived in Auckland before, neither has my son for that matter, but as a Kiwi girl through and through and with many of our extended family and good friends there, we should feel right at home in no time.

We've also added a house hunt into this little stress pot. Yep, we're actually going to buy a house, a proper family home with a white picket fence and a chimney (maybe). The whole process is obviously new to us but incredibly exciting. After spending months daydreaming over the online ads of all the houses I'd love to own, it will be exhilarating actually standing on all of our potential doorsteps (the first 5 at least), seeing big family kitchens, spare bedrooms, lush green lawns, and other such wondrous things we couldn't afford in Sydney.

We have less than 3 weeks to go. While furniture is getting sold and boxes filled, we still have a bit to do, like book the removalist... For lil Miss Perfectionist Organiser here, I am [just quietly] freaking out. Moving in the opposite direction, as eager 20-somethings, was so different than now. Funny that.

Anyway, I've clearly got a lot to do so better get back to it. In the meantime, if you know of anyone that needs a new car in Sydney, let me know!
