Changes are afoot in the Oh Waily household.  Big changes.

We are no longer going to be Wellingtonians, or Lower Huttians for that matter.  This time next week will see us packing up and heading north.  After a seven hour or so car journey we will arrive in our new town and have travelled from A to B.

I’ll be sorry to say goodbye to Wellington.  We’ve made lovely friends here and have enjoyed our time in the city.  I can highly recommend it if you are looking for a great city to live in.

But the rest of 2016 will see us become more familiar with the Bay of Plenty.  There should be quite a few field trips in the offing as we see what this new-to-us region has to offer.  As this is the area that some of our family lives in we are familiar with quite a bit of it, but by no means all of it.

We will get to know the locals, like this chap – Tangaroa.


And hopefully spend a bit of our time here.


I’m picking that not only will our location be different this year, but so will our regular home ed days. I feel a new vibe coming on this year, so I will write more on that once we are settled in and most of the boxes are unpacked.

In the meantime, wish us luck, we’ll need it to get through the next two weeks without going potty.


For those unfamiliar with rugby in New Zealand, the title of this blog post refers to the two local Super Rugby teams for Wellington and the Bay of Plenty.  Oh the quandary of who to support. 😉



Hurricanes or Chiefs?

  1. I had somehow missed this posting. I have noticed a few Hamilton pics lately and have been wondering what’s been going on. I had no idea you’d shifted to Tauranga. If you ever are passing near Te Kauwhata look us up. We’d love to see you! Could get Meredith over too. 🙂

    • Sounds like a great plan. I’m sure we could do with a few more field trips over the hills. 🙂
      I’m sure we could tempt Meredith with the lure of a decent hot choccie!

  2. Good luck with the move, hope it all goes well for you all! Go the Chiefs (Hamilton was our first home in NZ, still got a soft spot for those cow bells…).

    • Thanks Karen. I have my fingers crossed that it will go smoothly.
      The other half did his Uni time in Hamilton, so it’s not a stretch to shout Go the Chiefs for us either. Not so much the cow bells though. 😛
