You are here

Hello!!

So I'm not sure if I really deserve a thread of my own, but sod it I'm gonna have one!!

Just wanted to pop in and say hi to everyone and let you know what I've been up to during my recent VW break.

The reason I needed to take my break was because I am doing a clinical diploma at work and needed to spend some proper time working on that.  Well, I had my diploma assessment last week and it was fine.I certainly think that I was good enough to pass but not sure how good a pass.  The assessment was a 20min chat about what have I learnt over the past six months and a quick flick through my portfolio - this was absolutely fine.  The other part of the assessment was a poster presentation of an audit that I completed over the past few months.  This is the part that I'm not sure how great it was, but like I say I think good enough to pass.
I only have six months left of my diploma now, so it's all seeming quite managable now.

After my diploma assessment we went to visit Niall's parents for a few days - the main reason was to tell them about our planned move to NZ.  We thought that this was going to be very painful and that there would be lots of tears, but it went surprisingly well and no tears.  They could completely understand why we wanted to move and they are actually looking to move to Canada in a few years!

I have also now told my parents about our move to NZ, who both took it very well.  I have also booked to do my professional body conversion exam in June, so I now need to start studying for that.

So NZ is pretty much definintely happening, but it will probably be beginning of next year by the time all the paperwork and stuff is done.  I am now really really looking forward to handing my notice in at work - which I will probably do in July, so not long now! Woo hoo!

So that's what I've been up to over the past month or so if anyone is interested.

Grats on the assessment pass!  *happy dance*

I am glad everyone is ok with your move to NZ too.  That always takes a load of worry off you when it does the most good.

And I am glad you posted!  I missed you.

Great to hear from you, shelloid! Of course you deserve your own thread. I'm sure I wasn't alone in wondering how you were doin'. :> I'm glad your family is happy about your planned migration to NZ. You know I'm looking forward to meeting you, when it happens.

FTR: any and all VegWebbers are welcome to visit New Zealand, for the purposes of visiting shelloid, myself and theo, I'm sure. Let's have us a NZ potluck one day. Hell yeah.

That's brilliant Shelloid, a old friend of mine moved there (south island, I think) about 7-8 years ago and has never looked back. 
Good for you.
