Thanks Piet and Mick.

Here’s a bit of an update - I have acquired a very nice job in Auckland which will start at the beginning of next year. My family is a little nervous but very excited despite all the friends, family and history which will be left behind. I am back in S.A. now tying up many years worth of loose ends but still hope to get into Sandton for a couple of evening shoots to finish off this assignment. It also recently struck me how ironic my choice was in shooting evening images of my hometown for this contest. Perhaps if it is repeated next year, I’ll do something similar in my new hometown but instead with early morning shots? Let’s wait and see.

When the time comes to get on that plane however, it’s going to sting more than I care to imagine, but at least it will be done knowing we won the RWC :)

All the Best

Wonderful news, glad you have a good job sorted Craig, best wishes for the future. Be good to see you back in the Calendar Challenge if you can do it. (and Bob has a good point there, you'll have two great Rugby sides to support now :) )

Oh Natalie, what terrible news. My thoughts are with you, I hope your father will be ok.

Hmmm and coming to the country you beat ! :D

I live in Auckland and every day we are signing up new South African immigrants to the Auckland library. You will all fit in well and enjoy yourselves I am sure. If you would like any advise or help let me know.

Cheers
Sarah

Thanks Sarah, I knew there was an Aucklander here somewhere :- )
All my family are readers, so we will definitely make a plan to drop into the library at some point. We will be living somewhere on the North shore and are looking forward to it immensely albeit a tad apprehensively.

P.S. - and come to think of it, you’re actually the only country we didn’t beat :-)
