    Were you down on the dock, shouting, 'Welcome home?'

    Not quite but had to make a trip down to the shippers with some documents, and confirmed ship is now alongside Auckland. Containers due to be shipped off on Wednesday.

    Only concern at the moment for them with regards possible delays is the sword that I have shipped over ......(Royal Naval Officers sword), but they say it shouldn't be a problem....I hope.

    Hi kejktfc

    I checked this mornng and was delighted to see that it has docked. We saw our agents last Friday to pass on the paperwork so here's hoping. It leaves Auckland the end of the week and should hopefully be in Lyttelton Sunday! Sunday will be spent watching the harbour there!

    Hope you get your stuff delivered soon.

    How I can't wait to sleep in my own bed, and have my own sofas to lounge about on...................hope it gets off on time for your delivery as well.

    Been interesting tracking it from the UK especially given that I have done the journey myself via sea. Bit sad but I kept checking the required SOA (speed of advance) just to make sure it was still viable to arrive on time......

    That's all part of the fun! I love watching the map on the aeroplanes and UPS tracking ... in an age where all take worldwide products and travel for granted I think it's great to pause to consider where exactly things pass through

    Cleared customs today, they allowed the sword through, and now being delivered on Wednesday. Wednesday is looking to be a very busy day...... I also have an job interview that day as well.

    Good Luck with the interview. We have cleared customs but the MAF inspection still needs to take place. We are provisionally booked for next Monday.
