Blair and I came to New Zealand from Sydney, in 1996. We love Australia but our families are here, I grew up here and both mothers were alive then so it was really good to be back. We bought this bare block early in 1997, built a house and planted a vineyard. Blair had taken the position of CEO at Telford Rural Polytechnic and it wasn’t until March 2001 that we actually came to live in the house we had built. Well, we didn’t exactly build it not with our bare hands as such, but we had the plans drawn up, jumped through the Resource and Building Consent hoops, employed a builder and paid all the bills.
