Mary-Anne, you are most welcome. I am only across the water and with a strong wind you could jump over.
My in-laws live in Christchurch and my brother brought them to Aussie land, so they could sleep without getting shaken in their beds, especially the young ones, who were going through anxiety and the older ones were busy in the ambulance and emergency services. All of us are closer in many ways, more than you see on the outside.

Thank you Lenarda!

QUOTE - Since the 19th century, harsh conditions in their homeland have driven small groups of Polish people to emigrate to New Zealand. The pioneering settlers of the 1870s, the Jewish refugees and orphans of the 1940s, those fleeing the Soviet regime in the 1980s – all were pushed out by political turmoil and oppression in Poland. Not until the 21st century could Poles and Polish New Zealanders move freely between the two countries, and choose where to live.
