We are an English / Kiwi family of five: my husband and I and our 3 children 10, 8 and 4 and live in a large family house in a new development in Karaka, South Auckland. The older children are at the local school and youngest attends the local preschool. My husband works in Auckland city and I work in a local hospital. Our children are keen on various sporting activities: table tennis, rugby, cycling etc. They enjoy visiting our family farm (5 minutes away). The area we live in has lots of paths (cycling and walking) and is close to town and countryside. We enjoy meeting people from overseas and have lived in Spain in the past.
