and inflict pain on a child.
my kids tonight watched Autumnwatch - how cool is that.
My husband is a kiwi, and the time we spent over there watching the box was limited due to the annoying amount of adverts every few minutes. Having said that I used to love the Toyota (i think ) ads were they sprinkle the word bugger throughout.
I aquired my Kiwi when I was backpacking in Australia. I then spent a month in Thailand, and by the time I got home he had sold everything in Sydney and had booked his ticket here.
17 years of marriage later we have 3 boys, 1 cocker spaniel and a large mortgage. We are still undecided whether we should live here or in NZ. Unless the exchange rate changes though we're staying put.
Where abouts are you now Helen?
Pizza Man -Sometimes I wish we only had 2 channels here, then the the tv would be off more. Pubs being closed on a Sunday, however, would be completely unacceptable. I remember going out for dinner in Auckland and there being 'dry areas'.
Love the radio though. I download podcasts from the BBC and listen to them on my LSR, which today was 13 miles. That way I think Im getting fit and educating myself!
Where in NZ were you, and why did you come back?
I rang sky to cancel this last week. they tried to sell me 4 separate fricking deals!
Murdoch would be spinning in his grave (if I had my way).
I fell for the heart of a fair Kiwi maiden back in '84. She was from Wahi. I lived in Tauranga (loved it) and worked in the kiwi orchards around the Bay of Plenty. If it was too hot we went to the beach and too wet we went to the pub. There was an excellent work ethic
In the winter I went down to Mot' and then Christchurch before doing another season in Tauranga. I din't really "come back". I went to do a summer a Greece and have not made it back to Tauranga ........................ yet.
where are you from hopetofinnish?
Pizza Man - from Kent originally, now Surrey. We had two quotes 4 years ago when we sold the house, one for Auckland and one for the house we are now living in.
Guess the time just wasnt right for us to move. Instead Im slumming it in a 5 bed, 5 rec 3 bath house, so things have worked out ok. .
I remember when we thought we could buy a beautiful house in Auckland, mortage free, and then 9.11 happened, market went flat, exchange rate fell out of bed................. Never mind, i think life is good no matter where you are (ok there are exceptions) if you make an effort.
We were looking to take a holiday over there next year, but realistically its going to set us back £6,000/£7,000, and thats a shed load of money.
So you still in Greece?
Johnny - when I spoke to sky the woman threatened to put the phone down on me as she said I had a 'tone', I'd been on hold for ever, transferred incorrectly twice, then my previous call had not even been put on my file.
Tone! Grief I nearly had an embolism, I wasnt even rude, let alone used any swear words. That horrible trashy silver box is gone, and even though the new series of 'House' started last night, I shall wait for it to be on box set, hire it from Blockbusters, get a gigantic packet of whole nut chocolate, and have a 'House' fest.
Ok feel better for that........................
