Thank you kiwi-child I meant to add that but got bored and went to bed.

My little 'bear' is still scrabbling around up in our loft somewhere I've never been to Aus or NZ but my Dad bought him for me while he was over there. I think he's covered in real fur too

This has to be one of the most bizarre threads I have read in a long long time. How aggressive are some of you to a bit of light hearted humour - jeezusss !

But its not the right type of lighthearted humour!!! It doesnt involve lightheartedly beating the crap out of Australia!!

The conversation went something like this.....Honey would you like to emmigrate to NZ? F off you C not while I have a hole in my A*se! (I coloured it in for effect!)

LOL: You're welcome. They do cull them here you know, so maybe the real fur thing could be a fact

And even though I'm a Kiwi (and proud of it), I can demonstrate how grown up we can be, and declare that not only do I have a sense of humour, but also think Arkon is a pretty ok guy

Now would an Aussie/Aussie lover be as well balanced and mature as I am if that was posted about Australia ?

Or do they have doubts about them selves and feel they have to spend all day on this site telling us how great aussie is ,i reckon they work for the Australian tourist commision .
But in all serious ness i think australia has some great countryside and beaches and i love driving here once out of the cities ,but life in general is boring boring boring .
Living in perth is like living on an island within an island ,and unless one is totally moronic there is no doubt one will go crazy ,just like monkies in a cage .

I posted today that i seriously wonder if Vash doesn't work for the UK marketing division of The Australian Tourist Board LOL

I refer to Perth as being 'a sandpit on the edge of a desert' LOL I mean it even has sand in place of soil for chrissakes!

I thought you had left perth and gone back to UK, dunno why. Anyways. have a great xmas and new year

why are you so concerned? don't you think it would be a bit odd for people to say they love everything about Oz whilst posting on the 'Moving back to the UK' forum?
