Your fella's ill now? What is it that's so catchy? Sars? Bird flu? You need to put yourselves into quarantine asap. Buy 3 separate houses if they're so cheap,or 1 of you go downstairs with the emergency rations and a decent radio to sing along to songs at Christmas.
Sorry,5am waffle. Gets me every time. We've just played cards again-kids and parents are all sound asleep. If my future employers are reading this-the women played cards,I polished all the drip stands anddid two months shift rotas,whilst referring every child to the dietitian. Confidentially.

Sticking a broom up my arse,as a male nurse especially,might give people the wrong idea about me!!
Yes nights again. Middle one currently,last one tonight. I love em. As long as everyones well,it's ace. Thanks for the pint logo-just what I need to talk more sense. Wish I was in bed. Didn't get any sleep today,bloke was paving his path-which he's perfectly allowed to do at 12.00,havn't been in the 'hood long enough to say owt. Then I cycled to work (if you could see me-you'd know how hilarious a sight that was-my wife and kids actually came to the door to see me off,and all laughed!!),so now I'm shattered.

But much more regulated over in New Zealand - which to be honest is a good thing. I'm the only employee with a qualification and the only one who's a member of the National Association of Estate Agents here - and course and membership paid for by me!! But shall explore how to go about it in more detail before we get there. Dave's a landscape gardener/maintenance man etc. But used to be a publican and chef! Oh he of many (well hidden) talents!

What about you? Jobs? Children etc?

Caroline
SIL is in Levalsa Meor.
Hubby is an electronics engineer - fire and security business, I'm an NNEB, Dip in specific learning difficulties- to teach dyslexic kids, and a TESOL cert. to teach foreigners English. None of my qualifications are recognised in NZ:-((
I already earn a basic salary when I work as NNEB (£6 hr)so the low salaries in NZ won't be a shock to me LOL.

We have 2 kids, boy 20yrs and girl 17 yrs.
