His daughter babysits our wee boy for us and I get charged an extra $10 if I send back any comments about Man Utd

He certainly didn't appreciate the copy I made of their league cup performance at Milton Keynes

If anyone is coming to Christchurch NZ and needs to store their container full of furniture for any reason, you can always plonk it on our land. We won't charge you a cent as long as you understand we are just helping you out and there's no insurance or anything. We have ten acres and your container will be very safe :-)
Just wanting to help our fellow migrants out.
Bare in mind we live about 50k out of Christchurch though :-)

I can understand his frustrations with Utd as I am also a former season ticket holder.

I was trying to convince him to ship in some Bisto Best Pork but it's not a good seller apparently.

Anyone get woken up last night? Been over a year since I felt a M4+ shake.

Beside that, I hope you are all doing well, despite the rather average December weather so far! Looking forward to Christmas travels to visit the UK, then my mates getting married in Nelson after New Year.

Hi everyone,

Our stuff has been cleared by customs. Whoop! So now we need to get himself's motorbike registered... Crown have suggested VINZ but I wondered if any of you who brought bikes over could recommend anyone in ChCH/Rolleston?

Thanks

Tell the other half any VINZ is as good as the next. Just make sure the bike is pretty standard and he'll be fine.

Thanks Wessa,

VINZ said they didn't do bikes unless they were new and Crown have now told us they only deliver cars to compliance centres... Grr! Guess we'll have to hire a van or something as you won't fit a bike in a fiesta.

Complete Automotive did my bike a couple of years ago. They are on 154 Carlyle street, Waltham. 03 366 6220. I also used Ashley's towtaxi to deliver said unregistered bike.
