Again this depends on where in the UK you are from, the weather here for us is wildly hotter than what we were used to in scotland

we have been lucky to never have had a damp house both rental and built, but most of them are and could be bad for her artharitis, i waswondering the same thing, if sheisthat old how would she be able to get over here?

The heat will ease her arthritis etc.


I think you've made a mistake.
This is the N.Z. forum not the Australian one.

I have read articles on other websites that born and bred kiwis have attempted to live in the UK and have moved back to NZ they miss it that much.

Heck YES!! I wish I'd never heard of the feckless place biggest mistake of my life moving there, cost me thousands it did. Fortunately I managed to suss out Australia before I came back to Britain and was blown away by how modern and forward thinking it is, it was like being a kid in a candy store . As soon as my visa comes through I'll be off there.

If I had known what it was going to be like I would never have come here. Unfortunately we are in the minority in the world of actually having heard of NZ or even knowing where it is.
Same idea too that perhaps Oz may be for us instead of just heading back to the UK. I think Australia will be the place of the future. Could be years ahead but when Europe is in a complete mess and the USA is on the decline, my kids and their kids could well be better of 'Down Under'. Could be wrong ...I'm not always right
