Default How gay do I feel...?

Just got off a massive call to my sis back in the UK.

The crapness of life here right now - for the first time ever - came boiling out. And I ended up booing (crying, for all you non-Essex) down the phone.

A grown man. I can only draw one conclusion.

I am the only gay in the village

What are you saying? New Zealand is crap? (we all know that..but there's always the wildlife...I saw dolphins in Wellington Harbour 3 weeks ago)

Or you've just realised that you are gay? (Is there a better place to be gay than NZ?....And I include Holland....)

Or is it the first Summer Xmas? Shit, isn't it?

New Zealand isn't perfect by any means, but you could do a lot worse.

yeah, wrapping Christmas pressies in my shorts is un-natural.
Maybe we're all realising that NZ is just an annexe to the Valleys???
Lots of things in common between here and the Land of Our Fathers,,,, or am I just mad?? BTW, me mother's parents were Welsh so I should be able to adjust to life here..................................

Hmmm.....Hamburg maybe, but Holland isn't as liberal as some people think...

Amsterdam is ok for liberal types, yes the rest of Holland is quite conservative.

What's wrong with a grown man crying?! (obviously nothing else you wouldn't have posted about it on here, lol!!!)

There's nowt wrong with showing your emotions - it isn't a female exclusive zone - and in my humble opinion it takes more of a man to be open about his feelings, so good on ya.

Sorry to hear you're having a rough time of it Andy, you're such a nice, genuine guy. Am sure it'll all come right for you. There's always a beer in the bar fridge with your name on it. Chin up mate.

(Toni please check Andy's wardrobe for pink shirts, shorts with flowers on, etc )

Too right, I've had a public blub here that I wouldn't have dared manage back in the UK - really get stuff out of your system.
BTW< why are we all still up, good Kiwis would have been in bed 4 hrs ago!!!

Completely agree!

Mate, blub all you need to. I know you're happy to be gone from Essex (rather a large exodus from there these days, it seems ) and it's perfectly normal and natural to miss friends and family. Friends you can make here, the Kiwis I've met are all extremely friendly and approachable. Family... well you can't replace them. Of course you'll miss them.

Come 'ere you!
