Different user??? Listen geek. No need for smart comments. This is my first time I’ve posted for a long, long time. Purely because I’m enjoying myself too much to be sat arguing in front of my computer screen with prats on the Internet about the good and bad in NZ.

Customs was my last query for some help in shipping our goods.

To me life is what you make it and I am doing exactly that! Making the most out of life! I’ve stopped posting on this forum because I actually started to believe the pathetic bogus comments made on here.

This is not out enjoying yourself instead of sat arguing with a computer screen! You contradict yourself.

What's family life got to do with competing? That makes no sense at all.

But it does when you sit on a beach on a Sunday morning for surf club when second place isn't good enough, or the only ones allowed to do anything good are the ones who are 'born into surf club'

It does when taking your kids swimming means stretching your kids and pushing them (at 7-8 yr old) into doing 30 lengths of the pool...

It does when people try and live their lives through their kids. Don't get me wrong competition is good, but in a fun way

Edited to add *do* instead of *get*

Bring it on. I'd rather have my kids growing up in that environment than seeing all the obese ones I see around here.
People in the UK live life through their kids, I find it really amusing when some idiot tells me his 14 stone, 11 year old kid is gonna play for Man Utd one day. Maybe if they could do 30 lengths of the pool I'd believe them.
