Wearing socks at night as a matter of course during the winter.

Used to wear socks in winter in the UK? Do you mean in bed? If so put them on your partner

I find that wearing the cat is a big help, trouble is he gets grumpy and buggers off if I don't leave one arm out for him to cuddle into.

Haha. I have a former colleague who is married to a Turkish lad. Whilst visiting Turkey, she was sleeping "au naturale" when a quake hit. She is a slim but very WE young lady and she jumped out of bed and was on the street before you could say Jack Robinson.

Luckily, it was a small quake by Turkish standards so no one else was on the street (in the middle of Izmir) and her hubby got her back in before the neighbourhood seen her.

I like wetas.

What I don't like: hearing about fun times at the <insert small town> Rugby Club quiz night- again and again and again and again, and hearing about how pished everyone got, as if it's in any way interesting.

Oh - one other thing - turning on NZ domestic television before turning it off again two minute later. I have now been ten years without a television.
