Default A top a very big hill - Napier

Hello all those living in the Hawkes Bay (beautiful isnt it!) region. Ive just relocated to Napier with t'other half and little man (2 and a bit year old)
I have discovered that our house is right at the top of a hill, so looks like Im going to get some fatima whitbread calfs this year...
Looking for some company in the Napier area, also for play groups, suggestions on child/day care and recommendations for a good pub for when I find a baby sitter.

Anyone out there that fancies a yarn/wine/whine/ meet up, then say hello.

Tat tar for now

Birdey

PS Also on the look out for a RELIABLE car (the hill thing!) for about $2500, keeping an eye on autotrader etc, but if any one is selling, im particualrly interested in a Station Wagon.

Cheers

X Perth Australia X England.
