Driving on the motorway in Rush hour through Manchester city centre yesterday was neverracking though.. will have to get my confidence back and take it slowley.

And about the cost of things:- It definately IS cheaper in the Uk for just about everything (except houseprices of course).. you should have seen our shopping trolley LOL. Have noticed that even in the short time we have been away, the cost of electrical goods have fallen dramatically!! DVD players for a fiver LOL.

So im guessing a fridge wont cost 3000 GBP then? LOL AKA 6,500/7000 AUD

Gotta love the UK!!

He he.. it's true!!

I know people say "Material things are unimportant.. enjoy the country and scenery instead of worrying about possessions" but life is life, and if my oven blows up, then I will require a new one, I do not wish to pay one third of my salary replacing it!!!!

God you guys on this thread are making me real jealous. We only have three more weeks to endure then were off to Honolulu for 2 days, Vancouver for 3 then sunny scotia here we come. Looking forward to a piece in slice sausage (on plain bread of course) and a decent can of Irn Bru!! And a real guid fish supper. Good luck to those of you who have tried the Aussie/NZ way of life and for those of you who are staying.



Cheeri the noo,

Simon.

Good am Deb: Just by the skin of our teeth methinks!!! Happy to hear you have settled in nicely. Our short time in NZ made us appreciate Blighty.

All the best
