Re: Quality of houses

course it is. I said that.

But it doesn't mean that it's fact just because people have found it to be one way in a particular way that it is actually that way. And things *are* given on this site...

Re: Quality of houses

Yes the quality can be awful

Don't dismiss a place based on what it looks like outside

Don't be convinced by aesthetics

There is a huge variety out there. Don't be put off by older looking...

Well I am a kiwi....so not an expat...when answering this. So ignore this if you feel like! I *don't* have the long family connections with the UK although some of my closest friends still live...

Re: Cost of living v. Average wage

I'm glad bo-jangles said something similar to what I was thinking - 40k seemed a bit of a low estimate to me for a Wellington wage.

I may have missed it, but how old/roughly how old are you? You...

Re: Flights to UK

Definitely keep an eye on Air Asia X both for flights from NZ and from Australia.

Re: Phil Goff surprises me!

Without a shadow of a doubt I agree with that. They always always new it was going to require more than one term to get their work through. That's normal I suppose for any government. But they knew...

Re: Quality of NZ Health

Change your GP, seek another referral. Even if you have to pay more, do it.

I hope your health issues are more of the "worrying because I don't know" variety than anything else, I really do.

Re: christmas monetary gifts

The one thing I would suggest is that they make one transaction to divide up once it’s here. Not little payments that could each have sending and receiving charges.
