No, but I will.

Re: NZ - kids' heaven or kids' hell?

Personally, I think that's one of those sweeping generalisations about the UK that I completely don't understand. It's all about mind set and parenting. Influenced by upbringing perhaps.

Re: The state of the GBP

Sainsburys!:D The lady who served me did tell me at the time that the markets were doing funny things that day. There had been a big movement in the Aus & NZD overnight apparently.

Re: Justice for Nia?

In most marriages where the family lives in a private owned residence, they are co-owned and jointly paid for. Thus the mere exaggeration of "the one that you paid for" really riles me. Maybe I have...

Re: The Coromandel or the Bay of Islands
