Re: Returning to NZ after 12 years, any tips?

We returned home after 9 years - somethings haven't changed, somethings have. You couldn't pay me to live in Auckland - we're in Dunners (which is lovely and the weather is suprisingly good). Life...

Re: Finding after a month in the uk

We didn't do brunch regularly in the UK mostly because it was just Greggs type fare or a fry up. Literally asked for hollandaise on my eggs at one cafe in Loughborough (where we lived at the time)...

Re: Finding after a month in the uk

Aldi has really good vege, meat and dairy from the EU. If you don't think too hard about the production cost cutting, human and/or animal welfare. Kinda wish Aldi would set up shop in NZ but I...

Re: Finding after a month in the uk

We've been back in NZ about 10 days and the jet lag etc has worn off. The price of food if you do the exchange rate is relatively comparable according to the husband. However, just on a numbers...

Re: Living in Waipawa, Hawkes Bay

Should say that you would have to commute by car as I can't imagine the bus service being very frequent and they have long since closed the rail links from Central HB to Napier/Wellington.

Re: Living in Waipawa, Hawkes Bay

I grew up in Hawkes Bay. It's not that far if you're used to commuting - however Waipawa is very much the small town NZ. If you're up for that it's fine.

Re: Childcare issues may prevent a move

Good thing tho' your childcare bill will be significantly cheaper in NZ than paying for it in the UK. The cost of childcare here is horrific as my colleagues daily remind me.

re: NZ is as racist as --

The irony of labelling an entire people as racist has passed some posters by I see. Not all New Zealanders who live in NZ are racist. They're just not. Much like most of the UK aren't insular, your...
