    on Apr 18, 2010 in England Flights
    Starting to get a little concerned here me dears. I’m due to fly back to the UK via Los Angeles on Friday night (NZ time). However… as you may all be aware, there is a bit of a kerfuffle going on up in the skies, courtesy of a chappy name...
  • Telly TomfooleryNew Zealand is sport mad. Which is a good, good thing, as I can quite happily nurse a few beverages on the sofa watching pretty much any sport… even found myself watching a little bit of Netball (don’t knock it… it’s big busin...
  • Overqualified… And Over Here
    on Apr 12, 2010 in Jobs
    It’s not like me to be big-headed and blow me own trumpet… but I seem to be struggling to find my niche in the NZ job market. I was turned down from a job last week due to them believing I was ‘too’ technical (god forbid) and...

  • The Biggest Footy Match In Oceania
    on Mar 30, 2010 in Sport In General
    Like most Englishmen, I can’t go long without feeling the need to watch a live Football match… and when I say ‘Football’, I mean real Football; ‘Soccer’ for those uneducated readers of this blog! On Sunday, I was i...
  • Providing The Collar And Cuffs Match
    on Mar 25, 2010 in Jobs
    Since my last posting, yours truly has attended his first job interview in Aotearoa. The job search is definitely moving up a gear, which can only be a good thing. What with the British Pound currently paddling to stay afloat against the Kiwi Dollar,...
  • The Waikato Chiefs Violin Concerto 1
    on Mar 22, 2010 in Rugby
    Just noticed, and so felt inclined to post… Why does the Waikato Chiefs Super 14 Rugby team logo, show a crash test dummy holding a violin to its chest?!
  • Thirst Quencher SupremeRighty-Ho. Now I’ve been living in NZ for nearly a month (Jeez… that long already?), it seems a good time to start posting about things which I love about this beautiful country. Those things, no matter how trivial, which aren’t fou...
