    We hit 45 on Tuesday last week, 6 days straight of 40 + and the near on 100 year old record has been broken. It's taking it's toll, about 35 people a day are dropping off the perch due to heat stress etc.....mostly oldies who are alone which is very sad. Some are 'old fashioned' in their thinking and won't turn the air con on to save money or don't seek help when they feel sick as they are sure they will 'be fine'. I've been ringing my parents twice a day and they are only in their mid 60's, just to check. Mum says she will use the air con and send me the bill! :p

    But it's good to hear you lot are alive still!!

    It feels too hot over here while I'm stressing out trying to organise the move and it's not breaking 30. Suck to be in Auzzie.

    Cheers Roff and Farmboy. Yea, the move should be good. Bit gutted about the 7s but oh well, I'm actually passing through Wellington the on 5th, which is when i would have been there normally. funny. So I'll be back in the Red and Black of Canterbury on the 6th.

    Ever since I came back to Auckland after uni I said i'd rather live in Chch. Now I am going to be, and not only that but with a new job (new truck included) and most importantly, living with the most amazing woman I've ever met. In the big picture, things couldn't be better, though on a smaller scale everything seems to be going wrong. //sigh//

    Saw my Dr today for some signatures for my application for passport and i got blood pressure checked, it was 108/60 hence my blacking out when i stand up from the couch / seat / bed. He said I need more stress to raise it, NO I BLOODY DON'T. haha Mum said if I wasn't as stressed as I am, I'd be dead with no blood pressure at all, lol!

    Well, finally have internet at the flat. All settled in and all my stuff arrives tomorrow so it's gonna be a bit exciting to get things sorted out. The flat's awesome. 50m from the beach, 2mins walk to the pub, 3min drive to the best bakery I've been to. Better pies than Hilliers Pies (JP / Cen). These pies are stunning! :) Dangerous really.

    New job's cruisy and interesting, learning new stuff and might be project managing a few things sortly, so yea. All good down in Chch :)

    I watched a NZ news report the other day and I think there was only one city that didn't have rain predicted! Here we are dying in the worst drought in history and you guys are getting the water we need! LOL Then again, North Qld is getting it's more than fair share of water. One end our country is drowning and the other end is burning....it's not pretty.

    The seasons are all screwed and mother nature is paying us back! Sounds like a good premise for a movie!

    Afternoon all. I'm just dropping in as I'm looking to move down there at some point in the near future, (by that I mean this year).

    How is every one?

    Edit: BTW nice outfit SithForceLord.

    Down to New Zealand? That's a huge move for you! One hemisphere to the other! Very brave indeed! I'm sure the NZFF will make you feel wonderfully welcome. ;) :D

    Very nice bro. I've actually got a passport now. Off to Oz this Sunday morning. Boss is picking me up at some ungodly hour and getting back Wed night. Gotta do work Mon / Tue but should get some time in Sun PM and Wed AM to have a look around. Only Sydney but still, nice to get out amongst it finally. Pretty jealous of Alaska / Canada. Robyn and I are really keen on doing an intrepid journey through Borneo... but it might be several months off at least.

    Will Swap you!! It's 40 degrees right now and they are saying 43 for today. Applied for a permit to have a wading pool for the kids, and I suspect by the time we get it the summer will be over!

    40 degrees is bearable as long as the humidity stays down. Nothing worse than being dripping wet and hot (from a certain point of view ;)).

    Mid to high twenties here in the south of Nu Zilind. Not a bad couple of days actually. :cool:
