1. You'll be better off financially in Australia.
2. Cost of living compared to wages is far less. (e.g. the cost of a litre of milk in Australia is approximately half what it is in NZ)
3. Housing is more affordable in Oz.
4. Their economy is far more bouyant.
5. Better quality of life.

The only thing that keeps me still here in NZ is family commitments. If that wasn't the case, I'd be off there myself. Currently, and for the past few years, more people have been leaving NZ permanently than have been coming in, and the vast majority of those who have left have gone to Australia.

Yeah plus isn't the climate marginally better too?

NZ would be great for holidays though.

Yes, sadly you need more than great scenery in order to make a country worth living in.

By that stage I may even be able to meet up with you there and get your impressions at first hand.

Sounds like too much wine, women and song. You should give up singing.

Well, I don't drink and I'm strictly a one woman man. So singing (really badly!) is all that keeps me going

Bloody stupid woman next door and her stupid gob keeping me awake again last night

Although I did learn (and these were her exact words) "I'm not bi-polar. I'm just a cunt"....

You would not believe how much restraint it took for me to not shout "Well you've got that right" at sufficient volume for her to hear....

This is a woman who thinks the best way to calm down a crying baby is by telling it to "shut the fuck up", so in her case yes

Kids AM showing. £1.50 each

Loved it. And don't mind admitting that I got swept up in the nostalgia and was quite teary for most of it

Made by people who understand what a Muppets fan wants from a Muppets film.

Little kid sat by me (must have been no more than 2) left the cinema singing the barbeshop Teen Spirit (complete with Beaker bits!)

Filled my heart with joy because:

a) I witnessed the birth of the next generation of Muppets fan

and

b) that kid may just have discovered Nirvana

You've just inspired me to go out and buy the first three seasons of The Muppet Show. I'm looking forward to many hours of sheer bliss.

Money very well spent. So many classic moments. I really need to see mine again.

I just wish they'd hurry up and release the rest. I'm getting fed up watching Viking pigs singing "In the Navy" on youtube

So jealous, it reminds me of watching it wrapped in a towel after bath time. Kids today just don't know what their missing. I know I'm probably biased but eighties kids' film were just ace. Labyrinth, flight of the navigator, the neverending story, inner space, big, e.t....... just still seem to me so magical. I wish there was a Smiley that looked wistful!
