(Loads of Stephen's family live in Australia - we were laughing about a post on Facebook the other day about some government ruling that is threatening to take money away from low paid Aussie workers ... We were both like "what low paid Aussie workers?". (we run a business in Melbourne still). None compared to wages in New Zealand.... (30% lower here which is why kiwis keep on invading Australia week after week... :) but crazily are not subject to same benefits as an Australian even if we pay taxes etc.)
I love Australia and wish quite a bit we never left Melbourne 10 years ago....)
Scout Jamboree - train left last night and Kieran beyond home self over excitement! Vintage trains (well that is all we have here ;) ) and a 12 hour journey. Met at Taihape this morning where a steam engine took them the last bit to Feilding. He will have a blast at jamboree!
