2) Windy Wellington is not just a nickname for this place - it blows people over!
3) Tall Poppy Syndrome (not standing out from the crowd) seems like an important phenomenon to understand here in daily interactions.
4) Learn to like rugby, or you're buggered to see sports without having Sky TV!
5) I'm living healthily, but have substituted my social activities in the UK, for healthy(less social) things here... need to change that round in the next 3 months!
THE BEST EXCUSE FOR PUTTING ON WEIGHT EVER.... came on Wednesday evening when I went out for drinks and a bite to eat, with a person who shall remain nameless for now... As we were talking about life in NZ and the interesting things about life here, I was saying I had become more healthy. My friend said she felt healthy but had put on weight since getting here... her rationale for this was that it was so windy in Wellington one time the wind blew her over, so now she is a little heavier she hasn't fallen over since! Brilliant eh!?
EARLY MORNING FOOTBALL - Last night, (Saturday), I watched the Southern Hemisphere version of the 6 Nations Rugby tournament, (4 Nations) - which took until about midnight, then I went to the pub about 01:00 to try and watch some of the English football. I managed to watch half of the early game, then was able to watch the Manchester City and Chelsea games at 02:00! As the clock struck 04:00 and I was awake enough to watch the Liverpool game, the pub closed! I was not impressed! I almost went to my 24 hr gym to see if the game was on the TV there... tough times!
Ok, next week is the NZ National OT conference in Hamilton, which I will be going to, so will have plenty of stuff to share! Networking here we come!
Regards from New Zealand!
