Rob, mate, I'm afraid I can't help with those questions, but when you sold the block, I'm afraid you left yourself legally open to being called a JAFA and a townie :D

Congrats by the way! How far into town are you going? Not an apartment or anything hideous I presume?

I have dreamt about it, and it's always a nightmare[}:)] :p
It would make sense to live in town, because of the milage, but I couldn't handle neighbours, that fills me with horror..

If toast always lands butter-side down, and cats always land on their feet, what happens if you strap toast on the back of a cat and drop it?

1) Wearing gumboots in the city os not cool
2) Electric fencing is a def. no-no
3) Holey jeans are cool. ..city folk are wearing them
4) No nakedness unless you want to get yourself arrested
5) Yes, there are all sorts off dif. coffee you can buy thesedays.
6) The blues? Nah...stick with Counties
7) 1/4 acre is still a lifestyle
8) JAFFA? Oh yes mate, you will be one of those

Where are you moving to by the way ???

Do all of the above rob as you were but go do it in a lift, go see my 'things to do in a lift' thread, i think that would be so much fun!

Of course if you do miss the old block there's plenty of LSBers in that area would love to have you come help!

well I think that you should come here forthwith and do some fencing, I would hate for your tools to go rusty, and yer want to keep yer hand in of course!

nearly 4 years ago we moved from a 1 acre block in Otaki, back down to Porirua (Whitby) we had only been in Otaki 1 year and I missed the 2 kids we had left behind and hubby was sick of the travelling into wellington every day for work. well we HATED every minute. The street was full of snobs very unwelcoming. Didn't see the kids more like we thought we would. Houses seemd way way too close, it was a nightmare and within 5 months our dear agent found this place and we were back here in a shot.
I wish you luck and hope that it works out for you. You may really enjoy the change, and if you are thinking of heading to Nelson later well I am sure you will be fine. Nelson is a lovely place.

this is the thing we have to be careful about as none of them know what a main road looks like, we would still like a good sized section around us, will miss our own meat though, the stuff you get in the shops is rubbish, the butchers in Pokeno looks good, we just had a beast killed so long time yet.

You will still be able to have your own meat killed for you. You will just have to buy the animal 28 days before it is butchered, from a present neighbour, and go out each day to look after it.

Yes Rob I have, although not by choice and I'm assuming that your doing it because you want to.

I took my gumboots, overalls, chainsaw and Swandri. I resented that I couldn't walk around the house naked unless the curtains were drawn closed and I wore my holey trousers at weekends and couldn't give a stuff what the neighbours thought. As it happened they thought I was eccentric as I took to all the trees with the chainsaw. They had never seen the likes. Doubt you will have much need for the electric fence but suggest you keep it along with the wire strainers and fencing pliers for when you move back to the country :)

Good luck with your move - and for whatever reason your doing it for.

Cheers,
Ronnie

Ronney,
yes is our choice, we have had land for 13 odd years and just want to try and see, the thing is i cannot see a problem walking around naked, better put clothes on when doing the lawns i guess
