It is good to see that you got through it all okay mate. Did you do the same as I when purchasing this place. Checked out how far above sea level and also that it was on the high point of the area as well as no bush surrounding that could be a fire hazard. Winter is setting in with a vengance I have developed a cold and feeling the below twenties temps severly I can tell you. Now all those that where complaining about the warm weather are now getting their own back on me LOL. Yep rugged up already and the only concession is the thongs. Mind you the slippers came out real quick and yes I do wear them out shopping locally. Think that the cyclonic weather might be nearly over mate so now for you to enjoy burning all those logs you chopped earlier on hey. Well the holiday season is nearly over and only got to get through the Anzac week end next week then all back to normal. Do you have the same problem as here when the shops close for a day. There is just utter panic the day before and the one after. Wonder how they would have got on years ago when they shut for the weekend and early closing on a wed.

Afternoon all.
Yes Les did all those things but we still got hammered in the 2005 Matata floods, even the locals who had lived here for generations had never seen it or heard of it happening before.
Now its Edgecumbes turn to flood, poor buggers streets piled high with everything soaked and contaminated with water from the sewerage. About 30 houses decimated the rest of the 600 homes are from flooded land to 1 1/2 metres up the walls.
As for the cyclones who would have thought we would get two of them within a week? Lucky for us they went past very quickly otherwise most of NZ would be in the chit
Most of our temps are still in the high teens so its mild for us so far. Still in shorts and tees and very rarely do i put on socks and shoes. mind you ive been in gum boots and leggings for the last week.
as for Easter shop openings it chaos over here, the government handed over that to the local councils to sort out last year you can imagine what its like. it was much easier when we were shut Good Friday and Monday. It used to be dont come to NZ on the weekend as were closed. th_lmao1-vi.gif Anzac were closed to mid day.

mornink all.
Having a well earned rest day from the flood, all the work that can be done has been done now its in the lap of the insurance assessors. Makes one like me who is a natural scrounger to see all the stuff thats being thrown out. th_lmao1-vi.gif Tools etc (expensive ones) just being dumped as they got wet. We still have to get into our mates work studio, she used to sell via internet beads and jewelry stuff, she estimates around $ 80k worth of stock and we cant get to any of it as the studio and stock are condemned and classed as toxic. Looks like its just going to be bulldozed over, worst part is the stock was not insured so she,s going to lose out on that stuff.
weather clear blue shy and around 22c.sorry les we are going to hug as much of that :sunny as we can.

good luck mate and happy scrounging as found out in the past that there are plenty of good stuff to be had especially from those fully insured and wanting to update to better shite mate. Unfortunatly those that really need the help usually get short change from the insurance mob. Not complaining if you keep the currant bun for a while yet mate as getting used to being in long gear now but like yourself do not like putting anything on the tatties other than a thong. Best of luck with the weather mate and thinking of you all over there. See I can do fecking compassion for those that think I can not LOL.

unfortunate for me it looks like I shall have to spend a week or two at one of these
Centre Hospitalier
Hôpital de Magenta
Magenta, Nouméa, New Caledonia
Albert-Bousquet Specialized Hospital
Nouville, New Caledonia
I have developed a frozen shoulder, (And we all know what caused that)
The hospital I attend will depend on the location of the doctor.
There is no operation. just intensive therapy.

Sorry to hear that sir Reg, lets hope all goes well for you.
In the meantime a trick that Le Les told me about. (And we all know what caused that)
If you sit on your left hand until it goes to sleep, then use that hand it feels like somebody else doing it. th_lmao1-vi.gif th_lmao1-vi.gif

morning all.
don't envy you m'Lord, over my life i have had both shoulder fixed with that and it's incredibly painful indeed the first one lasted for almost three years before one doctor decided to to give me injections into various places of the shoulder joint, the second time it lasted for 18 months but was only injected twice. i was sent to physiotherapy for manipulation over a period of 4 to 5 moths and all that done was to aggravate it and. second time therapy was more like go home and do this exercise with a giant rubber band WHAT BULLSHIT !!! eventually i insisted on the jabs and it went within 4 weeks so if they are giving you physio my advice is demand the jabs yes it hurts but like sparrow sex m'Lord it's over damned quick :lmao:

had some vehicular activity at 03.40 this mornng. a bang awoke me but wasn't sure if it was a dream or exploding head syndrome again, i laid still for s few seconds then can came another i jumped out of bed to see a 4wd reversing without lights and then take off down the street. being dark i couldn't make out any damage to other cars so turned in again, as i lay i could hear an engine getting closer then came another bang jumped up once more and seen the same 4wd reversing from the rear of a small white van then came his 4th shot at it he rammed the rear of the van it mounted the curb and was smashed into the gable end of a house then calmly the 4wd drove off dow the street once more without lights. in daylight damage is plain to see, drivers side well countersunk, rear dented and no doubt there will be front damage too but i cant see that from here.

weather turned crap this last week air is quite cold so on the cloudy days it's pretty cold, today and tomorrow we can expect snow, hail and sleet showers arriving from the north so merchant42 is quite likely to be already wearing his wellies.
