The REAL UK story... well... our's anyway.

It's funny... everyone back in NZ that has been over to the UK tells you how AMAZING it is... Christine and I were sitting around the other day... and we were thinking that this isn't really the case. Let's just assume that one isn't into drinking and partying hard for a minute... What else is there here for you... the things that stick out to us the most are:
- The history.
The deals on stuff
The lack of service
It is shocking the lack of customer service and the amount of beauracracy!!! People are really unfriendly on the phone and the banks require so much paper that it is little wonder that the Amazonian rainforest is shrinking faster than England's chances of winning the World Cup!!!
We don't really like being here... everything we love and cherish is in New Zealand.. But we are both people that will make the most of wherever we are... and realise that we can't really make a snap judgement on the place when we have been here such a short time. We know that when we find a church to go to, that things will pick up a bit... we even have a car now... which makes these things more accessible.
I have a major Job interview tomorrow and have to give a 10minute presentation on Volunteer recruitment... this will be an awesome challenge!
Will keep you posted!
