Things seem more expensive this year in New Zealand . But then I guess we had a few things to replace and lots of stocking up to do .We are still in the marina at Riverside drive . Penny is making Christmas cake and puddings . We hired a car this week and have decided to buy one as we will be here for 18 months or so.At least car insurance is less expensive than UK. The water heater is installed and I have fitted a new thermostatic valve to control temperature and hopefully prevent future pipe explosions due to pipe over heating . We are looking to renting a long term marina berth at the entrance to the harbour
