  • Island Life: The Prime Minister Has Spoken,

    I was living in Helensville at the time. If you think Auckland is small, Dunedin is mindblowing. A few months after we moved here, my mother in law died. The lady my wife asked to look after our mail while we went to the funeral in Christchurch turned out to be one of her cousins....
