The last couple of weeks have slipped away seemingly uneventfully, with the exception of the following things:
Why is it that consumers have to constantly do battle with the companies that take their money? There are few places that I would recommend these days. About the only smooth transaction we've had lately has been with Joondalup Warehouse Discounts, from which we bought our bedroom furniture. They accidentally delivered the wrong 'Tall Boy', but promptly exchanged it and apologised. As such, they get top marks from me.
Anyway - I will attempt to keep notes of our travels through NZ. That being said, it is unlikely that I'll bother updating anything here until I get back. The plan is as follows:
don_preacher's journal will be our primary travel guide, with the Lonely Planet's Guide to New Zealand in distant second place.
What else... I called my godmother a few days ago for a general chat. Its always nice to talk to her, though it has a habit of making me Swiss-sick. My next visit is due in 2011, so I'll have to wait a while yet.
NOTE: I have just received a call from LSK - The speaker stands have come into stock. I shall pick them up after work :P
