Very very cool - yes you win!
OMG you just made me homesick with that L&P bottle!
ATIAMURU????? I used to live there! You know how tiny that community is? And how big this forum is?? What are the chances? My parents used to own the Landmark servicestation. I don't think it's there anymore? As if the L&P wasnt enough to tip me over.... now I'm really feeling homesick lol
Did you know the McGregors? Robyn and Grant were the parents, and the kids names I can't remember..Simone? maybe was the daughter. Now that would too much if you knew them as well!
WELL!!!! As it happens..... yes! But not exactly when I lived there. Robyn & Grant actually lived at Upper Atiamuri I think, or maybe Ngakuru? Ohakuri? They were my aunt & uncles besties, Tom & Avis Cook. I used to milk cows for Tom & Avis in the holidays once we had left Atiamuri for the Big Smoke (Tokoroa ahahahaha). I didn't know Robyn & Grant's kids. I think they might have been a bit oklder than me and had perhaps left the district?? Or at least were old enough to not socialise with the parents. I am so not telling my Australian husband about this conversation lol. He says all Kiwis are related and if they aren't then they know who is!
I can't tell you how much you have made my day. Thanks xxx
How funny! Well Robyn and Grant McGregor were friends of my parents ever since I can remember ( and I can remember back to age 4). There you go - typical NZ 2 degrees of separation
Ask ypour parents if they know my parents: Ray & Joan Wood. I'm too scared to ask who your parents are lol, they were probably our neighbours in one of about 8 towns we lived in!
I recall Solvol being very scratchy ( last time I sued it was probably about 40 years ago ,lol). But this sand I have from Raglan is so fine that it's like a powder - maybe even finer than the pumice?
Hamiltonians though and through.
Or Tom & Avis, who now live in Rotorua.
Oh all you Kiwis bugger off. I desperately want to come back for a trip to Northlands but don't have the money at the moment :'(
