Hi Jacquidal - I'm sorry to hear your parents are not enjoying Auckland, what a shame at their time of life to have felt they have made such a monumental mistake. My parents live in Morrinsville (1/2 an hour from Hamilton) which is a small town built up around the farming community. There seems to be a lot of elderly people who have retired there. They love it but already had friends and distant relatives here in NZ and had visited numerous times before their permanent move. They have joined Probus, my Dad plays bridge and my Mum is learning and she also plays croquet. I think provincial towns could be more friendly than the bigger cities but I don't have any experience of cities in NZ so I may be wrong! I find people in NZ on the whole to be friendly but I have also met some pretty ordinary ones too - I don't really find them any more or less friendly than the Brits but then I was from a rural friendly county of the UK. I can't say that I have made many friends in the past 6 years either! I really miss the British humour and having a good laugh but hey ho I'm lucky that I have a job and a roof over my head! I really hope your Mum and Dad can find a way forward as it would be very hard on you if they did go back to the UK.
