Location Location Location & Festive fun

I think I have found a new calling!!! I really like Real Estate. Mind you I think the reason I like it, is that I get all the fun of looking at houses without the stress of having to pay for it!!!!

This week has been really interesting going around lots of open homes and houses for sale with Si's Mum and Dad. Some of the agents out there are utterly appaling, and don't listen to the buyers requests at all, and some bend over backwards to try and find the right property. Si's Mum and Dad told me I was made for real estate as I remebered what they were looking for and what they liked and disliked about every single house, even down to the floorplan!!! If only it provided a more stable income.

So it sure has been a busy week with looking at all those houses and we also had Si's new motorbike to come. It finally got here on Friday night at around 9pm after a mix up with the trucking company. Got the sissy bar installed yesterday morning and then headed of to the family christmas bbq out at my cousin Paul's place in Tangimoana. Was nice to see everyone, although I was a bit hot and my neck got a little burnt!!

Saw Si's Mum and Dad off on their way back to Auckland before racing off to the Lions Club christmas function last night. I was part of the organising committee, so I needed to be there early to do some of the decorations etc. We even had a visit from Santa and I ran a quiz about Christmas.

Today we have my work do out at Apiti, which is where I grew up on a farm. I would realy like to show Si around up there, so we might go up a little earlier so I can show him around a bit.

Now, one thing about my blog, I noticed that in the last week I had over 70 'Hits" or views, and only ONE comment left. I realise that some people don't know how to comment, or they are reading through google reader, and although I don't actually write my blog for anyone elses benefit but my own.....I feel a bit hurt sometimes that no one wants to leave a message. Which is stupid I know, as I am one of the worst offenders at popping into other poeples blogs and not commenting. So, I am changing that, and I will be commenting on other peoples more often!!!

For those of you who don't know how to comment or wish to do so privately, feel free to just drop me an email.


  1. Am sure you know I read :-) and yes I must ring you sometime.... have a great week :-)

  2. Hi Janine - I still read.. I'm looking forward to new photos :) It must feel wonderful to have so much weight off. Merry Christmas to you and Si.

  3. You know I'm a reader as well! Agree with the amount of hits in comparision to the amount of comments does make you wonder...

  4. I read too :)
    Find it most interesting what yah up to!
    By the way - you've prolly missed my latest news...I'm pregnant :)

  5. I must admit, I tend to be a shocking commenter, I read but don't comment often, I will try harder I promise :-)

  6. Hi Janine,

    I am a reader but also hardly ever comment as I often just think I'm prattling for the sake of it.

    I am very much a 'talker' by nature so guess I feel i don't need to ALWAYS have something to say. lol

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know I'm here (Tauranga, ex Aucklander) and am definitely reading. I have just recently kicked started my committment to weight loss so my posts have reverted back to my losses and other related issues.

    Take care
