The deadliest, jelliest site ever. Brought to you by Niamh Shaw


Our shipment arrived last week and we managed to get most of the 118 boxes unpacked the same day, although there are still a few left in the garage. It was very exciting:

“Husband, look what I found!”

“Er. A potato peeler?”


It was wonderful to have our stuff and the place is starting to feel like home. Nearly everything arrived in one piece, although Husband’s builders bum has a big crack in the middle. (Please believe me when I say how sincerely, earnestly and very deeply sorry I am about that pun.)

We spent an afternoon removing the European two- and three-pin plugs from our electrical appliances and refitting them with NZS 3112 plugs. Husband ran the detachment and wire preparation line, while I screwed on the plugs. Who knew we had so many electrical gadgets? There were about 10 kitchen appliances, 8 types of charger, 5 computers/printers and 5 for Husband’s projector and stereo system and we’re still coming across things we missed.

Some time later:

“Alright,” roared Husband holding up a computer power cord, “who’s responsible for THIS?”

The cord featured a NZS 3112 plug on one end . . . and a European three-pin on the other
