    Friday night and going nowhere...

    So my mind has started to wonder where I might lay my hat in the next chapter of my life, as a soon to be single bloke after 28 years.
    Brain says head to where the work is, which unfortunately tends to be the bigger towns and cities, which just aint me.
    Heart says head south, as in VERY south.
    54 yr old currently self employed tradesman painter, capable of plenty of other stuff so not really fussed on what I do. Not likely to come out of my situation with a kings ransome, but should have a decent deposit.
    I like my hunting, and fishing too, but not so much the fishing these days.

    Your thoughts on this fine Friday evening please gents (and ladies).

    Feel free to turn this into a North south shitfight. It will be more entertaining that way

    Reading this while sitting eating at Te Arawa fish shop off Fairy Springs rd with my boy. Life couldn't be much better... It could be but I won't go there.
    I do miss the South Island's hunting that's for sure...
    I've got Maketu, stray lining out Motiti and Opape. Not to mention fly fishing Awahou and Tarawera through summer.
    Hunting here could be worse too. I suppose home is where the heart is aye mate
