One thing I am  not looking forward to when we move to Auckland is neighbours!


Why the hell would you move from Martinborough to Auckland?

Polyphonic windchimes are far more pleasant to the ear than non-polyphonic. Unfortunately, polyphonic windchimes are not that easy to find. Most of the cheaper windchimes, irrespective of metal or bamboo, are non-polyphonic dischordant mess of clanging n banging.




My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

They aren't annoying when they are yours so ...

...  get a bigger set, initiate a wind chimes arm race, then offer a mutual decommissioning treaty laughing

Hmm. Having lived in and around London and the SE of England for a long time, rest assured Auckland is still a cruisey place in comparison if you pick the right neighbourhood. Unlike London, you don't need $5 million to buy in the right neighbourhood yet, either!

In fact we will likely spend half as much on a house in Auckland as we did in Martinborough.

If your neighbor has metal chimes, why not buy him/her a set of bamboo chimes?
Much quieter and more soothing.
And better than garden gromes.

Apparently the flatmate has had a talk and they are now gone.
