Hi there. Thanks for all that!! Yes I would love a contact for future but for now I will look around the whitford area. I will be moving out Manukau maybe even Ramarama way this time next year so this will be more handy. Thanks very much for your reply :-)...and possibly I can get in contact with you again and like you say take me through the procedure. Thanks again.
