      What type of work do you and your hubby do?

      Have you started checking out the job market to see what is available to give you an idea?
      We'll definitely buy some more thermals, nice to have new ones anyway. My OH grew up in Aust so understands how no central heating / poor insulation can feel winter and summer. Definitely going into this eyes open.

      We're both involved in different levels of administration.

      Also meant to say yes we've been keeping a close eye on the job market over the past 10 months and will continue to do so. Once the visa is approved we will start in earnest contacting agencies and sending speculative CV's. Most likely won't secure a role before landing, however good to get connections underway.
