    I'm sure that the OP has got some answers to their question or food for thought. As the thread has descended into personal comments I'll close the thread

    We take the ... "the receptionist never smiled" type comments with a pinch of salt .. maybe they were busy? If something was wrong and the hotel put it right then that's ok for us. I do think that some people e.g. book 3 star and expect 5

    It sounds like you're trying to import the employer's nomination application? If that's the case, it is not possible. You are not the applicant so you don't have access to import their application.

    I worked from home, here in Sydney, full-time for 11 years from 1997 and then on the odd occasion for another five years. I supported a large mainframe IT system remotely via a dial-up link originally and then used Citrix in later years. Loved every minute of it. People used to ask me if I was ever tempted to do the ironing instead of working. As if! I loved having no-one looking over my shoulder all day, being able to sort out my own hours, work in my nightie if I wanted to and not have to be part of any office politics. When I finally did return to working in a huge open-plan office, I was amazed how noisy it was and how little work people actually did as they were permanently being distracted by other people moving about, other people's phones ringing, having to break off whatever they were doing to attend another meeting. I was far more productive at home and enjoyed it more.

    @TinaH there was only a mistake in IT return. Later on it was rectified. Expecting a big jump this week ?

    Haven't seen agile used in that context before. It's generally used as a development methodology. But I get what you mean. You would probably use the word digital to describe what you mean. Although strictly speaking I've never considered that a correct term. But yes, being able to work remotely is brilliant. I can work anywhere with a laptop. I could use a phone, but it's limited for what I do. It's one of the things the UK is leading the world.

    Since way before 2008. I was using Citrix to remote in to a customers environment back in 2000. Not sure how accessible that kind of software was from home at the time though and certainly not while mobile. Dial up internet was still the main internet connectivity at that time and that was slow. Being able to connect all the time is a bit of a double edged sword. Great for flexibility to work whenever and wherever but unless you are really disciplined it can start to eat in to your non work time and take over your life a bit.

    Trip advisor is ok. Have to be discerning though - some go to a three star hotel, in a tropical location and then complain they had fans not air con, for example. Clearly they were expecting quite a lot for the price and complained when reality didn’t match their expectation. So take with a pinch of salt - and check all the reviews. If there is a significant pattern of complaints, then there may be something to it, otherwise it could just be someone who is a curmudgeon venting their spleen.

    Good time to fly. Take an empty pillow cover with you. If you find you have a stretch of four to yourself, fill it with the little pillows and excess blankets and you have a full sized pillow. If you miss Easter, you may get a stretch of four down the back of the plane. They don't let you take water on board to Australia, so take an empty bottle and ask the hostesses if they will fill it. If you get in a taxi in Perth, make sure you know where you are going, as the chances are the driver won't.

    Alrght, so I guess tonight it is time for me to open the bottle of champagne I have in the fridge which I bought when I submitted my visa application on the 17/11/17 with the hope of celebrating the granting of the visa. Haven't read the grant letter because I am not able to see it on the "Messages" section, but I was just very intense everyday looking at my immi account online to see if the "Furhter Assessment" status changed to "Finalised", which just occured 5 mins ago. Reading the word "Granted" next to my name.. ohh my godness.. It is the best feeling ever.. The most anxious wait started on the 14th of Feb after additional documents where requested, but I am glad today the wait is over. Hope you all get yours soon. See ya when I see ya dudes!!

    I have around 15 people work for me ,varying in age from 14 to 50. The uni students may be bright on paper but some dont have an ounce of common sense between them. My best worker is a slightly overweight Aussie who was bullied all through school ,is crap at english and writing and just about scraped through general schooling, she woops the butts of these uni grads.

    Absolutely. I know some people worry about the disruption to education, but I think they gain so much from the experience, it's worth it. However, as you say, that's only if the employer is paying the relocation costs. If the family is having to wear the thousands and thousands of pounds in relocations, that starts to affect quality of life day to day.

    How about this - Suicide rates per 100,000 people Finland - 22.3 Norway - 14.0 Denmark - 9.1 UK - 7.4 Australia - 10.4 Wouldn't suicide rate be a really good guide ? Source - WHO, 2015
