    Hi People nurse
  5. Hi hun x kept bottling it really but now my boy has started asking to move!! he's 6 now and I have started seriously thinking about it again, I am at an age where if I don't do it now I never will and I hate living with regrets! Being back on here is the first step I say!! SCoop x
  6. I was all set to move to Aus 6 years ago when my little boy came along to disrupt plans! I thought I should stay close to family but am now again thinkin of the move down under! I am reading the cost of living has gone up over there! Are there any nurses out there that can offer some idea of income for a community nurse or single parents to offer input on how you manage in your own? Thanks in advance:wacko:

    Bless ya Cal Made the bad decision not to go but to move near the folks instead!!! What a bad error of judgement!! I now only have two dogs who are showing their age. My little boy is now 3 and I am again thinking of migrating!! Going out for hols next year all being well, will do some research on child care and pre and post school clubs. Don't suppose you know if they have such a thing as family friendly policies in the health system?? Sorry for the questions Cal but you seem to have a handle on most things hun Take Care SCoop x
  10. Hi Wardy Was reading the thread the other night and felt a little nostalgic. Have tried to settle here, making the move close to the folks, now realising this was a mistake. I am going to visit friends in Aus next year and do a little research on child care around shift patterns. With my boy being a preschooler and Aus kids starting school later it may be a challenge. I am hoping it will work out the desire to move just will not go away. Expect to see me on here a little more in the future, if you can bear it. Take care SCoop x
  11. Hi there It has been a dream of mine to move down under for a few years now. I suspended my move a couple of years ago thinking it would be wrong to take my boy away from his family. I am now regretting that decision. I may regret moving but I have decided to give it a go. I have just moved house to be near my folks to get help to be told that my boy will grow up to be a pansy because I tell him not to hit people. The help I was promised has not materialised. It may take me a while to make the move financially but I am going to make it happen this time. I have had enough of trying to live my life to keep others happy when it is never reciprocated. Where are you thinking of moving too? Hope it all goes well for you. Sharon x

    Glad to see you made it Cal n Gary. Good luck with your new life hope it all goes well for you. Love SCoop x
  14. welcome back SCoop.

    Hi Cal Trying to catch up with whats been happening whilst I have been offline!! Big Congrats to you xx nearly there. xx I have made the tough decision but it feels right at the moment. I just don't want to take my little boy away from his family at such a young age!! We don't have a large family and I just feel it's important for him to be close to them whilst he can. I have received contact from my agent regarding acknowledgement received from DIMIA so may do the medicals and validate as this will give a five year window! Hope all your plans go smoothly hun. Good luck with it all Love Sharon x
