    Website for Short Term Rentals

    Stayz.com has always been quite popular and some use Air BnB, but a google search for Holiday accommodation or short term accommodation should also throw up some sites. Another option is a cabin in a holiday park, this can work well if you have kids as there is normally a pool and playground on site. 4 weeks seems to be the average for a stay as this gives you time to check out areas, find a rental etc. Cal x

    Think outside the (city) box

    Totally agree, we did similar back when we migrated, and are just under an hour from the city in a semi rural area. So much more value for value and never struggled for work. Cal x

    This Extinction Rebelion Mob?

    There was a photo floating around social media this morning of the mess they have left behind. If the photo is true it is disgusting the amount of plastic bottles and other trash left lying on the ground now they have gone. So much for recycling and protecting the environment ! Cal x

    Hardest part of 190

    Waiting for the final answer once everything has been submitted, was the one thing that drove us insane. Cal x
  7. Hopefully, the muddle up is just the pay rates.. If you were casual and have changed to permanent as the contract says, ,your hourly rate would drop meaning the contract issued had the wrong rates stated if the figure was the salary you say are on now as a casual employee. Cal x

    Swimming pool installation

    When we had ours done it included all earthworks, the delivery and fitting of pool and then filling it around it. A couple of feet of concrete all around and one row of tiles all around was also included in the cost. We opted to have a larger concrete area so paid the extra, we were also responsible for all fencing costs. I cant remember costs as it was 10 years ago now,sorry. Cal x
  9. The rate the new estates are being built around here there is no downturn in the property market. In the 11 years we have been here there hasn't been much change in prices ,a house selling for $350k 10 or 11 years ago will now be around $400k so pretty steady really. Property is selling quite quickly too. I think some States and cities are more affected than others. Cal x

    Best way to build air miles as a family

    The last 2 times our in laws have visited us in Aus, they paid for standard flights and used their air miles to upgrade to business class , giving them a more enjoyable flight and door to door service. Maybe something to think about if your going to have the points anyway. Cal x

    British Bulldog/Snub Nosed Pets

    I have never bothered with the cooling mats,although i know some people do... There are a few BB around where i live , they certainly don't seem to be uncommon over here. Where in Brisbane are you going? Our's love going to Nudgee dog beach, its a bit of trek from here but worth it for them. Cal x
