    Travel in Europe

    If you end up not doing this, what we did a few years ago worked well for us. We flew direct to Manchester got a hire car and had just over a week with family, friends etc and travelled around to a few places we wanted to show the kids (Wales, Blackpool etc etc), we then drove to London stopping off en route at the Zoo etc , explored London for 3 or 4 days taking the kids to Buckingham Palace and some other sites. We handed the hire car back at Gatwick and flew to the Canary Isles for a week, from there we returned to Gatwick for a night then flew to Amsterdam were we had another few days exploring with the kids. From Amsterdam we went to Dubai then back to QLD. It worked for us having a little base in each place so we werent carting 4 or 5 cases/ bags around, we could also go where we wanted or spend longer in one attraction if it interested us more (or should i say the kids! haha) Cal x

    Anyone got any good air frier recipes?

    Mine was only a cheaper one (around $70 ) as i didn't think we needed one so couldn't justify going straight out and buying an expensive one. You can hear it when its on but its not overly loud. Cal x

    Cost of Living.

    Just a reminder, this is not a thread to discuss racism, please take that to PM if you which discuss/ advise other members. This thread is about the cost of living, so back on track please. Thanks Cal x

    Cost of Living.

    This is correct, thanks for understanding and attempting to clarify , time has passed and silly me thought lessons would have been learnt (should have known better).. I have logged on today to reports about a couple of members who cant help themselves and i have had to hide quite a few posts. I have done this as a ONE OFF. Any further comments about other members, any further reports, any further nit picking and bitching and this thread will be locked. That also means that unfortunately we will have to revert back to that old post from Admin and ban any mention of politics, brexit etc which spoils it for 99.9% of the CTF members. Cal x

    Special needs teacher

    Have a look at sites like Indeed.com or seek.com to see what jobs are advertised, it will at least give you an idea of which State seems to have more job opportunities. Cal x
  12. You have the best of both worlds then so thats great, go and enjoy. Cal x
  13. Did you get your citizenship? I would imagine having that will take a lot of pressure off you all. Lots of luck with everything and enjoy travelling Aus Cal x
  14. Totally agree with this. Have you been asked to leave? If not , it is quite common for rental houses to sell, the buyers cannot kick you out if you have a contract and they will know this before they buy. I would be asking if they are looking to move in at the end of your lease though and if so then i would look around for something else and keep an eye on the market a good few months before the lease expires , if not sooner.

    Bank account pre move

    Not sure what you mean by ''makes anyone feel better' but it sure as hell made us feel better when we opened ours wayyyy prior to our move and could send funds when exchange rates went up ,lol, and leave it if rates dropped . All in ,doing that secured us an extra few thousand $$$$ for when we arrived which certainly came in useful. Cal x
