  1. Jet lag

    Jetlag gets worse as you get older I think- or at least it takes a bit longer to recover. I used to know a pilot and I asked him how he coped. He said he used sleeping pills which is a bit scary when you think about it. Hope he didn't use them on board !!
  2. Shoes

    Bear in mind that in Summer the sand on the beach is too hot to walk barefoot!
  3. Why do UK supermarkets need uniformed security guard?

    I have never seen security guards in the shops except when they are collecting cash. Guess I must be lucky .Surptised what you say about South Australia as I thought it was really safe, safer than Victoria where we have had some problems lately because of new immigrants who haven't learned how to live here yet.
  4. Why do UK supermarkets need uniformed security guard?

    One of the good things about living in a no through road- you know most people and recognise strange vehicles. We don't have to lock up either ( but usually do, though sometimes forget). We haven't had any probs with parcels left at the front door when we are out unlike some in other suburbs. Our last house which we left in 1992 we hardly ever bothered to lock unless we were away on hols.
  5. I wouldn't be happy with dogs, either, unless they lived outside. They smell, most of them.
  6. Bore water property

    We used to have a place at the beach on bore water and tanks. They told us not to drink the bore water because it was contaminated so we used it for the garden and bathroom only. I used to drink the tank water and I'm still here ( make sure the mozzies can't get in).
  7. Newbie looking for info on renting

    Which part of Melbourne were you looking at? It is very,very big.
  8. Australia's economy is a house of cards

    Oh we're going to hell in a handcart . Wouldn't it be good if we got at least a couple of good, far -sighted politicians instead of the self serving ratbags we have just now?
  9. Have we made a mistake of returning to the uk?!

    I think bogans can be quite loveable- not sure what is described as 'chav' is.
  10. Australian House Price Growth

    We have a pathetic government who sit on their hands. They really don't care about the young ones and future generations but they will pay the price, that is for sure. The country will become unstable as people look at the whacko politicians outside the mainstream.
  11. Have we made a mistake of returning to the uk?!

    To get back to chavs- they didn't have those when I came to Australia and I am not 100% sure what they are. I assume they are unemployed /unemployable youths with criminal tendencies living in what I have heard described as 'sink estates'. They only had mods and rockers when I left!
  12. Have we made a mistake of returning to the uk?!

    Have to say the people I know in Melbourne are far, far more 'cultured' than the Londoners I once knew. They are into ballet, opera, visiting art galleries etc and of course good food and good coffee. It depends who you meet of course!
  13. Social worker - children's

    Good luck in you new position and welcome. It is a pretty area where you are.
  14. Orthodontist

    Start saving- it is a big, big rip off here!
  15. Port Stephens?

    Will you guys just shut up? I am soo jealous it hurts
