  1. I don't think it's wise to try to defraud immigration as there will certainly consequences. I would seek the advice of a profession registered migration agent.
  2. Daughters birthday coming up and we do a family meal. She want's fish for the main course and that's been easy. For the starter, my fall back if I can't think of anything else will be to make a soup - but because I make them all the time I was trying to think of something else and got a bit stuck. Looking for ideas that don't contain cheese (daughter), Mushrooms (son)

  4. I do grazing plates a lot when entertaining

    Health care queries - full time Mum

    She will have to pay for all her prescriptions and things like the testing strips for glucometers. Insurance may subsidise some cost (don't know if it covers prescriptions - but this would be an additional premium to pay to them) and there may be a waiting period on some things which you would need to check. There is a diabetes Australia were you can get more information about diabetic care (sure you'd be able to ask more questions there) - there may also be groups particular to the state you're moving to. Look up the PBS threshold - when you reach a certain amount paying out for prescriptions the cost reduces (but this threshold can change annually). You can look up the cost of medications on the PBS website. I don't know if you'd be eligible for the health care card - have you looked at the eligibility criteria on the dept of human services website?
  7. The sauce for the fish is cherry tomatoes and the request for the birthday girl is Asparagus on the side. I can't serve anything with a butter sauce/dressing because of the hubby.
  8. I'll look out that that Rossy - they usually have some lovely oils and relishes. A bit more expensive, but the truffle oil has lasted ages.
  9. Thanks all .. I've taken note of a couple of the recipes and am going to do the melon/ham salad for the starter

  15. daughters boyfriend doesn't like pumpkin .. but I like the recipe. Not sure I've seen sherry vinegar (but not looked).

    Great attitude to explore and live in the here and now whilst planning your move back. Are you from Preson (as your username suggests?).
  19. I'm doing a cherry tomato sauce with the fish - but will save this one for another time.

    Where to start? Perth and Perth living.

    They say Perth is sleepy but we were in Darling Harbour the other week and the restaurants were all closed by 10pm and the one we were in stacking chairs/tables around us whilst we were still eating at 9.30pm - couldn't get us out quick enough. We have the Fringe on at the moment which is great - heard on the radio it's one of the largest outside of Edinburgh. I love living here

    They check on your way out … so you'd be leaving items you'd paid for on the floor

    They've checked bags in Perth as long as we've lived her .. you say you lived her too so it must be familiar to you.
