    Hi Baxters 2011 and Caroline! The last one I organized was a really big success so no reason why we can't do it regularly. You won't miss out.... Honestly! There is always something to do. Will see you both soon.:jiggy: Kitty. :biggrin:
  8. Hi guys! Really feel like a night out. Anyone like to join me? This Tapas bar is really good and a lovely place to meet new people. Let me know if this sounds good and I can book it for a Saturday night in November. My daughter, who works there has just reminded me that on a Sunday there is live music. That might be an option. :jiggy: Look forward to hearing from you all. Kitty. :wub:

    Medical at Shrewsbury?

    Hi Welshie, We had our medicals done with Riverside. They came in at the cheapest in the area and were very quick and professional. The Practise Manager is very helpful and re-assuring and as they've done loads of medicals for folk moving to Oz/NZ, so they know what they're doing. Each of your family will have a full 'MOT' - literally checking that your whole body is fine. You'll have to provide a urine and give a blood sample. They have to wait for the blood results to come back before they can send all your paperwork regarding the medicals to a central office in Oz. I think it's in Sydney if I remember rightly. They send it by 'International Signed For' so it doesn't go missing. You will of course have to get your chest Xrays done beforehand and take them along with you on the day of your medicals'. There's nothing much to worry about. Good luck, Steve.

    Newly arrived in Point Cook....

    Hi everyone, We have been here 7 weeks now and have no regrets about moving here. We had researched the area before we moved out but took a gamble as we'd never actually been here! I'm sure many others have done something similar in other parts of Oz as well. Point Cook is developing on a HUGE scale that would be unimaginable back in the UK. Due to it's very commutable distance (22 Km) to the CBD (City) it is proving extremely popular. You get the best of both worlds really; good value land/property and you can enjoy what the City has to offer. Yes, it is like living on a permanent building site in some areas but the facilities are improving all the time. The new Point Cook Town Centre (large shopping centre) opens on the 21 August which negates the need to go shopping further afield to Hoppers or Werribee. Although both those places are in truth pretty close anyway. But at least the Town Centre is very much walkable when it does open. If you want that big beautiful house you've always dreamt off and be within easy reach of the City then you can't go wrong really. It's like everywhere, it suits some peoples needs but not others. So if you're not the gambling type, then get yourself into an apartment or a rental and see how you feel. Good luck, Kitty
  14. Hello fellow PIO ers! We have been in Point Cook just over a month and was wondering if any other newbies would like to meet for a chat/coffee. My name is Kitty and I'm a nurse but not found work yet so I've got a bit of free time on my hands. My two daughters are 15 and 16 and finding the whole move pretty stressful. Would love to meet new people and make some new friendships. Look forward to all the replies!! Kitty and Steve :v_SPIN: __________________
