    Help needed!!!!

    Hi Guys, the best thing you could do for the time being is look outside of Perth for the first couple of weeks untill you find ur feet. i dont mean like 10minutes away, i mean like an hr away. So that you have a base to use just to get started....Perth is quite expensive now.....im sure there are holiday rentals further afield... Let me know how you get on, i will have a look if i can for you. If you need me to that is. mark (marknhelen)

    hi karen, yeh time does fly...loving life now tho which is good...the future looks good.... The kids love it here now aswell so that is a big bonus for us,, cos that part was really hard for a couple of yrs to go through. The main thing is we went through it and made it out the other side...x

    Homesickness going

    I read all these threads about being homesick.....Its family you miss and friends....the reason why most of us are here is because we want a better life, and the future did not look that good in the UK when we applied....The heart strings was all ways going to be the hardest one to get over, and that will never go away. This country has so much to offer, you have just got to look in the right place for it and you will find what you came here for...Your family and friends cant give you good life thats why you looked elsewhere to start a fresh......you just have to learn how to cope...DONT FORGET MOST OF THEM ARE AT THE END OF A TELEPHONE OR COMPUTER, so having conversations with your family and friends is allways possible...

    We are back on here.

    Hi to all.....Well its been a couple of yrs since we were on here. So a BIG HELLO TO ALL THOSE who know us...Its been a rocky road , but we got through it and yes we still miss family.....Do we miss the uk, i dont think so.... Even the kids dont want to go back. I think for us it was the best move ever, and trust me when we stepped off the plane i did think to my self what a great place...That was the Holiday mode, and then the reality set in and for a while i though what the Hell have i done...All i had to do was think what we had in the uk and was the future bright,,,,,That soon set my mind at rest on why we were in Sunny Queensland...There was no Bright Future in the UK, and Helens Health and the kids future was top of my list as to why we moved here..... It was Hard at first, but we got there...... life is looking good and now we want to move to another area. I see that a few people on here have become Moderators, WELL DONE to you guys.....I remember some of you, and your issues as junior members, lol.... So if any one needs any help in areas that they are having problems with, just give me a shout. I will help if i can. marknhelen (mark)

    Help! Robina or Pacific Pines???

    Hi Guys Well we live at Palm Beach which is a 5min walk for us to the Beach, we love it here. You have got Tugun and Coolangatta south of us which is a short drive and then north of us you have Burleigh heads , mermaid waters, and then of ourse Surfers Paradise which is a 15-20 min drive . But they are all easy access to shops and cafes and there are quite a few schools and private schools around us that are all a short drive . I agree with Ozzipom about Robina and Pack Pines, we had a drive around there and they are packed in there like sardines, just like typical housing estate in the uk, which is ok if you like that sort of thing. As Ozzipom has said you are far better to get booked into some tempary apartment and have a look around for your self. Good Luck guys, if u need any help with anything before or when you get here give us a shout.
  13. <p>Hi Calngary, marknhelen here down at palm beach,Gold Coast,qld been trying to get hold of a member called <strong>thesunderlands</strong> i think thats what they are called. I have been talking to them via email, but now my email address has been hacked into and i cant access my email so now i cant get hold of them. They are a couple just like us , where she has had a kidney transplant and i was helping her with her paperwork, any chance you could get there email address for me, if not forward my new email address which is <a href="mailto:mark13v@yahoo.com.au" rel="">mark13v@yahoo.com.au</a>...... Your help with this would be much appreciated. Thanks.</p>

  14. Hi We notified Centre-link straight away, also when you speak to them tell them you didnt earn anything in the last year before you got here, you should get the full whack. mark
