    Not sure where this one belongs ...

    Thank you

    So torn, what would you do....?

    Have you looked into a specific breed rescue / rehome ? I volunteer for a Dalmatian one , they nearly all have their own . They would have homes waiting and vetted or help by putting feelers out . Good luck not an easy choice by far , it's so personal and emotive .

    Hi all , would anyone know if you have working in aged care certificates which was passed here in Australia if it's usable in the UK ? Or if you would need to re train to a UK standard ? Thank you in advance for any advice or thoughts

    HappyHeart , in reply - I presume it's down to personal choice of a car , make model, price etc .. We certainly found them cheaper . It was just a thought for the op as an option , in case they hadn't thought of that route

    Just a thought to the op , have you looked in your local classified section of papers at cars for sale ? Usually it's the best place to look . I'm sure you will find a reasonably priced runaround or a couple of years old unless you want a newbie straight off the forecourt . Tbh we were over from Perth in October last year and couldn't get over how reasonable most things were .. Saying that we were in the Midlands . Also anywheres reasonable compared to Perth ??

    Singapore as a holiday destination

    Cath it's lovely we came through the week after the Grand Prix long time no hear
  12. Shellybingobingo , as hairdresser ( UK trained ) don't book into a salon without a consultation first , most people can't get a decent level of blonde without bleach & toner .. But a lot can , you just need to stress you need high lift colours and if they won't use them walk away . There's some really bad hairdressing here to be be sure , I have a client that had a normal tint blonde not even high lift and I couldn't do her hair last year as I was on my jollys .. She went a salon and they refused to use a tint , she's a perfect blonde , they used bleach and was awful !! Took me months to get it back

    Singapore as a holiday destination

    We went last year on holiday two adults and an 8 yr old , we loved it . Its very humid ( well it was in October ). we stayed on Orchard road at the Holiday inn , we found it very clean and lots to do , we also ran out of time 5 days wasn't enough ( we did a stop over from the UK ) . The food we loved , there was enough choice to choose from ... the shopping was amazing and blew my brain , after living in WA for 6 years you tend to forget what's out there Personally we found the prices about the same as here in WA and a bit more shop around for food and / gifts , food courts were cheaper to eat at but its mainly Singaporean food , which we loved my daughter wasn't so keen . Sentosa island was fun and I would love to split it another time and stay on both .. advice would be add trip adviser and read through there too
