    Thinking about going home.

    We have been here nearly 3 years my kids had problems settling its very hard for teenagers to find the right friends.My son was 17 when we arrived i lost count how many times he was getting on a plane back to England his still here and would now never go back.He has an aussie girl friend and daughter now.My daughter is just starting to get some close friends but not the close friends she had in England and still misses England alot. It takes time to restart and build your life here a few months is not long enough.I have a larger mortgage here but the endless sunshine a great people make it all worth it.You have to think about the reasons you came here and remember nothing has changed in the uk since you have been away.

    It it better for a dog to be left behind?

    Rehome her. we brought our lab out she was so stressed by the flight and quarantine.she had completely lost her voice and had sores on her legs. My vet in the uk had tried to talk me out of taking her i wish i had listened.she now hates being left when we go away on holiday and she hates the thunder storms here.If i had known i would of left her behind but shes part of the family and i didn't want to leave her

    Coming back- why so many??

    I think people come here thinking they will work less and have a better standard of life. But you have to work just as hard here to make ends met as you did in the uk.And without the support network of your family and life long friends.i love it here and have no intention to go back but thats not to say one day i may change my mind.We have to work hard but i have a better house and life style than i had in England. My daughter is in private school could not of done that in England. Today i have been to the gym then home for a swim laid in the sun by the pool now that is worth all the hard work we have to do to pay the bills.

    North Lakes?

    North lakes isn't for everyone some love it some hate. It has a good shopping center nice parks and is well looked after.Schools are ok but if you can afford it go private far better than any state schools.traffic is not a problem any more now there's new roads.The older side has larger plots. All the new plots seem to be getting smaller there's still the odd good sized plot around.

    Do rentals come with white goods?

    I used a top loader in the rental we have wasn't impressed so brought a front loader.Buy it here as you will then have the warranty if anything goes wrong.

    advice on Clontarf Beach high and Redcliffe State schools

    If you can afford it i would look at private schools.The biggest mistake i made was to put my 14 year old daughter into my local state school.You also have to live in the catchment for state school.Redcliffe has some very good private schools.

    North lakes qld 4509

    My Daughter went to the state school for nearly a year you have to pay for there books and sport.She now goes to a private school which costs quiet a lot more but is worth every penny her grades have been a lot better than state school.The plot sizes in north lakes are very small they seem to be getting smaller and smaller so not much space and very close to your nieghbours.
