  3. Dyslexia is not disease! you are right. I have it, it has never stopped me doing anything. I got told I had it in 1986 and now I am 41 and very happy with it. I do not blame my old teachers. I did as well as everyone else at school, I just did things in a different way to everyone else.:confused:

    Visa help please.

    Hi, what I mean is when we were granted the visa's you only have five years to use them, we need to go home for a while but then want to come back. We were told that if we leave Australia for a long period there is some thing we need to do to our visa other wise we cant get back without re applying.

    Is 6 months long enough to know ?

    Two of my boys were very badly bullied at there school, so moved schools and they are now alot better. I think its harder for them because its the first christmas away from everyone. We are thinking about making the move back in the new year.

    Is 6 months long enough to know ?

    We have only been her for 8 mths and all 4 of my kids want to go back. They do not like it here and that has made it hard for us. I dont think it matters how long you have been here you no if its for you or not.

    Adelaide: A better Britain?

    Thats not very nice is it! We have only been here 8 mths and in that 8 mths most of our things got here broken or not at all. The 3 jobs offers were good till we came back and they were no more! The job my OH got he broke his hand and work because of his boss did not mending things in the work shop so because of that we could not get a rental. My kids have been very badly bullied at school. Its been very hard for us so do not be so quick to tell people to back!
