  1. Wow, how exciting! So do you plan to find work - now that you're there? Big move over from the UK but worth it when you look around you now I bet! Good place for family and friends to visit too - the views are pretty impressive and I love the relaxed atmosphere that goes with it. Everyone is so friendly and helpful.
  2. Hi Jane, Not there just yet but hoping to move up there. How long have you been there and what do you think of it? We're Brisbane way at the moment after travelling from Western Australia, been looking at the different areas up there on the Internet (cause I haven't been there for nearly six years) so just trying to get an idea of where to buy and where not too. :cute:

    Help - Pet Insurance for dog over 9yrs

    Hey everyone, Please help if you can....our dog is due over very soon (he's 10yrs) and we've always had him insured in the uk - but struggling to find a good cover insurance for him over here. It seems that I can only insure him for accidents? Can anyone recommend a good company? (We're Perth side if that makes any difference) I best start working and saving harder!!! Thanks in advance for any suggestions :wubclub:

    Friends in Perth

    Hi all, Just packed up my house today and all my belongings are now wedged into a container (hopefully somewhere safe!!). Just doing the last round of goodbyes - I knew it would be hard but this is silly - my eyes hurt from crying!:em4600: Last ones tomorrow then hopefully fly out Wednesday - think I might spend the first week catching up on sleep and eating!! It'd be good to keep intouch with people doing the same thing - it's hard to explain and talk about things to people that aren't in the same boat. Hope you're all getting organised :wubclub:

    Category 2's - Where are you now?

    Hiya! Turn us purple please!! We got a case officer at the end of January asking for a bit more info and medicals and police checks, which we got done within the week and sent it all. Then got visa grant on 4th March so about a 5 week turn over. Good Luck to all that are going through this rollercoaster ride!! Just stick through it and things will happen. Thank you to all that gave advice and support :wubclub:

    Tools - how clean is clean??

    Hi, This is something we've been thinking about too. How clean is clean?? Just been to an immigration show and discussed with some of the removal companies and they were a little vague. It seems it will depend of what they decide at the other end. We're just wondering as OH is a builder so he has a variety of tools from plastering tools/trowels, bricklaying tools/trowels and large things like kangos and cement mixers which are all well used!! How on earth do you get caked on cement and plaster off tools???? How clean is clean???? So many questions now - because we too have heard things are really expensive to replace there.

  14. This is just endless!! One thing after the other :em4600: So WHO exactly does this effect now - applications after July 2010 or ALL those waiting in the pipeline that haven't got a case officer?? Or is this the news we're waiting for next week??

    Who's waiting for WA SMP??

    We can do it!!! It SURELY can't be long! We've all managed this far (granted only by the power of biscuits/chocolate/alcohol/more chocolate and cake) but we can wait a 'little' longer!!
