    how long do you give Australia

    Hi we arrived here in may 2011 the first few weeks where the hardest starting a new job and waiting for all our stuff to arrive. TBH once i got all our stuff that was me sorted out and the wife took a month to settle in now we love it nice atmosphere apart from the south African neighbor over the fence which one day will feel the wraith of my boot. But Perth is a nice place to live nice beaches lots of stuff to do good public transport system. Drivers are something to be desired ie they are crap lol. So would i go back to the UK at this moment in time no but i enjoy living here the kids love living here we got a dog now lol and saving away for a deposit for a house. plus its a little different for me i can come and go as i please now as i got citizenship after 90 days of arriving which was handy.

    So far so good

    Well we arrived in Perth on the 13th of May, at first I had some reservations about the move i had all sorts of feelings about have i done the right thing? will my kids suffer? The first few days were hard. Once we finally moved in to the property provided by work things seem to get better. The kids got in to the school where they are thriving, something which is a weight of me and the wife’s mind. As for work - I am pleased with my decision to move to this new work environment but it is hard to adjust to the way things are done. That been said I am enjoying it. Initially getting set up was hard it felt like everyone was trying to rip you off which I am sure you will understand once you get here. Just be careful I would give Telstra a wide berth and foxtel! I would not touch with a barge pole. It looks like sky, it’s the same company as sky, but it’s a far cry from what you’re used to back in the UK. So on to cars I took my car with me it arrived about 3 weeks after I arrived I used Iron chef who gave a good service. But be warned there are other hurdles to overcome once it gets here witch Iron Chef helped with thanks to you Kristian keep up the good work and I will get around to sending you the photo’s I promise just been really busy. Well that’s all I have for now.

    The journey starts

    As of tommoz I am starting my trip to Perth and we are looking forward to it start tommoz with a stay over in Newcastle then a flight to London on Monday morning. The Monday will be spent at Australia house signing paperwork for my new job. The the hard bit starts on Tuesday with a flight to singers with a 2 day stop over then onwards to Perth.
  5. I used a diff insurance company for half the price but it's up to you if you can be bothered looking around I used bjm
  6. I just received all my paper work back ref the arrival of my stuff and by the luck of uck it all gets to Australia on the 16 th and we arrive on the 13 th will have to wait up to 2 weeks for sea freight and 7 days for the air freight but she said it shoul only take a few days for the lot so living with the inlays for a while seems to have paid of a wee bit.
  7. So my question is after looking around these are the 2 schools in the catchment area i was wondering if one is better that the other. a few advantage points for me is beach primary is only half a mile away as bungaree is 1 mile away any help would be gratefully received.

    You want to go to your local gamestation and buy a second hand one for 70 quid where they look good as new and you save your self about 80 quid and buy your self some pre owned games and make a saving that's what i would do but hats just a suggestion further to this post i would not get a kinect just yet wait to your wee un is older as they walk past it and take control and you will all get annoyed with it and not play it lol thats from past experience from my little one
