    Student Loan Demands

    Has anyone had any luck negotiating payments with the SLC? We are currently at the point where we are starting to struggle to afford to live because of the huge amounts they demand from us. Each time we try to tell them we cannot afford to pay this much they just threaten with debt collection. We have submitted forms to show how much income we have but even that doesn't seem to matter. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Ah no I just read your message Bobj, cant believe I missed the chance to meet the famous man himself. We were down the harbour beach at the weekend and every man that was fishing made me wonder if it was you ha ha.

    I love it Rachael! We decided to go to Cape Hillsborough next week because you have to get there for 6am to see the roo's and jet lag is still taking its toll. We went to Lamberts beach today instead and it is beautiful. There were loads of groups of people having bbq's and an aussie guy said to us that they had just decided to buy the snags 10 minutes ago because its a cheap feed for the kids ha ha love it. Cant wait to have a group of friends to go to Lamberts beach with and get the bbq on xx

    Hey Gateshead Girl, I just moved to Mackay 2 days ago, we are staying in Slade Point at the moment until we find somewhere to rent. We were in Andergrove just yesterday having a drive around. Its such a beautiful place I love it! How do you feel 2 years down the line? We are going to Cape Hillsborough tomorrow to check out the kangaroos, apparently they roam free on the beach there. Hi Everyone else, so far so good. The flights were horrendous with Alex, he cried for most of the Singapore to Brisbane flight and we were not very popular with the other passengers as you can imagine. Anyway off to sort out the bank account etc xx

    Hi Everyone, I have not been on much lately because its our last week in the country and we have been saying goodbye to everyone. I must admit this is the hardest time ever. I have not cried so much in my life. We are now both finished work and I am dreading next Sunday (mothers day) as its our last day in the country. Anyway enough of the doom and gloom, our taxi to the airport is booked and 1 case is packed, its really happening! I hope you girls get there quickly I am really going to need you all xxx

    OH my goodness. This probably sounds stupid but how does this affect daily life? My husband will be driving back and forward to different mines and I keep hearing stories of peoples cars being swept away or getting stuck in floods on the Bruce Highway. Will it stop me from going out of the house? Will there be crocs swimming passed my windows?? hee hee

    Not sure what that amount of rain even looks like but it seems I am about to find out!

    I tried emailing quite a few places to ask if they do deals for long term rentals and their deals were still very expensive. It may be worth looking at places outside of Mackay?

    Hi Everyone, Well everything has been collected by the shipping people, I have sold my car and I have 6 working days left at work! Getting more excited now than nervous.

    Angela you are the queen of the internet. Keep posting your links I love them. I will also be volunteering if I can bring a troublesome 15 month old with me. Welcome to Lynda too.

    Kate - Yeah I drive. I lived in Seattle for a bit and that was hard because of the wrong side of the road etc but it will be fine in Oz I am sure. I read the Daily Mercury (Mackays local newspaper) and 6 people have died on the Bruce Highway since Januaury so its definately somewhere to be very careful.
