    How do I sort the post and change of address?

    We use a postal divert and http://www.scanmypost.co.uk for our uk mail.

    There is a Quest in Narre Warren - about 5 mins from Berwick. I have not stayed there but have stayed in other quest apartments and found them ok

    Google search reckons charcoal should be applied to the bite as a poultice (not ingested) and will draw out the venom from the wound

    redirecting mail from uk to oz

    We have our mail on 12 months postal divert by royal mail to http://www.scanmypost.co.uk. They then scan everything as a PDF and email you to say you have mail. I download and save the PDFs or get the odd document that needs keeping forwarded to my parents in uk. Works out very fast and pretty economical. They are regulated like a financial organisation wrt confidentiality as they are dealing with personal data. Working perfectly so far

    Depo injection for all 3 to stave off pmt and pregnancy for months at a time - draw back is increased appetite so you will need more dairy milk :-)

    Melbourne suburbs advice

    We are renting in Balwyn North. 30mins into CBD by car, great schools, rental properties within your budget, massive Westfield shopping centre 5 mins away, park and ride a few minutes away for the CBD and eastern freeway (Doncaster exit). we are also just at the end of the 48 tram. We have been here 4 weeks and it seems great Good luck with your search. Feel free to message Palmyra
  7. We arrived in Melbourne 4 weeks ago. Our possessions don't arrive for weeks yet as we went the shared container route. There isn't that much difference in the prices of most things if you shop around. but we had our stuff picked up 4w before leaving the uk and spent 4 w with feck all and have turned up an are buying loads of things all at once to cover the weeks before our possessions arrive. We have bought a washing machine even though we have one on the boat as we couldnt face more laundrettes with 2 little kids having used them in uk before leaving. In hindsight we wish we had gone for our own container and brought as much of our stuff as possible, and had it picked up a couple of days before flying, then arranged a serviced apartment for the 4-6 w after we arrived till our stuff turns up. - if you want a barely used washing machine in September let me know :-))))
  8. So are there lots of Brits sitting at their tables listening to the live band and not knowing who else is here from pio? We are siting on a big table with 2 kids next to the band. :-)

    role reversal

    My oh will be daddy daycare now we have arrived. Having spent the last 4 weeks holidaying with the kids I am looking forward to working :-)
  10. We used Doree Bonner and Gutted to find that although we have been in Australia 10 days that our possessions have still not left the uk despite being collected 8 weeks ago. Not likely to see them for another 8 weeks.

    Doctors' thread

    What speciality? Normally you go through AMC and your college as well as AHPRA - depends on speciality and qualifications

    Doctors' thread

    The company I will be working for helped with my paperwork. I was advised to apply to AHPRA first whilst awaiting RACGP - it came through quicker and then waited for RACGP - but meant that I had AHPRA approval a week after RACGP. It took us 26 weeks from accepting the job to getting visa through - but I had to do 2 resubmissions to AMC each taking an extra 2 weeks with postage etc
