  4. people look to this forum for advice , if u have never been to australia it can be helpful ..........u come from one of the most beautiful places in the uk ! if im correct your profile says swansea , not every1s cup of tea but there u go every1 is brought up in diff places and what some people love other mite not and ye your right some people get angry when people slag off other places because some people are brought up in areas and have no choice, im sure if we had choices we would all be in the nicest areas with the best schools where life is hunky dorry.........life s what u make it people !!!

    whats butler like

    butler is known as little britain as there is so many brits here you can get a train from clarkson into joondalup in 5 mins and by car its prob about 15 , but to be honest most places u go u have to drive so its not much diff driving 5/20 its gonna be down to personal choice at the end of the day , im from the uk but butler is a bit too far north for me

    Any FIFO people??

    well just to clarify i think 4-1 is a long time and personally i couldn't have coped with 2 kids on my own for that long , on the plus side the week off is more family time if in the uk both os us dud be working and not getting much family time but mu oh does 8day on 6 days off any other rosta and i wudn even entertain u , and ye i heard 4-1 has got the highest divorce rate
